If you already own it - what psu do you have. GPU is best upgrade path if your psu will manage.

As you didn't get it yet, my opinion is that you really should rather build one yourself. It is really, really easy to do, you can learn everything about it by watching some Youtube videos for 20-30 minutes. This way, you can get a much better build all around, and you won't need to add a new GPU on top of it. Here's what my recommended build would be :

I built my PC a week ago. It took me about an hour to build it, install the OS and my main programs. It was my second build, and it actually took me more time than my first build, which took me about 15 minutes. It took me longer only because the case that I bought didn't really have a good organisation, and some parts in it were installed on reverse, on purpose, at the factory. Anyway... the case that I proposed you won't have this problem, so it will be very easy and quick to build.
