If you're running the games you like to play ok I'd just keep rolling with that myself.

Maybe add a ssd, or a gold rated (and lower watt, 700w is boffo overkill for a locked i5 & 970) psu?

A nice case, ~$100+, if you don't have one already?

Will do! Any specific gig or just any?

Crucial MX300 is a great value drive with higher than average capacity, gets basically the same real world loading speeds too.
