If you want to upgrade the total cpu then,

i7 4790k 4.0Ghz Asus Gaming Motherboard or Asus z97k or Any other good one RAM- At least 8GB(better 16GB) Nvidia 960 GTX or 970 GTX

OR For partial upgrade,

4 GB or 8 GB RAM Nvidia 960 GTX (MIN 600 Watt SMPS Needed)

how much should cost that ?

Upgrade your primary hard drive to an SSD, as big you can afford. 256 GB about£100, and just install on it OS and programs. I assume you have a second drive for data, if not then do that. Also upgrade to Win 10.

Add Increase your RAM as stated earlier. 16gb would be great.

I may be wrong but you appear to have an i3 Processor with on board graphics. It's possibly going to be cheaper to buy a new machine.

Almost anything you add, while an improvement on what you have, is unlikely to produce a satisfactory Gaming experience
