I don't see why need to upgrade as that looks to be a good system.

It is a good system, but what would be good upgrades for it? If it is really really not necessary to upgrade it I will invest my money elsewhere. (prices are not a problem)

I am planning on building a custom PC when I am able to sell this one to one of my Cousins (they hardly have enough money for a decent computer atm) so until then I just want to upgrade

I don't think you would notice a significant difference in your computer being faster, better, or quieter if you did any upgrades. I don't think it's worth the money for what you would be getting. Save your money until you sell your old computer, then build a custom pc.

The only things I see that may be worth upgrading are the case and the motherboard. And possibly the power supply...
