The 3770 is a fine enough cpu for the rx570 you're rocking. Just stick with your current pc and get an ssd.

An upgrade would be pretty much a new pc in the form of a motherboard, different cpu, ddr4 ram and a standard atx case since the hp front panel probably isn't compatible with standard motherboards.

If you ever have the $350+ for a full upgrade, you can just transfer over the ssd later on.
