Firstly, I'd ask "Do you need to upgrade?"

Secondly, I'd suggest GPU upgrades more frequently than any other component. SLI the 670?

Let me rephrase, Is there anything I can add to my PC to make it better?

A sound card, a nice head set, maybe a nice mouse and keyboard. Or a good set of speakers.

If your rig is powerful enough as it is and you are just looking to spend some money, there are always little things you can get that help a lot.
