I would upgrade the GPU. You would be surprised how far that 1200 will get you.

Of course it will become a bottleneck then, but it shouldn't be too bad if it's just an rx 580 or 1060

If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

Well, I can't speak from experience so how about you do a little testing on your end?

 

If you don't already have it, get MSI afterburner. Open er' up and run a really intensive game with max settings, no FPS lock. Look at the graphs Afterburner gives you. Is CPU pegged? Is GPU Pegged? RAM? GPU RAM?

 

Obviously, there are many other factors that contribute to this kind of decision, but if you notice a specific item being taken to it's max, look more into upgrading that part first. Because that is a bottleneck!

I would upgrade the Video card.. :)  or your ram 16 GB should be a minimum. Nowadays games use the CPU so little so.
