Upgrade time! Improving current PC for future.

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.

  2. Sorry yes, the main uses of this PC are gaming, photo editing, movie viewing and general web browsing.
  3. Ok with the system above you will easily max games and that is pretty much the best you can get out their at this time... unless wanna super overclock/ video edit...
  4. 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.
  5. Maybe i guess the fans could get worn... If you don't feel comforatable with stock then just grab a cheap hyper 212 plus
