I'd keep what you currenly have. RAM doesn't make a big difference in games when you have 1600MHz.
And the small difference that it could make isn't worth it in my opinion. You'd notice a bigger diffence with a better GPU.

Well if you go with 4790K, then there will be realy no point to upgrade to broadwell later on.
Because there wont be much of a diffrence in terms of ipc.
The biggest diffrence in broadwell will be on the igpu side, which you obviously never use.
