Not really.

An SSD is a possibility though.

Boot ssd and depending on ram speed 16gb 1600 if yours is only 1333 if it's already 1600 just the ssd now peripheral wise a good mech keyboard or GOOD pair of headphones not gaming headset headphones could be worthwhile.
If its elitist to want decent performance, accountability, and class knowledge from the people you play with... SIGN ME UP!

Unless you feel like getting more ram or SSD, there is nothing to upgrade (at $200).

SSD or RAM

1. Sell your 660ti
2. Buy the EVGA GTX 770 for $309 after rebate
3. Profit

Samsung SSDs are pretty low right now. Starting with a 120GB for $85.

Looks good to me unless you want a SSD or just add more HDD space or Ram.
PC game sales= more games then you could ever dream of owning.
