I'll say getting ssd is the best option because it increases start up, shut down time significantly on almost any platform
or you could upgrade ram or cooling if you need to

you don't really need to upgrade graphic card

gtx 650ti is just fast as 6850

if you really need more graphic power : you have two options
-sell 6850 and get better card (if your power supply and case allows)
-get another 6850 and crossfire (might have crossfire driver/micro-stuttering issues and it will take up 4 slots and need better power supply)

Save up for a 660Ti or better if you want to see an improvement in FPS.

Going from a 6850 to a 650Ti boost is a waste of time.
