So these are the parts that my PC runs on.  NOTE:  I have a 700w power supply, just don't know which one, hope it doesn't matter :).  But anyway, Is there anything on my PC that looks like it needs an upgrade, like a better processor, RAM, mobo.  My PC runs smooth, but I was wondering if there is a main component that will make some of my games run faster, they run smooth anyway, just want a better experience.  I already upgraded the graphics card.  Thanks in advance!

The only real upgrade would be a Solid State Drive (SSD).

There are a few games that require at least a AMD 8 core. Upgrading to one of their 95watt 8 cores would open up a few more games to play (your board can't use the 125 watt ones). Like the FX-8370e  (200$) or the FX-8320e (135$) for instance. 


That's about it. Wouldn't really be worth it though for those few games. Like Kilroy said, an SSD is the only thing left to get slightly increased performance in open world games.

99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.
