Hello everyone, built my computer back in august and with the holidays coming around I have a chance to upgrade my PC. Any idea what should be upgraded first??

Limit will be $300 and can be range from monitor to GPU.

I do want to keep an eye out for SSD this coming black friday and see if there's anything worth buying for less than $90.

Any ideas are appreciated!

SSD seems to be the only real upgrade to do :)
