Default Preparing for the latest games!

Hi all, first post.

I built a desktop Feb 2013 as follows:

- i5 3570K (running as stock) - 3.4GHz
- Powercolor PCS+ HD7870 Vortex II Edition, 2GB - 1150MHz
- 8GB Gskill 1600MHz
- Z77 Pro3 Mobo
- Corsair 550W
- 120GB Samsung 840 SSD
- 1 TB Seagate 7200rpm
- CM Hyper 212 EVO

Any recommendations for upgrades? I'm not a hardcore gamer, probably 2-5 hours a week but I like to run 60fps+ on max settings. Monitor is my TV 40inch Samsung LED 1920x1080p.

I'm preparing for BF4, GTA5 etc...

Budget is 500 for upgrades. I'd prefer not to spend any money of course

Your rig is fine. If you're itching to upgrade then get a GTX770.
