At 4K, the GPU and monitor are by far the two limiting parts. 4K monitors that run faster than 60 Hz (ie 60 fps) are expensive. GPU's that can render frames faster than 60 fps are expensive, and the 2080 Ti is pretty much the only one.

If you're OK with 60 fps, you can simply replace the GPU with a 2080 Super and keep the rest. (and get a 4K monitor of course.) Your CPU will easily generate 60 fps in nearly all games.
