What should I add/change to improve PC for gaming?

Have preordered Shadows of Mordor, which I'm certain I'll be able to run at least on minimum settings (current specs below). I'm thinking of getting a new GPU anyway (probably SAPPHIRE AMD R9 280 Graphics Card (3GB, DDR5), but was just wondering if I ought to invest in a new CPU as well (or instead).

Basically, is there any point doing one without the other?

I'd be grateful for any constructive advice :)

Specs: Processor AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor, Video Card AMD Radeon R7 200 Series, Ram 8GB
