I suppose it depends on your goal. For 1920x1080 you have a decent setup already.

You can certainly handle a little more GPU. RTX2060 perhaps. But then to really take advantage you might want to look at 1920x1080 high refresh rate displays or 1440p displays.

There are i7-4770 or i7-4790 you could get and drop right in for better performance in games like the newer Battlefields

Beyond that, you would need to replace pretty much everything to see an improvement. Either a new Ryzen chip which is roughly as fast as your Haswell chips, but cheaper, and with many more cores. Or a high end Intel setup with 8 cores at extreme expense.

as the guy before me said, it depends on your goal,

if it's only for gaming, we have similar specs and it runs 1080p just fine
you could get a better monitor though, running 144Hz would be an eye candy for you

if it's me, I would buy a monitor instead upgrading the CPU or GPU
