Why do you want to upgrade? Is it for gaming, general performance boost, etc? If gaming, then upgrade your graphics card. If general performance, maybe an SSD.

Edit: I meant to say that your system doesn't look like it needs any real upgrade if you're happy with it. Maybe a bigger monitor?

Yea its for gaming. Its more like I have about $150 in gift cards to this computer shop so I'm just going to put the rest of that money to get something computer related from there. I completely forgot to mention probably due to it being my newest upgrade but I have a 120gb Kingston 3k HyperX SSD. D'you really think I should upgrade the graphics card? I thought maybe the new monitor but I might get that for Christmas so if you could I'd like a few options. Maybe an H100i? to boost up my overclock. Maybe a new keyboard? Just bouncing ideas off aha. What d'you think?

If it's for gaming and you really want to spend money on something, then the graphics card. My opinion is to sell your HD 7850 if you can then buy a HD 7870 or GTX 660 and a new monitor with it. It's better than boosting your overclock with an unnecessary water cooler. If there's any money left, I personally would rather go with a new keyboard.

Edit: Overclocking your graphics card will yield more performance in games than squeezing a few more MHz out of your CPU with that water cooler. Your air cooler is sufficient for this task.
