How much are you willing to spend?

Because right off the bat I can see you could use a system overhaul.

I'd start with a Core i5-4670K, a $120-$150 Z87 motherboard, and 4GBx2 of DDR3-1600 RAM. You should be able to get all of that for about $400-$450. I'd hold off on a video card because what you have now is still pretty good and if you can wait a year, the new stuff is supposed to come out.
