Hey guys, so I've had my PC for about 5 years now and I figure it's time for an upgrade in parts (getting some FPS lag in Diablo III etc).

Currently I have:

Monitor: Dell U2711
CPU: i7 920 (Scythe Mugen 2 aftermarket cooler)
Mobo: EX58-UD4P
GPU: 4890 1gb
Ram: OCZ 6gb (can't remember type)
Case: HAF 932
PSU: Corsair TX750

So, if I wanted to upgrade to further future proof this build and give it some more juice (especially now I have a 2560 x 1440 monitor), what upgrades would you make. I'd prefer not to spend more than $1000. I do not need a mice/keyboard etc.

Sorry yes, the main uses of this PC are gaming, photo editing, movie viewing and general web browsing.

No worries thanks for your advice :)  Do aftermarket coolers need replacing after a certain time? I've had the Scythe Mugen 2 for over 5 years now and have noticed my temps are higher now than they were when I initially installed the computer.

Maybe i guess the fans could get worn... If you don't feel comforatable with stock then just grab a cheap hyper 212 plus
