Hello.
I'm planning on upgrading parts of my computer but I'm not sure what component to buy or upgrade next, could someone help me please?

My current specs are:

- i5 4670k @4.4Ghz
- Gigabyte Sniper Z87
- MSI GTX 760 Gaming Edition
- Seagate SSHD 1TB (ST1000DX001)
- 4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz (1 DIMM)
- Corsair H60 2013
- Corsair VS 650W
- Fractal Design Define R4

Any help would be appreciated.

Certainly an extra 4GB of RAM would help. What resolution are you thinking of gaming? 1080P or higher (you would need more than a GTX760, else you're good to go)

I'm not sure why some here are saying the GPU is the bottleneck? It's a 700 series! New!

I don't believe you have a since bottleneck to be real. But I do recommend you have at least 8gb of ram. 4gb is enough, but later on, it won't. Just to be safe lol :) 

To be honest, the GPU is good! But for another 100$ more, you can get a gtx 770. The 770 will beat the 760 and will perform much better! I also don't recommend a water cooler. Get a cooler master hyper evo 212 heatsink! You can still overclock, and it's cheap!

Sir, this is 2014 lol, treat yourself and get a SSD! The samsung evo 128gb will be good :)

Thanks, I thought it was the RAM, I'll get 4 more gb and perhaps an ssd, might get a new GPU later on, or another 760 and SLI.

If you're going to SLI in the future, instead of buying another power supply, get yourself a 750-850 watt PSU. Being on the safe side and saving money.
