    grab a nice big 256 SSD and install windows and photoshop on it. rest is good. Best upgrade for your PC. Samsung 830

    This is your CPU

    Your PC should be fine with what you specify. Double your RAM though, video editing, 3D and photoshop tear through RAM space. You'll want to keep the graphics card for OGL in 3D.

    An ideal upgrade would be to a hyper threaded 1155 quad core or a six core 2011 CPU.

    I wouldn't bother. Next on the upgrade list for the applications you've listed is the CPU.
