cpu is good enough for 1080p 60fps, not for 1080p 144 Hz so is the 970.
If you wanna buy a new monitor, you might see some results especially if you want to lower your settings, however full benefit of a new monitor would be new cpu and gpu.
I would say for 1080p 60 fps , you're good, if you want to up the res or refresh, then you would need to step by step upgrade anything else.
in some cases the i5 would bottleneck the 1070 but in most cases it should keep up.
