Should I upgrade my memory or get an SSD or a new CPU?

So I have a decent pc (AMD A8-5600k, Radeon 7770, 8GB of 1600 ram, 1.5TB hard drive). I was wondering what i should upgrade next. I really don't now which to upgrade to next. I just got the 7770 and 1 TB of HD space. So what should I upgrade?

  3. that a8 is about the min gaming cpu you should have... it's roughly equal to an athlon ii x4 750k. the trick is there really isn't a cpu upgrade out there for you (nor will there be) on the FM2 platform. About the only step up you could make is to a athlon ii x4 760k... which is the exact same cpu only with higher clock speeds (an overclock of your a8 could accomplish the same thing)

    you'd see the biggest pop in day to day performance with a bit of an overclock and an ssd.

    Alright, so I should get a new cpu cooler and a 32GB ssd?

    sure, get yourself a hyper evo 212, do a little overclocking of the cpu part of your chip, and get an ssd (generally the price of 32/64gb ssds are too close to a 120gb ssd to justify paying for them, hell, a 16gb usb 3.0 flash drive would come cheaper and do the job better then a number of those 32gb ssds). If you have to save a little do so...
