You can try overclocking your computer or maybe turn off programs running in the background.

Overclocking if you want to take the risk (I don't suggest OCing your CPU unless you have aftermarket cooling and a full understanding of how to do it),
Turning off ALL background processes when you jump into a game (AV, messenger programs, browsers, everything),
or save up more money to get a better upgrade.

Ultimately, the more powerful the GPU the more FPS you will gain. That said, a more powerful CPU will give slight gains in performance depending on what game it is and how powerful the GPU is.

I couldn't suggest a better PSU.
He nailed it on the head with that choice.
