  1. You're about at the top of the food chain (so to speak) for CPUs on that board. And the 860k isn't going to keep up with really fast gfx cards w/o seeing some bottleneck. You might upgrade to a GTX 1060 or RX-480 for some nice improvement, but you will need a good quality 500W PSU with a decent +12V rail to do so.

    Get a solid state hard drive, better keyboard/mouse/monitor. Your hardware does not really have anywhere to go without a full system upgrade. I would not spend money on anything unless you are planning to move to a newer platform. I'd get a nice IPS monitor if you don't have one already and just keep playing at the same settings. Same thing for mouse and keyboard, if you have something basic business quality, get a better input setup.

  3. If that is one stick of ram, you could increase performance with two sticks of ram so it would work in dual channel mode.
