Default Upgrading, need some advice!

Hello all, this is my first post on these forums so bear with me =D

Last christmas I bought myself this computer:
Newegg.com - CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1030 Intel Core i5 750(2.66GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

So far it has been wonderful, and I have not had any major problems running games like WoW and Starcraft 2 on high settings. I recently came into some money and I am looking to upgrade this setup. My budget is around $500 and I don't want to spend anymore than $750. I would hate to spend a lot of money on minimal or unnecessary upgrades so I decided to consult a few computer hardware forums to get some pointers.

Any help is appreciated and I thank you for your time!
