For ram, try match the model number if you can.. seen some flaky behavior by just getting the same speed / brand.

SSD will make your machine much more responsive.. But TBH if I were you I'd make it livable for the next 2 yrs or so then replace the lot.. your shout if you want one.. you will want something thats good without trim and on sata2 though.. Crucial m4 springs to mind you may want to ask in the storage section specifically cos I don't really keep up-to-date on SSD's.

GPU, depending on how much of a rush your in to buy and how long it takes to get new products in I would try and wait for some of the lower end 7xx series cards.. 760ti (hopefully a tweaked 670) would be what I'd look at for you or maybe even a 760(660ti) when they are released..
If that store is like my local one they are reasonable on launch prices but then they tend not to drop. If this is the case you want to buy as soon as something is released.

See above for PSU.. that said, don't be afraid to look at reviews and see if you can get a better deal. I only had a quick look and I havn't read up on the newer corsair vs etc ones and never even looked at the coolermasters.
Google is your friend. Model and review should be all you need to search
(skip anything that looks like user review, though these will tell you more about reliability whereas pro ones will tell you quality)

I wouldn't bother upgrading your whole system as your budget will limit you so that you won't get very much benefit..
I would get the PSU, GPU and RAM and leave it at that for 2 years then do a full build at that point, selling your current rig or gifting it to a family member etc at that point.

Ok.. if you were to upgrade you'd want at least an i5 3570k / 4670k.. z77 / z87 motherboard.. price those and see how much budget you'll have left.
The GPU bump now will hold you for 2 years whereas if you try build a full rig you'll probably have the same overall performance as a slightly bigger GPU in your current one.


When you say you managed to get ram forxxxx.. is it the same as your current ram? remember matching ram can be hit and miss some times.
Also if your going to go ahead with a new build you'll want DDR3 not 2.. you won't be using anything from your old build except maybe the case and HDD.

Should be fine.

165W as reported here Intel Haswell i7-4770K & i5-4670K Review
Thats from the wall, with full cpu load. newer GPU's are pretty easy on the power too

It will be getting close to the PSU's rated max BUT you can bump to a decent 600 - 650W if you feel you need the extra head room

7950 has the best OC potential...although i would argue that at stock clocks the 760 will perform marginally better.

YMMV, but I got 1280Mhz out of my 760 GC vs. 980Mhz reference, so I'd say I'm quite pleased with the overclock potential on this GPU. It's a huge improvement over that of the 660 for sure, right about on par with that of the 660Ti/670.
