Should I upgrade my pc or buy new rig?

Hi Guys, any help you can give me is very much appreciated!

Currently playing Dota, nba2k, witcher 3, but it would be nice to play a few of the current titles coming out without having to buy new build. Should I just upgrade my GPX card or just build new PC?
