The only thing worth upgrading is your graphics card. Everything else is...good.

Even then - do you get decent framerates? You probably don't even need and upgrade at the moment.

I agree with smorizio. Your system is pretty much good all around.

Its not a top of the line PSU but it should do what you're asking it to do. With that cooler and that processor I would OC the processor a bit, no reason to get carried away, but if you weren't going to OC it why buy an aftermarket fan or a K model processor at all? bump it to 4.4ghz or so and just leave it there since you have all the pieces to do so.

I agree don't touch any parts right now. Only thing you can really buy to help would be a new graphics card but with a 670 Ti I wouldn't do so.

Well first off since I own the same processor that you do I'd tell you to get a closed loop watercooler and overclock that CPU to 4.4GHz. Also upgrading to 8GB of RAM is going to help you out in BF4.

Aside from that if you refer to "Graphics Card Performance Hierarchy Chart" Your wise upgrade would be to something at least R9-280X level of performance it is three tiers higher than what you already have. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car... Other Options would be to SLI with another 660ti or to go up another tier higher and purchase a GTX 780 or the R9-290.
