Up the GPU. Either A GTX 760 or a R9 280.

Thanks, which one do you prefer the GTX or R9's?

280 ends up drawing more power, comes out slighty more on top, plus more VRAM and larger memory interface.

Pretty sure you can find one cheaper than a 760 as well.

like this one runs about £8 cheaper than the first 760 that shows up on this site when sorted by price lowest -> highest

One more thing. My power supply is an ATX 500b power supply with 500watts can the r9 280's or GTX 760 able to be used on that power supply?

You should be able to use one of either on a 500W PSU
