You should be able to play a majority of games on Ultra settings. Newer and demanding titles will struggle but should still be playable on high settings.

GPU would be your first choice, but you're not going to find anything that's going to blow it away for a similar or slightly higher price. I'm assuming you're not in the US because you can get a 7950 for a reasonable amount?

You never stated your budget. And they aren't so expensive anymore. You can get a nice 240gb ssd for around 130-140 bucks.

Even if you step it up to a 780 Ti, you're not going to play some games on ultra. Get a bigger PSU and SLI/CF or live with high settings on most games. The difference isn't really that big.
