Seeking advice, not sure whether to upgrade my build

Budget (including currency): SGD500

Country: Singapore

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Genshin Impact, League of legends, Witcher 3 

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): 

Zotac Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
Intel Core i5-7400
MSI B250I Gaming Pro Ac(MS-7A67)
8GB DDR4 1066MHz

500W Power Supply


I used to be able to play genshin on one screen while watching YouTube videos and being on discord on the other but now I can't even play genshin and watch Youtube without the CPU reaching 100% utilization. Should I be upgrading anything and if so what should I upgrade to?

12400F + B660 should be a good upgrade, or if the 12400F is expensive a 12100F. Faster RAM would also make a big difference but you should upgrade the CPU/motherboard first.

Yeah thats cpu limits due to game requiring more power nowadays. Nothing abnormal an upgrade to a modern platform like @Pixelfiesuggested is what you want
