If all you do is game, I'd keep the RAM to 8GB, let the processor, the cooler be if they work great, and upgrade the monitor to atleast a 1440p screen and a better GPU. You can keep the same case if you're only looking aesthetic changes. If you still want to upgrade, I'd do it after I have taken care of the GPU, monitor, SSD. Also, what PSU do you have ?

If you're only gaming, then yeah, leave the RAM at 8GB. I can't say I'd recommend the Hydro CLCs anymore. Swiftech H220-X, EK Predator, once they're withing your budget. A better GPU from the Polaris or Pascal lineup should be your choice in June. And while the 750D is a wonderful case, my own preference leads towards fractal design or NZXT, so you can take a look at those too.
Also, which 750W?

Can you get Swiftech? In the US, the H220-X2 is only a few dollars more than the H100i, and a world away in performance and noise. Unless there is a seriously dramatic price difference, buying a CLC is downright foolish.
