Upgrading my PC

So i'm looking to upgrade my pc. This was the pc i had built last year.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/6JTFdC

My price range is going to be around 500 to 1200. I would like the ability to have 3 monitors. I would like suggestions on monitors as well. 4k would be nice but i think that's a bit out of my price range. Also some gaming headphones would be nice.

  1. 500 to 1200? that's too big of a range to make any accurate reccomendations.

    do you have the monitors, or purchaising those as well?

    For about $1000 USD you can go with this. You could save a little cash if you buy two more of the monitor that you already own if it is vesa compatible. To be able to go any higher you would need a better motherboard than what you have at the moment. :P Although that is one beastly setup.

  3. Are you looking to play games on a 4k monitor, or on triple monitors?
    If so, you need a very strong graphics card or perhaps dual cards. That alone will exceed your budget.

    If you will game on just one monitor and use the other two as side monitors, that is not hard to do at all.

    If you are not primarily gaming, what is the main usage of your pc.

    Your pc is very decent as is. Any major upgrade will be more of a replacement than an upgrade since it will involve replacing many parts.

    Like to add another video card (crossfire) you would need a new motherboard. Your current motherboard would work fine with that setup (single 290). The only issue would be if the card doesn't fit in your case. Measure the room you have and make sure that the card is not too long or wide.
