Don't know what to upgrade to!

I have a gtx 970 and a i5 2500 non k with 8gb 1333 ddr3 ram and a stock Intel cooler & a cx750m by corsair. I'm trying to figure out what to upgrade to. I was thinking of buying a i7 6700k with a Asus Z170a board and a deep cool captain 240 and ddr4 3000mhz ram. I'm in a 600$ budget! What can I upgrade to. To see a nice preformace difference! But also my ram is 1600 but won't go to 1600 it will only stay at 1333 mhz. So I'm wondering on what to do. Make the upgrade to a better gpu and or a second 970 and new psu and water cooler or just go for the upgrade. But I'm also worried about my processor not being able to handle new games that come out. And also if so I don't want a cpu bottleneck if I do get another 970 or upgrade to another gpu.
