Opinions on upgrading.

Hello,

I am planning on upgrading my cpu as well as my gpu and I am unsure about what I should look into. I know that I want an i5 processor and an 8Gb video card. Here is my current build http://pcpartpicker.com/user/N3_/saved/6ZcYJx.

My budget is around $500 for both.

Thanks in advance.

Before changing the CPU, upgrade your MOBO to the latest BIOS version!
