The 8400 is probably a little faster per-core, but you can't OC it and all but 1 or 2 threads are going to be closer to 2.8ghz than 4.0. I'd go with the 1600 and OC it, but if you don't want to overclock just get the 1600X and you'll be set.

Your easiest upgrade would be a haswell i7 like the 4790K, but it wouldn't be a huge boost. Your other option is a new CPU, new board, and DDR4. Remember that adding cores won't necessarily help a lot of games, the 4670K is still plenty strong especially when OCd.
