Not much to upgrade that will make since unless you spend a ton on a video card.

Assuming this is targeting a higher RES 1440p "gaming build " the tangible upgrade path here would be getting better FPS returns in games. This is only achievable with a higher-end GPU. Since you've got a solid performing rig already and im sure you're already easily capitalising on 80-90fps+, I would wait a little longer for next GPUs from NVIDIA.

Current higher-end GPU's carry a large price tag but offer unjustified returns in performance which makes for a poor investment. Eg. a RTX 2080 SUPER deliver around 20fps more (average) but demands a $700 spend - which is madness for most but doable if you fancy lowering the wallet weight. A more meaningful performance gain would be the RTX 2080 TI but the cost again is rampant.

Nvidia is expected to launch their 3000-series RTX fire-power sometime in mid-2020. Fingers crossed the performance gains will be more lucrative hence a worthier upgrade approach.
