Time to upgrade?

RE: Time to upgrade?
4GB is a no brainier. For the GPU, what monitor are you running with? You're probably fine for a while if it's 1080p or less.

If you do upgrade, you probably don't want to spend $250 on a card that will only get you a 10% performance boost. I'd compare it with modern cards here: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/767?vs=829 . I'd say the GTX 770 or a well-cooled R9 290 would be the lowest to consider. Anything less, and you're probably in the not-worth-it range.

I'd personally just wait for the new series of cards launching at the end of the year. On the NVIDIA side, they're supposed to be able to offer the same performance as the 700 series, with 1/2 the power. That would imply that they could make cards with the same power but double the performance. I'm sure the Red Team will have a good counter by then as well.
GPU: NVIDIA Titan X, CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz OC'd @ 4.5GHz, Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4, Mem: 2x Corsair Dominator 2133MHz 8GB, SSD: Samsung 850 EVO, Case: Corsair Carbide 500R, PSU: Corsair TX850M, CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14, Case Fans: 4x Cooler Master Excalibur 120mm PWM, Monitors: 3x ViewSonic VX2270SMH-LED in NVIDIA Surround
