What do you find lacking about your system?

Do you just have a stack of money you have to blow or something?

I am just gathering opinions based on others'. I might upgrade to either 1080p 144hz or 1440p 60hz. So I was hoping to see if anyone would recommend a GPU upgrade.

Unless you're not okay with running anything but high/ultra settings, your 970 should be fine for that.

A video card upgrade would be the next thing on that list, but only if it's not meeting your performance requirements.

 

Some more RAM would be next.

 

Thank you for your input.

Just a suggestion: in the future, if prices drop, an m.2 ssd could be a viable upgrade. However, with the current pricing of m.2s and as you already have an ssd, I would wait.
