just upgrade the gpu. cpu wouldn't hurt but its not necessary. OC'ing will increase performance as well and can make a chip feel new again.

If you don't already have an ssd then I would say upgrade gpu and install an ssd. The gpu will improve game performance while the ssd will improve system boot and program loading times.
