Pc upgrade

I am planning to upgrade my pc in the next couple of months with a budget of about £200.
Here is my current build.
Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Unlocked Processor - Retail

500GB Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 3.5" SATA III Hard Drive

MSI Z77A-G43 Intel Z77 Socket 1155 DDR3 PCI-Express Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit

Zalman Z11 Plus Black Midi Tower Window Gaming Case

Samsung SH-S222BB/BEBE DVD Writer

630W be quiet! PURE POWER L7 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply

VTX3D Radeon HD 7850 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card


I'm planning on buying another hd 7850 (except get the sapphire version which runs cooler) and 8 GB more of the same ram, do you think this is the best way for me to spend the £200 upgrade.

  1. get a SSD it will help ALOT id say wait off a little on the ram and get a ssd it will help much more than 8 more gigs of ram
  2. Agreeing with above. Unless you run some unusual programs you are not using more than 4gb of the ram you have.

    SSD would speed up boot times and program launch times.

    Edit: What resolution are you gaming at? You really need a higher resolution to fully take advantage of 7850s in crossfire.
