I would suggest you upgrade the DDR3 to 16GB.

The CPU+MB is still good enough unless you are CPU-limited in games which is rather unlikely. I went from i7-4790K to i7-8700K and noticed zero difference. Went back to Haswell, now on i5-4690K.

As for the GPU, depends on your monitor resolution and FPS you are currently getting.

Make it 16gb RAM and call it a day. Upgrade GPU only if you got games you can't hit good frame rate.

What resolution are you playing at between both platforms for you to say no difference? I'm keen to cause not sure to upgrade 6700k to 9700k/9900k?
