How much to upgrade?
I built the following around July of 2013. It still runs everything I use it for (BF4, Diablo 3, Vermintide, Terraria, Witcher 3) capably. I am sort of getting the itch to upgrade though. I am just not sure what area to target. Like would getting another 1150 socket CPU be a smart move with new stuff around the corner? With that I would need a new motherboard and if I do that then maybe a new case as well... I also have an h80i that won't fit in my current case (I have tried about 700 different configurations). I realize that money is an obvious consideration, but if someone suggests that all of my parts are junk then maybe I mow a few more yards and come up with $500, or if the consensus is that everything is decent except for the CPU I could sell plasma and splurge on a really nice i5 or i7. I guess the hope is that with a reevaluation of how this build would function in the near future I will better be able to assess how much funding to come up with. Sorry that the links got edited out, I was copying from multiple sources and it looked really confusing. I can add if needed.
