Any upgrading tips?

I've had my PC for a little more than a year right now. It currently consists of:

ASUS 24" Monitor
Core i7-3770k
GTX 670
8 GB RAM
1 TB HDD
850W PSU
ASUS P8Z77-V LX MOBO


Anything I should upgrade? I haven't had any problems with it (very little games actually lag, and I even do high end emulation and all is well)

Get an SSD for an easily noticeable speed increase.

So far, my upgrades have been, in order:
SSD
1440p monitor
GTX 780
Mechanical keyboard
16 Gb RAM

Get another 670, maybe a 1600p monitor. Or get some 1080p's that have a 120mhz refesh rate. Yes, as the other poster said, get a ssd.

Either a 2nd 670 or an SSD is what I would do.

So the general consensus is to get an SSD or to get a 2nd 670 and SLI. Quick question though, is my PSU adequate for another 670?

P.S. surprised nobody mentioned anything about upgrading RAM

Your PSU is more than enough. Well, a year ago, RAM prices were cheap, now, not so much. I think last year you could get 16gb of 1600mhz for 80 or so bucks.

850w is bloody overkill, nothing to worry about. Even 750W can handle that.

I have a similar setup. Looking into the new gpus and such I just don't feel like my system has any worthwhile upgrades due. I might look into a second 670 but I am pretty sure I'll be getting Nvidia's next flagship card so not sure if I should just wait or not. My single gpu setup is loud enough at load.

The only worthy upgrade is an SSD probably. Second 670 maybe fine if you feel like it, but that is already pretty good build. Maybe you want to get a 3DS if you haven't.
