Hello, I have recently acquired some funds and am going to upgrade my PC. My PC is ok, but it struggles on large, open world games like GTA and Forza, and I cannot run my RTS's very well either. I was wondering what I should upgrade, or at least upgrade first, maybe my graphics card? These are my specs so far:

GTX 1060 6GB graphics card
550 Watt power
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P motherboard
AMD FX-4300 Quad-core processor

What do you think needs replacing in order to run bigger games? Thanks.

The motherboard and cpu are getting on a bit and the 4300 amd chip is not really a good gaming choice. Updating those will require up to date to ddr4 memory as well. Sounds like its nearly time to update the lot, except video card, including a PSU with more reserve output.
