  1. Upgrading to a Coffee Lake platform will mean a whole new motherboard, CPU, RAM, and possibly O.S.
    Obviously upgrading to just the GTX 1060 would be the most cost-effective way to improve gaming if that is your goal. And possibly find a used i5-2500K if your system allows for OC'ing.

    The new platform would be the best way to go for the future, tho.

    Seeing how current-gen GPUs are a couple years old, I'd go with a new CPU/Mobo/RAM and get a GPU later in the year when next-gen is out.
