I bought an "iBuyPower" computer a few months ago and have been having fun making small upgrades. Now I'm looking to see if I can make any other upgrades. Stock components include:

CPU: 951i Intel Core i3 540(3.06GHz)
RAM: 4GB DDR3 @ 1333 DIMM 240-pin (2x2GB)
HDD: 1TB SATA II
MOBO: Intel H55


So far I've added:

PSU: SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W
GFX: EVGA NVIDIA 1GB GTX460
(Monitor: Asus VE245TL-P 24" HD 1080P LCD)

In Starcraft 2 in "ultra" settings at 1900x1600 resolution I get around 70FPS and it's pretty much the only game I play. I'm thinking about upgrading to 8GB of ram with this but I'm not sure if any further upgrades will make a difference. Also, I was looking at sound cards but since I usually use headphones it seems like that would be a wash or only marginally different than on board.

Any suggestions for reasonable upgrades?

you don't need 8GB of RAM and i doubt you would see any difference.

Alright. Well in that case it looks like my next upgrade will be an additional USB missile launcher.
