It would help if you could describe in what situations your current build is lacking in performance.

Well, my internet situation is pretty much the biggest thing holding my comp back right now, but we're switching that soon. I would just like to know what exactly would make my comp perform better in general, not that it doesn't do very well already..

Option 1: Get a great cooler for your cpu and oc it as far as you can -> will give good performance boost for all tasks.
Option 2: Get a better graphics card, at least gtx 670 or hd 7970 -> will give good performance boost for most games.
Option 3: Get a z77 mobo + 3770K -> will give good performance boost to some tasks.

Pick and choose :-)

Well, those are all awesome, but that's not quite in my budget. :/  Would putting 8 more gigs of ram (the same as above) do anything..? I think I might just save up for a new graphics card.

If I were you, I would just go ahead & save up all that money up for buying components in the future!

However alternatively you can just get another
EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 for $189.99 after $30.00 rebate from Newegg & enjoy your SLI performance in the latest of games!

Good Luck : )
