What are my options?

Hi guys,

My current configuration is:

CPU: i5 4690K Motherboard: MSI Z79 Guard PRO RAM: Gskill 8GB SSD: 970 Evo plus 500 GB HDD: 4 TB WD Black PSU: Corsair VS 550 Monitor: BenQ 2250-B, Highest resolution 1920X1080 (60Hz)

I am planning to play lastest games. But most of the time, I will be using the computer for editing (video, pictures) and for virtualization (VMware and Virtualbox). Also, for website development.

My current budget is around $ 600. So, please help me out on how to upgrade my current desktop. Do I buy more powerful PSU? or Do I buy a new graphic card? or Do I buy a new monitor? or Upgrade CPU, motherboard and RAM? If so, please suggest me a budget/new/more powerful CPU, motherboard and RAM combo. Or any other suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance! I am waiting for your suggestion.

Look at what games you want to play they will tel you on the box what specs are required. but for video editing you will need more RAM
