What is your budget?
In what way is your current setup not doing the job?
If your cpu is running too hot, look for a better case or cooler.
If your ssd is filling up, get a larger ssd.
If you are playing fast action games, consider a graphics upgrade.
If you simply have money to spend, consider a larger higher resolution monitor.

That's the thing, I only have enough money leftover from my paycheck per year for one (assuming they are all roughly $100, $130) my SSD has 60 gigs left. While gaming my CPU reaches 80c. My GPU is fine paired with my CPU for mid settings 144 fps on most games.

I phrased that bad, I don't get one paycheck per year just every 2 weeks like normal but after roughly a year, after covering basic needs and bills I have that much left over.

Seems like you have the "itch"
Resist it.
Things happen.
Save the money until you have an actual need for it.
You would hate to have a psu fail or run out of ssd space only to find that you had spent prematurely.
