What should I upgrade next for performance, with a budget of around $200-250? Components in body.

I have an extra bit of money and I am looking to expand my PC.
I have:
Asus M5A99X Motherboard
AMD Phenom ii 4 core @3.0ghz CPU
8gb 1600mhz Patriot G2 RAM
128gb M4 SSD
2x 500gb Seagate HDD's in RAID 1
2x Gigabyte 560 GPU's
NZXT Phantom PHAN Full Tower Case

I have a budget of $200, maximum $250 if necessary. I don't want a system overhaul, just one or two upgrades that would help with gaming and photo/video editing.

Thank you and have a good Thanksgiving!
