Hello everyone, I am very new to building PCs and have just started to put together a nice one. I have a decent motherboard, 16 GB ram, Ryzen 7 2700x processor and a GTX 760 GPU. I run games on my 55" 4k monitor 30 hz. I am looking to upgrade my GPU in the coming months since its pretty weak in this day and age, new games like The Outer Worlds and even older ones like Dark Souls 3 top out in visual quality at about mid settings, and also display some strange screen tearing/ fuzziness whenever the camera moves side to side. My question is whether it will be more important to upgrade my GPU, or my monitor since the refresh rate is so low. My GPU makes things look good, but no where near great and struggles intensely with 4k resolutions, my fear is that I will upgrade my GPU just to find that my TV cannot keep up with it, please shoot your loads of wisdom all over me.
