Your PC looks pretty good. I would get a 120 GB SSD, enough for Windows and some games. SSDs speed up install times, map loading times, and also help load textures and meshes quicker (ever seen grass grow before your eyes on BF3? I do, even with a 7870. It's my cruddy mechanical hard drive).

Wait until the Radeon 8000s to upgrade your GPU. 6850 is good for now. It can handle all current games on respectable settings.
