Not much.

That link gives us a great starting base for PCs that folk have built and play games on. I've come to the following after many years. If folk want to put together a new combination then they accept they might have to return a board or such and pay the toll for trying new combinations. When folk just need a good to great gamer, we build one from that list.

Sure we may step up the SSD, GPU, CPU a notch but we use these as baseline designs.

Do you want to upgrade but keep your existing machine?
If so look to the video card.
A r9 390 would be nice but that would need a psu upgrade also.

Are you comfortable with making a new build?
If so the end-all at the link above seems to fit your budget.
You might be able to reuse some of the old parts case/ram/hdd's and lower the price.
