Hey guys, so just built my first pc. Everything went fine except for the power supply being faulty, so just waiting on its replacement.

In the mean time, what parts are usually the first to be upgraded in a gaming pc?
Intel i5-4440
ASRock b85 anniversary
Msi GeForce gtx 960 oc edition
G.skills ripjaws x (4gbx2)
Wd blue 1tb hdd
120gb ssd later this week

This is just out of curiosity, as everything I have is brand new!

First i'd upgrade is Ram, SSD, then Graphics since you have a pretty standardish good graphic for now. Motherboard should always be your last upgrade.

Okay cool. Got a pretty good idea from looking around for what to get for a build, but no idea as for an upgrade path.

Unless you're rendering or something ram intensive, you don't need more than 8 gb ram...

CPU is ok for time being, i'd wait for broadwell/skylake.

960 is a good mid end card. Unless you want more fps, I would wait with upgrades for near future.
