All depends what do you want to achieve here?

Upgrading for the sake of upgrading with no firm outcome is just a waste of your money so what do you need to improve here? That is the first thing to ask to decide what you want to make better.

Sticking a faster or more powerful CPU into a system that is already exceeding your needs is a waste of money that will show no improvement. Simeraly changing the Video Card that is displaying frame rates faster than what you are using will not do anything that you will see so what do you want to make better?

ASUS isn't being overly helpful at the moment as when I look at their M'Board Specs for this M'Board all I get is that Specifications are subject to change without notice so I'm not really sure what you have and what it can support though going by the picture of the M'Board it seems to have 2 Video PCI Express Slots so if you want to improve refresh rates of the Video maybe a Dual Video Setup in Crossfire or whatever ASUS support these days would be the way to go. It would cut down on the CPU Load as well but without knowing what you want to improve it's hard to suggest anything.

I personally would go with a new cpu first just because if you want it stream on twitch you will need something better that a i5-4690K also when you up grade your CPU with also help get better frames in game .
