Turning to you guys again as I have successfully for the past 9 years.

Looking for advice on upgrade path from the following hardware: could $500 get me anywhere from here? What can I keep and what needs to go?

CASE:
Cooler Master HAF 922

Motherboard:
GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD

Graphics Card:

Power Supply:
CORSAIR TX750

CPU:
AMD FX-6300 Black Edition

bassically everything.Also im confused do you have 2 gpus or just R9 290 or HD 6850.
First of all heres the cpu,ram,mobo upgrade:https://pcpartpicker.com/list/GBjqn7
later on you can upgrade to something like gtx 1600 series cards or RX 500 series cards.Also new gpus are coming soon,so keep that in mind.Mean while you can keep using your r9 290/HD 6850 or whatever gpu you have/
 
So what is the intended use of this computer? Everyday/Gaming/Office/Editing? Also, where do you live?

I'm also confused about your graphics config. Do you own 2 GPUs?

I also don't see any storage units. Was this intended?
