Upgrade HP Envy for Gaming

I was given the HP Envy as a gift.

Windows 8 64bit
10GB RAM
1 TB HDD
6 Core FX Series 6120 [Mixed reviews. Most dislike it?]

I'm trying to turn it into a decent gaming rig. It's a smaller mid-size ATX case with a microATX mobo. So far I've ordered:

Upgraded CPU Cooler(Titan TTC-NK54TZ 80mm):

I just would like to see what you guys suggest doing next, and if you think it'd be worth upgrading the motherboard.

Thanks!

  1. I would say do what you are doing, upgrade graphics, power supply. If you want to upgrade the board, I think I'd find a new case also. Just seems like with PC's, manufacturers tend to put cheaper parts in them. Maybe I'm wrong, but I've seen too many new PC's failing a year or two out. Upgrading power supply is definitely a good idea in my opinion though.
