There isn't really and upgrade for your cpu that will make much of a difference. The best you could do is upgrade to 16GB of RAM and upgrade your GPU

For GPU it all depends on your budget. What would your budget be?

I would recommend the EVGA gtx 970 for £280. That should be a significant upgrade from what you have.
