If I were going to upgrade that machine I would upgrade the GPU to something like a GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 or in that neighborhood. I would also up the RAM to 16 GB......and if the PSU needed upgrading (you don't list it) I would upgrade that too.

by QHD im guessing you mean 1440p? the CPU i suppose could hang on in there for a year or two, but in order to play games in QHD i would suggest a RX 590 MINIMUM but to play comfortably, i would suggest a Rx5700 or a RTX 2060/70

So it all comes down to new gpu and new ram. Quite surprised that i don't need to change my processor yet lol. I don't need to spend $1000 to build from scratch, that's good news.
