  1. Get a new graphics card. The 1070 comes out next month and that is what I would recommend but it depends on your budget. If you can get a 1080, go for it.

    The fx 4300 will definitely bottleneck a 1070 or 1080. You should probably upgrade your cpu + mobo first to get the most potential out of your next gpu.

    Depends on your cpu, whether you choose to go intel (recommended) or stay with amd.

    That motherboard is a micro ATX. Is that the type your current pc has or is it a regular ATX?

    Other than that, I'd choose something like this:
    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

    CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor ($294.99 @ SuperBiiz)
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($24.89 @ OutletPC)
    Motherboard: ASRock H97 Anniversary ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($61.98 @ Newegg)
    Total: $381.86
    Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

    you get to keep your DDR3 ram. The 4790 is just as good as the 4790k except it's not unlocked. If you wish to overclock you can get the 4790k but you will need a better motherboard. But it's all up to you.
