can you give me the brand/model of your new cpu please?

Have to know if the 24v connector is an 4 pin or an 8th one

do you want to OC? K series intel processor and Z series MB are meant to be overclocked, it's no use ( but for style ) to spend 80 euros more, if you won't OC

to me no need for ddr4 , actual gain of ddr4 towards ddr3 can only be seen on benchmarks or if you wish to set a 4k screen wich is, if i understand you out of budget...

I'm not sure an actual upgrade to Broadwell will give you many more power than your actual and excellent IvyBridge (still considering economy)

maybe you can have an Haswell upgrade that could be much cheaper and will last for a long time : the future generation games will surely impact on our actual machines, but there is actually really no worthy game to invest more than 800 euros in a complete configuration

this is what i'd advise you :

Processor : intel I5 4670 3.4 Gh, with a turbo mode at 3.8 : 195 euros
MB : Asrock - Fatal1ty e - Atx - Lga1150 Socket - H87 : 120 euros (if you want to keep asrock, I personnaly dislike the asrock UEFI, but...)
keep your actual DDR3 (0 euro) or double it to 16 Go (just buy 2 more corsair vengeance 4Go): 80 euros
and spend cash on a very decent MSI GeForce GTX 770 Twin Frozr GAMING 2GB for 280 euros

if your new PSU match this ( you only need a 550 W in this case ) you'll have a quite nice upgrade and gain for only 675 euros

can you offer more? let's see what is your actual CPU cooler, most of them in ivy bridge (socket 1155) will match with haswell (1150) with the intel backplate
if ever , i can look for so nice CPU coolers (efficient and classy) around 60 euros, depending of your actual case

do you want to go further? have you got more money to spend? the choice is really wide nowadays ^^

My current RAM is DDR3.

I'm planning on getting the very same CPU you suggested Intel Core i5 4670K 3,4 GHz (3,8GHz turbo (Haswell).
The motherboard I had in mind were MSI Z97 GAMING 3, it is Intel 1150 socket as well. Because the ASRock UEFI as you said, is also not to my liking after having used it for 2 years.

If nothing is wrong with the graphic card, I won't switch it out for the moment.
About the CPU cooler, since I'm getting a new case also (be quiet! Silent Base 800) I were thinking of getting one of the same brand as well, since my newest PSU I bought is be quiet! Pure Power L8 630W 80+ Bronze.
Which is why I picked be quiet! Pure Rock. My old CPU cooler is a standard one that you plug with plastic rubber plugs in the MB and the back of the case, I think it came with the old CPU pack.

But I'm open for suggestions if you or any here got better advices. I actually got a 2900 euro budget, but I don't plan on using more than 640 because it wouldn't be wise to waste that capital my parents have invested for me on a computer when I could get a drivers license or more important stuff for example. While it is my money in the end, I think it's better to be more responsible with them. :P

As of now, the purchase in total will cost me 576, so I still have some room for changes.

Good choice too (i've OC my 4670K up to 4200 MHz )
be quiet! Silent Base 800 is a nice case and very efficient against noise (but 120 euros ^^)
you're actual gpu is sufficient too

ehm... what is your gpu now?? what 1 do u have?

and what about the fractical design define R5 case?
thats a very nice case with lots off demping and good cooling
but a case is personal
cpu... i5 is good ;)
motherboard msi z97 gaming 3 is also a good 1 ;)
and for a power supply a 550 or 600 w. is enough
and u now have 8 gig ram? its good i think
but if you do alot with 3d and u think its getting to slow u can always put more ram in it if u want
I'm not weird i'm limited edition
