Next up I'd be looking at a big one. First things first, PSU. Get something decent in there.

Then motherboard, CPU, RAM. If your current stuff is still good you may be able to pass it on second hand for a few $$$ to recover financially.

Also... HOW GOOD IS THE LOGITECH MX REVOLUTION???!!! Yes I am yelling, I love it! :D

So are you savage24x Enterprises? Did you make it yourself?

i see no need for an upgrade for the PSU. Ultra is one of the best brands for PSUs out there and this one got a five star rating. I am a hardcore pc gamer and i play Crysis and games like that. Powers the GPU and MoBo and everything else perfectly. I do need a motherboard upgrade and CPU upgrade very very very very badly. Recommendations?

and yes i made my computer myself, so i came up with a random name lol

As you Know, there is always something that promises to be better, much better than the gear you have, and just over the horizon. So if you don't take the plunge!!!

At the moment, Intel Socket 1155 Sandy Bridge is the way to go.\\

Have a browse through this similar post,

Work out exactly what you could use from your existing hardware.

Have you a realistic budget?

What do you think?

Ultra is a long way off being anything close to the best. I have found all of their products rather poor to be honest and many reviews on the web will show you this.

But yeah, after PSU, definitely look into Sandy Bridge (the revised motherboards)
