So here's what I'd suggest.... Make sure your motherboard's BIOS is completely updated so that the new CPU will work properly.

You don't need to replace everything, you've already got most of a build! The i5 7500 is so much faster than your G4400.

Regarding the GPU the best one to go for is the GTX 1060 6GB but I put the 3GB in there because it's still really good and over $50 cheaper.

I'd get this CPU instead, it repleaced the i5 7500, and has 2 more cores and better single core speed.

but doesn't fit in a H110. So you also need to buy another mobo.
