Depends on your needs. If it's for gaming, buy a second GPU for crossfire or swap R9 for 2x970GTX.

Used mostly for gaming. I never thought about the 2nd GPU. Think the PSU is sufficient for 2 GPU?

Is it 600W? It should be enough for some cards, but you'll need to check, depending which one you buy. There are some numbers here http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages...-review,4.html
