Need help upgrading my pre built pc

Hello, I am fairly new to pc building and upgrading parts. I was gifted a Cyberpowerpc prebuilt last year for a birthday present.  Although the pc is fairly decent to run most games like CS GO, Pubg, Farcry 5, etc, it just doesn't seem to be able to run the new games like BF5, Call of Duty, and some other games. It can't run these games at medium settings at all and I have to go to the lowest settings to be able to get at least 60fps. Here is the pc: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883230178

 

^^^^ I have actually upgraded the fans to some nice Corsair ones and the power supply to a 650w silver rating 

 

Location: USA

 

Budget: I generally don't have one, I'm going to be gathering money throughout 2019, I dont want to spend any more than 700$-800$ on parts for upgrading the thing.

 

Aim: To run high end games like BF5, Far Cry 5, Cod at medium to high settings. Idk, I just want the games to run with ease.

 

Monitors: I have two monitors, my one I want to use for web browsing/ secondary monitor https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?reviews=all&Item=N82E16824236758 , and the gaming monitor I ordered coming in soon https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Monitor-Refresh-FREESYNC-Technology/dp/B075KFPJ5C/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1543795722&sr=8-3&keywords=27+curved+144hz+monitor+acer .

 

Peripherals: I have a good keyboard, mouse, mousepad, and headphones, I know I am fine there.

 

Why I am upgrading?: Being able to run some nice looking video games is pretty much all I want haha

 

Thank you for reading my thread and I hope that I get a response xd

I already know people will come telling you to get Ryzen, but for the sake of convenience, you should get an i7 7700 and a GTX 1070. No need for a new motherboard.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

The i7 7700 and i7 6700 are CPUs (which are considered the brain of a computer). A GTX 1070 is a graphics card, which controls the output to a display/screen.

Kabylake refers to 7th gen Intel CPUs.

 

The i7 8700 is a 6c/12t CPU, the i5 8600 is a 6c/6t CPU, and the i7 6700 is a 4c/8t CPU.
