Your hardware is still very capable.
The video card is your weakest component, followed by your hard drive.
If that were my system I would install a 256GB or larger boot drive for most used programs and a new install of windows. It will greatly reduce boot times and be snappier opening and closing programs loaded on it.
Your video card is most important for gaming. A 1060 6GB or better is needed for solid 1080p gaming.

You can upgrade to i7. Also you have only 4 gb of ram, when now recommended 16 gb. If you upgrade cpu, then gtx 1070 level card, should increase performance a lot. Ssd also makes system more comfortable to use. If you have crapy psu, also upgrade it.
 
I think they have 4x4GB RAM according to their posted specs.

I'd skip the 1070 (as much as I like my 1070 ti) and go straight to the 1660 (Super/ti) if going with a graphics card upgrade (assuming within budget). Pascal cards getting fewer as time goes on, and PCPartPicker not showing many available new. Slightly different consideration if going with used, of course. Be aware of the PSU requirements for a new graphics card too.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I agree with the others here, is up to you to know if the system is power/responsiveness is enough for your needs.
Since I believe you have 4x 4GB of RAM (16 GB total), you could upgrade your GPU and your CPU.
But before you do that you need to share with us the brand and model of your power supply (PSU).

If your PSU is from a well known maker and have good ratings, then you could try to upgrade to something like a GTX 1060 6GB, Radeon 580/590 8GB, GTX 1660, GTX 1660 Super, or the Radeon 5700.

Thing is, at this point your CPU will start to struggle and will have a hard time to keep it with your new GPU, specially in cpu demanding games, so thats why a new cpu could also bring new life to your system, and a core i7 4770 or similar is one of the best options to consider. You should avoid the K parts since second hand ones use to go for the same price of a new cpu+mobo+ram.

You could also go the Xeon way.

But in short you need a CPU that have 4 cores and HT enable (so it can handle 8 threads).

Heres the list of all supported CPU of your mobo: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/H97PRO_GAMER/HelpDesk_CPU/

Lag on loading ? Or playing? If loading try adding ssd drive..huge jump in performance. Internet speeds play huge if online game. Ram is fine. Same with video card. What video rez are you at?
