I have a 500-550$ budget for upgrades on whatever i need and will obvioulsy my gpu is #1 priority but im having trouble deciding between some of the mid-higher end cards specifaclly the 7950, 660ti, and 670. I only run one monitor at 1080x1920 so i dont really think spending more money on a better card where i will never notice the benifits is worth it. Other than that though i really dont konw if there is anything else i should look at upgrading or putting into my build. Any advice or opinons would be appreciated.

Current Specs:
MSI 870s-g46 mobo
8gb ddr3 1333 gskill ram
AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE 3.7 ghz (OC)
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
550Watt Antec PSU
XFX Radeon 6850 (OC)
Windows 7 64bit
1 TB hdd

Motherboard and processor is the best option of upgrading anything.

Get a new ivy bridge and sufficient motherboard.

i think you right, for the stock clock your PSU would be good and i think that u can oc it but not that much with your PSU, but i highly recommend it
