    I don't really see the need for upgrading motherboard. I would rather upgrade the graphics card . What is your budget? I would suggest a R9 270x or GTX 760, or a GTX 770 if you want to spend some more. You probably need to upgrade the psu as well to a decent 550/600 watt unit.

    Or this one if you want an excellent psu:
