What PSU do you have? Really nothing you need, for your usage.

Why do you want to upgrade anything?  The least thing you could do is get Haswell CPU's, but with that, you need a new board and OS install.

I was considering upgrading to a GTX 760 and maybe adding a second SSD for paging and scratch disk or upgrading to 16GB of RAM but there was no justification to it

I agree with you?

 

Maybe you want a new case?

You really don't need to do anything for what you do with your system... maybe the only thing that might make a small difference is getting 16GB of RAM. I did notice a nice speed increase going from 8GB to 24GB. Windows takes advantage of the extra memory, currently using 8.5GB of RAM.  I also use a RAM Disk and move my tempory folder and browser cache to it.
