Hey guys, maybe thinking a bit too far ahead, but I've got all the parts I need for my new build on the way, and, if indeed I EVER get enough money to upgrade something on my computer, what would you recommend? Here's what I have:

CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Graphics card: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
PSU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
HDD: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
Memory: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=12410BD7015&v...
DVD Drive: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

And I have Windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

So, what's the first update I make?

Video card

Hard drive to SSD

Blue Ray drive

PSU to silver or Gold and modular cabling.

Computer Case (Haf X is one of the top few cases according to Tom's for various good reasons)

In that order. Or work from cheapest towards more expensive.

*** I forgot to mention that my friend gave me a 40gb SSD.

And I have no reason to get a blue ray player, unless computer games will be coming out on BR.

None, it's pretty good for another year or so.

I have two blue ray drives in there because they were on sale and still can read everything all the way back to CD rom.
