Is my gaming system good? What could I change about it?

Hello Everyone! Second question:

Is this system any good? I have already built it, so i can't change much. :(

CPU: AMD FX-8320 With stock cooler
MOBO: MSI 970A-G43 Socket AM3+
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GT 520 (Planning to upgrade very soon)
PSU: 500W Cooler Master
RAM: 8 GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 mHz
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB
Case: Diablotek EVO ATX


This system runs very well, and plays all of my games with little or no lag on high settings. Of course, I only play games that I like, which aren't graphic intensive at all. The most GPU intensive game I will be playing is Mirror's Edge.

Thank you all,
Spencer

    Yeah, everything you have there is great. I would have said upgrade your GPU but don't go crazy since you aren't playing games like BF4 or Crysis but you already plan on upgrading.
  2. With your current PSU, the best card you can upgrade to is the GTX 760. E.g. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130934
  3. Your case supports cards up to 275mm long. The card I linked earlier is 9.5" long (241mm) so it should fit. If you don't like that one, make sure whatever you pick is under 275mm, OK?
