What upgrades should I get for my current rig?

I kinda don't want to spend way to much on upgrading it as I'll be building a new one fairly soon, but I just want to get this one upgraded fully first.

well looking at your rig there isnt anything that stands out as needing to be upgraded....

you could sell the 8400 & grab a quad, but if you cant OC the quad to the same as the dual, you'll actually loose performance..

or you could sell the GTX260 & grab a 295 or 275, but your PSU may need addressing then.

so.....i'd move onto the next rig mate, that one is a ''finished product''
