    Default Upgrading parts help?

    Case: NZXT Phantom 410

    Motherboard: M5A97 R2.0

    CPU: AMD FX(tm)-6350 Six-Core Processor

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750

    PSU: Ultra LSP650

    I have an SSD and a 1TB storage drive.

    Ram: http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-HX321...in%3A677427011

    In other words i have 8GBs of ram.

    Alright so i would like to upgrade something in my pc but im not sure what to upgrade? Any tips on what and why to upgrade a part and if i upgrade a part will i need to upgrade my PSU?
    Would an after market CPU cooler help? I dont overclock btw. I Have about 4 fans including my cpu cooler in my pc so would buying some more fans help?

    Upgrade your GPU.

    Your PSU is fine. Your CPU is now probably fine too, but in the future you can buy a cooler and overclock it if it starts to bottleneck.

    The GPU you selected is very good, but it requires an 8 and a 6 pin PCIe connector, while your PSU only has two 6 pin ones. I think you can still power it by converting molex to 8 pin. It would probably work, but since it looks a bit tacky, i recommend spending another >100$ on a PSU from a reputable brand that is rated for 80%+ efficiency.

    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171094

    GPU: http://www.amazon.com/GeForce-Overcl...ct_top?ie=UTF8

    Alright thinking of getting this PSU and this GPU when i get enough money. What do you think? will there be a bottleneck when i get everything in my pc? and will everything be compatible+fit inside the case?

    PSU: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-po...ly-220g20750xr (Fully Modular FTW)

    GPU: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-vi...rd-04gp43975kr (Slightly faster base overclock and better for multi-monitor)
    OR
    GPU: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-vi...tx970dc2oc4gd5 (Better cooler and overclock potential)

    If you buy a GTX 970, 980, or 980ti right now you get either Syndicate or Rainbow 6 Siege free and EVGA card come with a free backplate.
