For what purpose? The 3770K is already very good.

I don't see any reason to drop that much on that CPU when the 3770K is already very capable for those tasks. What's your current GPU?

I'd look at upgrading that. For your budget a 780/ti or a R9 290X would probably fit, you may as well go top end.
