What to uograde??

Good moreing/Afternoon to everyone!

 

With black Friday and Cyber Monday right around the corner I was thinking of up grading either my CPU or my graphics card. This is my current set up.

 

Ryzen 5 2600x slight OC

RX 570 8gb 

16g ram

Blah blah blah 

 

 

My question is what should I upgrade? CPU or GPU? My budget is $400 I will be going to Fry's on Black Friday FYI.

i guess your GPU if anything, but I dont think you really need to upgrade your system should be good.

Why would you upgrade your CPU? It's perfectly fine. I'd also leave the GPU unless you're playing games at more than 60fps.

"Blah blah blah" isn't a very helpful system spec.

You can't upgrade your CPU in any decent measure for $400.   Could pop for a 1070 for that amount, it's an upgrade.

 

You most likely have other components that may be worth upgrading before the minimal benefit of a 1070 though.

16GB RAM is plenty for most applications these days.

Ryzen 5 2600x is in the latest Zen architecture chip family, no real reason to upgrade it. If anything, OC it more (and get a new cooler if your temps are too high).

RX 570 is ~a year and a half old (from release date). So if you really want to upgrade something, just nab a 1070+ (20 series Nvidia is too expensive and not good enough to recommend, unless the sale is deep enough).

 

Edit: If you do not have one (or more) already, you could get an SSD boot drive (and/or game drive). SSDs are really nice to have.
