current build needs some TLC


Budget (including currency): $700

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Warzone mostly

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

- I have just updated my 2nd monitor to a 240hz Alienware. So I have that in addition to my 60Hz BenQ.

- I play at 1080p on high settings and currently get around 90-110fps in Warzone

- I sometimes see lag and quality go down when I have Warzone on my 240Hz and Twitch/YouTube video on my BenQ 60Hz


Just wanting to know what I am missing and what would be great to put into this build.


edit: I have 32gb RAM it says only one

thats your cpu starting to show its age. check task manager while playing and you may see your cpu hitting 90-100%.


unfortunately that means a platform upgrade, but the list i provide below also includes a new case to hold the full atx board and a larger and faster ssd which is nice these days, keep your psu and gpu, old storage can act as secondary drives.
