I want to upgrade my server. My CPU (~90%) and Memory (~75%) utilization is constantly high. My server is annoyingly slow at times.  Below are my specs. What can you recommend I do to improve performance without purchasing items that will be in overkill?  For example, if I increase memory from 64GB to 128GB is that overkill? What would be the minimum and the maximum I should consider when I do the upgrade for each item?

My Specs:

Operating System: Windows Server 2012 R2       
Processor: 4 CPU (8 virtual) @ 2.50GHz      
Memory: 64GB      
C Hard Drive: 500GB      
D Hard Drive: 4TB
