* Easiest upgrade is RAM, Find an IDENTICAL stick of Ram to the one you have already

* You can find an identical Seagate drive and do RAID0 for your games

* Regarding GPU, nowadays you can't go below a Nvidia 1060. Don't buy anything right now prices are inflated, wait for prices to go down. Even used cards are expensive Ideally you would want to buy a 3060, that would be a bit of overkill, but you could keep it while upgrading or when you move to another system.

Im not too sure what  this means... (im not the best at tech)

Alos as to the GPU is swapping from AMD to NVIDIA grpahics card as easy as taking it out and re-installing the new GPU?..

And for the RAM, would it not be more benefitial to get 2 new sticks of 8gb at a higher speed?

Also you could get higher speed Ram and there would be some improvement but it seems more cost effective to me to add one more identical RAM. If you can not find one that is exactly the same then buy 2 new ones.

So I should be planning on getting the identical Drive and do the ''RAID 0''

Then I should be looking to find the same RAM and if not buy 2 new ones with higher speeds. 

And finally get a new GPU 3060 maybe as u said slightly overkill but I can keep it in the future....

CEX currently shows DDR4 3200 (should be ok with your motherboard at under £30 per 8Gb module, downside with them is it is potluck as to brand offered and buying more than one module could lead to miss-matched sticks. Upside you can probably find similar prices on Gumtree if you are in a reasonably busy area.

 

I would hold off on a GPU at the moment as even preowned prices are through the roof.

 

Regarding PSU , under 750W seem to be fairly findable but again with supply issues prices are kind of high atm and whilst you may find a deal with a preowned unit you will have no idea how it was treated prior to that and that could present a problem.

Correct:   Identical drive, Identical RAM, 3060 when prices go down

Do you think there is any upgrade needed on my motherboard or not?

With your current budget ulness you can find something realy good second hand I would say not realy as AM4 is coming to the end of its time. That said a lot of people have upgraded recently and have parts to offer so you may be able to. 

 

You would br trimming your budget very hard to do it with new parts

Motherboard NO, CPU maybe depends on what your current MB supports
