I recently completed a build/upgrade (mostly new but several scavenged components from my old rig) to better enable me to perform statistical tests on very large databases from home (using 'R' thus 16Gb of RAM), but have now gotten the build bug again and am looking for input on what I should be changing next. I should point out that I use this sytem for gaming also; primarily for games of the RPG type, Dragon Age series, Mass Effect trilogy, Skyrim, Deus Ex, Fallout, and other such titles as they emerge.
I like to do things on a budget where I can, so without going nuts price-wise, what would you guys recommend that I change out next? I can afford to spend maybe a couple of hundred dollars every few months. I was thinking both the PSU and GPU could use changing in the next six months, but just not sure what to go for. I would also like recommendations for some decent but not too costly speakers, headphones and keyboard and mouse combos (wired please, I hate wireless battery powered stuff).
