Instead of buying next gen console i figured id just invest in more up to date parts for my computer build. It is a few years old now so im wondering what i should change/upgrade first (besides buying a ssd of course)!!! It is used for gaming mainly and photoshop here and there! Thanks!!

Current Specs!


edit: willing to drop $300-$500 if that helps

Definitely add an SSD if you don't already have one.

Next logical upgrade after that would be a GPU, but if you're dropping $400+ on a GPU, I'd probably wait for Ampere at this point, maybe even RDNA2 if you're happy to hold on to the 1050Ti for a while.
Although it depends on what monitor(s) you're using. If you're just running a 1080p60Hz monitor or something, then grab a 1660 Super and call it a day IMO.

After GPU/SSD, I'd be adding more RAM. 16GB is the minimum I'd want in a system these days.
