What are the two major complaints...you have about your current system?  That should point you in the direction in which you wish to proceed with spending money :).

What monitor? Assuming FullHD@60 Hz, GPU is still fine. And currently there's huge shortage of new generation GPU's and so prices are high.

If you find cheap i7-3770K (and I said cheap, at most 50 bucks or so), go for it.

Intel's development over last 4 years on CPU's is sporadic so I suggest you wait if Zen brings something on table next year.

60Hz monitor so I see no big reason to upgrade GPU right now. Wait for lower prices and upgrade monitor and GPU same time.
