Title says it all guys. I am currently running the below build but due to me hating the power button nzxt phantom 410 case. I decided to get a new one. Currently thinking Corsair Carbide 300R windowed case since price seems fair and I absolutely love the power button and look of it. Anyhow since I am going to be moving all the parts over I thought it would be nice to possibly upgrade something. Look at my specs below and ill be open to any suggestions. Currently thinking a GPU upgrade.

CPU: i5-3750k
Heatsink/CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Plus
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LP @ 1600mhz 2x4GB
PSU:Cosair TX750 W
HDD: Intel 520 120GB SSD(might not be 520) & WD Green 2TB 5400RPM(mostly use it to just store shit(videos/photos/web stuff etc...) & 750GB WD Black 7200RMP (stores games or other applications)
CD/DVD: LG & Asus DVD Reader/Burner
GPU: Diamond ATI Radeon 7850 2GB & I have an old MSI 6950 Windforce III 2GB sitting somewhere too.

The only thing it would really need is a new GPU depending how much you game and what settings you are comfortable with.

aside from a major upgrade that doesn't seem necessary in ur system, everything seems fine.

what CPU cooler do you have? this could be a decent time to upgrade that if it's not something that can handle some OC'ing that you might do to that CPU

I updated the top post using Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Plus and Ocing at 4.2ghz at the moment stable. I guess the other option could be a better cooler(liquid cooler if anything) and try to hit 4.5-4.6ghzs. Currently with the 212 for the games I use at max settings i only hit about 60 C.

But seems like you guys are right its fine atm, I guess I go on a frenzy when it comes to getting new computer stuff. Just want it all lol but I appreciate the input.
