Beast of a Mac - or is it?


Well, so for the longest time I thought I had a beast of a Mac, but now I'm running into "problems".

First my specs:

- iMac i5 27" 2.8 GHz (OSX 10.8.4)

- 32 GB 1333 MHz DDR3

- SSD 265GB

- 1TB HD 7200rpm

- ATI Radeon HD 5750 1024 MB

I know that this machine is a few years old (esp. the graphics card), but I've been trying to update it whenever I had the money.

My question, though, which of the components I can update to increase my productivity with PS/AE CS6, FCPX and Logic Pro?

I looked on a few websites, but they ended up confusing me even more. Since the warranty is long void, I don't mind opening up the computer myself.

Thanks for your help,
