    Default Thinking about upgrding recently.. do I need to yet?

    Current setup:

    Gigabyte X58A-UD3R (1366)
    i7 920 (DO) @3.8Ghz
    Corsair XMS3 (6GB)
    GTX 670 Windforce 3x (2Gb)
    XFX PRO750
    Iiyama Prolite E2607WSD 26"

    Should I bother atm & if so what would you guys recommend I upgrade? (make/model recommendations would be helpful)
    Primary use is gaming, closely followed by video/photo editing & music production.

    I've potentially got around 400-500 to play with

    Thanks.

    I am a newbie to these forums, but my first question would be
    "Does the computer do what you want it to do properly and quickly right now?"
    If the answer is yes, then why upgrade?
    If the answer is no, then what is failing? Frame rates in games? Abnormally long times rendering photo/video changing? Something else entirely? All the above?

    Maybe I am too conservative, but upgrading for the sake of upgrading can be a waste of money, especially if what you have works just fine.
