Would a CPU with HT benefit me more than more RAM and a second GPU?

i5 6600k @ 4.3
Gigabyte z170x Gaming-7
4x4GB GSkill TridentZ 3000 C15
EVGA GTX1070 FTW
I have a small budget for an upgrade and want to get the most from it. Would a 6700/7700k provide a larger performance increase than another 1070 and 8-16GB more memory?

Honestly it'd probably be better to go with the second GPU before adding anything else.

Hyperthreading is ok, but in the current day/age it's not critical since CPU speeds are pretty quick already and in many cases now it's the GPU that matters more anyway.

I mean sure you could go with an i7-7700k but the GPU still matters more for things like gaming or bitcoin mining.
