I got windows 10 now, is it not worth getting a relatively current gen motherboard that supports a way better cpu and ddr4? Happy to spend 100 bux as it opens up to M.2, pcie ect.

I wouldn't really recommend upgrading a dead platform. Coz you won't gain much improvements by upgrading to 4790k. 

 

I would rather suggest you to sell your current cpu, Mobo and ram combo and buy something new, something like a ryzen 5 3600 or 5600, a b550 motherboard and 16gb ddr4 3600mhz cl16 ram kit.

 

Also, you should upgrade to windows 10. It runs better than windows 8.1.

 

Edit : Just realised that you need to upgrade your GPU as well.

Planning on upgrading GPU later down the track, i agree entirely with you, looking at ryzen 5 3600. Only thing im not sure on is motherboard b550 is mATX, current case supports ATX or can it do both?
