I build this PC back in 2015 and basically never used it until the last two months. I play Dayz and Minecraft and the age of my PC is starting to show. I'm here to ask for help, does anyone have any ideas on how I can improve my performance in these games. Short of rebuilding the whole rig I'm open to suggestions. I plain on doing a whole new build sometime text year.  Here's my PC  https://pcpartpicker.com/list/jqC6Wb

Well I mean you can upgrade to an i7 and better GPU like a 1660 Super, but what country are you in and how much are you willing to spend

If you want pure game performance, your i5 will barely get you by. You should upgrade your GPU first, to something like a 1660 Super (or you can splurge and snag a 2060), but after that, you'll want to swap out your CPU, which unfortunately if you want anything from within the past 6-7 years, you'll need to get a new motherboard, which will require new RAM (DDR4). I recommend going with a B550 board if you want upgradibility.


Main Rig: i5-4460, EVGA GTX 1060, Gigabyte GA-H81M-H, 16GB of G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 RAM, 120GB Samsung SSD, 1TB Segate SSHD

Other Tech: iPhone XS 64GB, Nintendo 3DS XL (Snapped), Apple Watch Series 2, Airpods, Nintendo Switch, Retro Consoles, Vizio 32" Smart TV

I was thinking about a 2060 but there kinda expensive. I've only got $450-$500 USD. NZgamer I live in the US. And an other Issue I'm having my 250 gb ssd is just about full. So I'm gonna have to get a new hard drive with the $450-$500 as well. Any recommendations?
