What do you want to accomplish? Do you want faster frame rates? Do you want to do video rendering? If not, you should probably save your money until you have something specific in mind.

Having said that, if you want to upgrade your video cards to crossfire or DX-11, you should start with a power supply. I like the Corsair TX650, but if you are going to do crossfire, get a 750. After that wait until you have a specific goal in mind.

If anything, get a 5850 (and overclock your CPU for a free boost). You'll probably want a better PSU eventually, but if you're not having problems with the one you've got now, I don't think the situation is absolutely dire.
