They best way would probably be to upgrade your cpu and mobo to 9th gen. Otherwise there aren't really any big upgrades other than your ram

Easiest way to boost fps is to overclock your 7600K(make sure to install some fresh thermal paste before) and to swap your ram memory to 3200mhz sticks of any brand really. Cheers.

I don't think there are big gains to be had. If you are playing some of the new games that run a ton of threads, you might benefit from a processor upgrade to 6 or 8 cores, and I suppose you'd have to change the mobo as well. Faster ram would make a small incremental improvement. How fast are your monitors? What sort of fps are you getting now in games that you would like to improve?
