2015 is a bit in the past. Max setting but what resolution? If you are talking 4k 120fps, you will need a very high end monitor and dual 2080ti SLI. 1440p 144fps a 2070 does fine, 2080 a bit better and 2080ti solo can hit 60-70fps in 4k. The 2070 is current best price/performance.

As he said, the screen resolution you're going for is the key to your build.

For ~$2000 the vanquish 7 level 4 is probably the best deal out there for your upgrade. Your PSU, idk what connectors it has or not, modular or not, but it can be swapped in if it has the proper connectors. For the most part everything else needs upgraded and as for overclocking.... Intel and AMD have traded places on being fireballs, so a water cooler is a must if you plan to overclock.
