Advice on upgrade/rebuild on ~5yr olg gaming PC

I built this gaming PC about 5+ years ago and since then have installed an SSD and replaced the GPU. Recently the computer is getting buggy and the performance is becoming an issue so I'm keen on a rebuild.
I was hoping to get advice on what if any components I should keep (if any), and what upgrades will give the most bang for the buck.
Budget ~$800usd

Current build:
CPU: i5-2500k
GPU: GTX 960 4GB
Motherboard: asustek p8z68-v pro
RAM: 2x DD3 4gb 1600mhz
SSD 840 EVO 500GB
2x 2TB Hard drives
1x 500GB Hard drive
Power: Not sure but I'll check requirements when build is finalised
Case: fractal arc midi
Monitor: old! Benq g2420HD

Any advice appreciated!

  1. are you playing AAA titles? If not, I will reinstall OS first to see if it resolves issues.
  2. ^ If that does not work, you can keep your storage drives, monitor and case. Re confirm what is your PSU which can be re used.
