So I've been thinking about upgrading my computer but i

 

I use my computer for are audio recording/ light video editing (never anything more than 1080p) and playing games. The most intensive being a very heavy Minecraft mod pack. 

 

 

My current pc specs are:

 

CPU: Intel Xeon 1220 3.1ghz quad core

 

motherboard: intel extreme board dz77ga-70k

 

memory: 8gb of ddr3 1600mhz

 

GPU: Radeon r9 280 3gb

 

storage: 640gb hard drive

 

PSU: 650-watt corsair power supply

 

I don't really have a set budget that I'm willing to spend because the research that I've been doing has been all over the place also why I'm asking for advice. 

 

Thank you so much!

I would get a 240gb or 480gb ssd and another 8gb of ram. The ssd will make a huge difference.

SSD and GPU first. Zen 2 Ryzen will come early next year so not the best time to upgrade that yet, though if the CPU is getting slow you could get the Ryzen 5 1600 or 2600, 2600 being 10% faster, after the GPU.

 

As for GPU, that's because RX 570/580 are plenty cheap atm.
