Your rig is just fine. Any "upgrade" except perhaps bigger SSD or more memory would be just waste of money.

The cpu you picked is all most $400 with tax, video card is like $500 with tax yet your saying your total limit for the new computer is $500 O_o

Confused, you do know how to do basic math right ?

 

Next from looking at the pc case you picked were do you put your DVD drives or do you not want any ?

Looks like the lamest case of all time from what i can see.

 

If you want a $500 computer i could recomend a feu things but the computer you have listed is worth like $1500.

Why do you want to upgrade? Is your computer slow while in a program or are there other issues?

Wait for HBM2 graphic cards then.

 

And in case your monitor is only 60Hz, then upgrading is not worth it.

Can you please tell us your exact monitor? If it is a 60 Hz monitor and you already play at 60 FPS then there's no point in getting it any higher due to the fact that the monitor won't show anything above 60 FPS.

One upgrade we could make is your monitor perhaps.
