Upgrading PC, advice needed

Hey guys, I currently don't have a very powerful machine, and I am really in the need of an upgrade. I'm looking to play some more high-end games. I'm not sure what else i need to upgrade, help is appreciated. :)

Here are my specs.

Windows 8.1 64 bit
MSI B75MA-P45
Intel i5 3570k
8GB DDR3
GeForce GT 620 (Most likely upgrading to a GTX 780)
700W PSU
1TB HD

  1. What budget?

    What psu make and model?

    What case?

    What OS?

    The first thing that is obvious is that you should have a Z77 motherboard and a coolermaster hyper 212 evo cpu cooler so you can make the most of your cpu.

    What speed ram? 2 x 4gb?

    The next is the graphics card. You could do a 780 with a good quality 600W power supply eg Seasonic 620, XFX650 or Antec HCG 620M

    At the end of the list is a 120GB OS SSD. Make you feel like you got a brand new PC.
  2. Upgrading that video card would be your best option. Everything else is fine.

    Sorry , I rushed through it, my mistake.

    My dad bought me a prebuilt computer a year and a half ago. I am unsure of the PSU, it says "700W ATX" and "xg-h700", but I can't find it on newegg or anything, not even on their site.

    I'm also getting a new case, I'm thinking of the Cooler Master HAF X.

    OS: Windows 8.1 64bit.

    RAM: 2x4GB DDR3 800MHz

    I don't really have a budget.
