Also the 980 is usually overpriced and not even good. Most of the time you can find another 500gb drive for the same price.

That makes sense. I changed it to keeping the drive and getting a 6600xt.

I am thinking about putting a few hundred dollars into a upgrade. I have chose the parts, I just was wanting to know if they're good choices OR if there are better choices. My main reason for upgrading is that 1050ti is NOT great for VR use. I am fairly budget restricted, but I have more or less $600.

Current Build:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600X

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1050-Ti

 

SSD: WD Black SN750 M.2 250GB

RAM: G.SKILL Flare X DDR4 3200 C14 2x8GB

Upgrade:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X

GPU: AMD RX 6600

SSD: Samsung 980 M.2 250GB

RAM: G.SKILL Flare X DDR4 3200 C14 2x8GB

 

I also hope that this will future proof my PC for as little as that may last.

250GB SSDs are a bit iffy, but you can keep the old in addition to the new one I guess, otherwise you may probably want to downgrade to 5600X and invest the savings into the better GPU.

I should have pointed out that I also have 1x Tb drive and 2x 500gb drives as well.

6700XT is not a bad combo with 5600X.

 

But for me I would try to get more than 8-12 GB of VRAM.
