Here is a link of my current computer http://pcpartpicker.com/list/HjFWtJ

Looking to upgrade could spend up to $1000 to upgrade it. What should I upgrade and what has good deals coming up for the holiday year. Asking because not really sure what to upgrade at this point got the computer a little over a year ago.
 
Get something like an ASUS or EVGA GTX1070 or GTX1080 and a 600w+ PSU from EVGA (Ignore the B1, G1 and P1 units) or Seasonic.

Going to 16gb RAM is a good idea, g.Skill Ripjaws are really dependable and I would get a 16gb kit and sell the current one, mixing RAM can get messy.

A SSD is a good idea, Samsung makes some of the best SSD's, but some others like ADATA make some decent units.

You could also get a nice CPU cooler and overclock (if desired), CoolerMaster and Cryorig makes some really great air coolers.
