I'd suggest overclocking your CPU first as well. Thankfully yours can easily reach 4GHz.

But if you feel the need to upgrade, you should go with the i5-4690. It's compatible with your motherboard's socket and powerful to last for many years to come.

As for the graphics card, an RX 480 or GTX 1070 would be a massive upgrade from that 750ti. At least 3-4x the performance if not more. Both should be widely available for a decent price by the time you decide to upgrade.

Lastly, it couldn't hurt to get an SSD as well. I had no idea what I was missing out on until I bought one. Using a PC without an SSD feels like working on an Apple ][ now.

This is a sig of some nature.
