If I were to upgrade today, that is what I'd get to upgrade, save the video card, which I'd get a 570....that too should run the game at max. It sucks that I can't upgrade now, but then again, since I have to wait for tax time next year, there will be faster components now, but in the end....nice. At any rate, your system is a rocket so I'd have no worries!
One thing I do want to upgrade is my storage, I want to get a solid state drive. I have a mate who has one and even though his PC is lower spec'd than mine it feels snappier!! I was amazed at how quick it made his system. I am wanting a 240gb SSD but I can only afford a 120gb model, so I am waiting for the prices of the 240gb SSD's to drop in price. Oh tax time, yeah in NZ the tax system is slighty different and well I never get money back if I do its not much. Maybe you could throw a system on your credit card? thats what i did and paid the card back before the interest kicked in.
