My System Specs


Some people will say spend it all I am sure, but personally (being a bang for buck kinda guy) I think that at your resolution if you swap the GPU to a gtx 660 (non-Ti) for around $220+tax and leave everything else as is you would be very happy. It is a great 1920x1080 GPU without breaking the bank, is substantially faster than your 550Ti, and will run fine on your power supply. You could go to a faster GPU, but you are getting diminishing returns at that point.

Gigabyte GTX 660 for $215 Here...PM to memoryexpress and get it for $211.40

If that is not a big enough upgrade for you, then consider going to a gtx 670. It will eat up all your budget, but is a noticable amount faster than the 660. Personally I wouldn't put the money towards a new motherboard at this point.
