right now i have...

i7 3770k
8GB DDR3

if nintendo switch doesn't have good console deal this holiday, i might just upgrade my PC.

so for around 400$ would i be able to upgrade to decent MB/RAM/CPU combo? coming from what i have now.

or just wait till i have more budget?

i upgraded last year to a GTX1070, so im good with GPU.

im not really one of those always ultra settings kind of guy obviously

Define “decent.” You may not be in i7 territory anymore. Why do you even need us for this? Start pushing stuff into PCPartPicker and do your own price comparisons.

good improvement to what i have but obviously not top end

trying to see if it's worth it now.

all the games i play seem to still run very good barring optimization issues (like games not using more vram but require more CPU and RAM)

Have you actually played anything where the i7 is holding you back?

The i7 3770k has aged well and it's not necessary to upgrade yet. Might be motivated getting 16GB+ RAM though.

and relies more on RAM and CPU

More RAM is the only thing you should consider.
