How to make a noticeable hardware/software performance upgrade

Level 8
So here are are my specs:
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z
16 GB of 2133 Mhz 11-11-11-28 1.5v Team Group XTREEM
AMD FX-8350
EVGA GTX 660ti FTW P/N: 03G-P4-3668-KR
Corsair H-80i Liquid Cooler
EVGA Supernova NEX750G Power Supply
Area Red Division 4 Port PCI4X SATA RAID Card
ASMEDIA Controller WD Black 1TB (Programs, Games, and Downloads Drive)
ASMEDIA Controller WD Green 1TB (Movies, Music, and Pictures Drive)
ARD RAID Card WD Blue 500GB (Hyper-Duo boosted Scratch Disk for Photoshop)
ARD RAID CARD Samsung 840 EVO 128GB (Hyper-Duo boosted Scratch Disk for Photoshop)
AMD Controller 4x Samsung 850 Pros 128GB in RAID 0 (WIN7 OS Drive)
SATA Assignments are as follows:
AMD Controller:
P1-P4 RAID 0 Samsung 850 Pros 128GB
P5-P6 ODD Drives
ASMEDIA Controller:
P1 WD Black 1TB
P2 WD Green 1TB
ARD Card:
CH1 Samsung 840 EVO 128GB
CH2 WD Blue 500GB

If you want me to attach benchmarks for the new 850 Pros I just got I would be glad to do so!!

I know there are way better graphics cards out there. I'm considering a 780ti right now but since I don't have as much time as I would like to research all the newest things out there I figured I'd ask for some assistance. Nothing is overclocked right now I just have the liquid cooler because it is so hot here in Japan and the AC doesn't always work in the Army barracks I live in. Any advice on speeding up my Windows 7 machine (not including getting rid of Windows...) would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you all for your time!!!
