So the only thing i'd really need to get is a stronger GPU. But can I really get one for $400 bucks?

A 1070 is around that price and would be a significant step up from your 680.

for $80 bucks more I can just get a 1080

Would I just be better off waiting a year for the price to dip under $400 or is that probably not going to happen?

Your GPU is too old, but you can just pop-in a new 10X0 Nvidia card and you'll be on top again.

The TI model are around 20% or so more powerful, than the base gtx 1070 model, so for a 10 dollars more it would be a heck of a deal.

What upcoming games are you upgrading for?

It's always better to wait if you can. When the games are released, there will be benchmarks available, and if we're talking about months, there's a chance Nvidia and AMD will have released their next series.

This, the next series of nVidia cards should be coming in the spring/summer so unless there's really something you HAVE to play I would wait and upgrade your GPU then you seem fine with the 16GB of RAM and that processor should last another 1-2 years

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.80GHz
Installed Memory(RAM): 16.0 GB
System Type: 64-bit OS
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680
Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H

Want to know because there are a few upcoming games i want to get an was wondering which platform theyd look nicest on.

Hell no. Swap out the garb 680 and install a 1070. The thing is, a PS4 Pro and X1X can take a 1440p ish resolution and upscale that to 4K. At the end of the day, that output is going to look better than what this GPU can produce. Whether or not it's "real" 4K. Get a 1070, learn how to lock/adjust games for 30fps and put it in true 4K. THEN it'll be better than the consoles.
