What's your budget for upgrading? That's the deciding factor for what to prioritize. If you've only looking for a single upgrade then your GPU would be the first, but if you've got the cash a CPU/Mobo upgrade would be worth it as well in the long term.

Also assuming you're playing at 1080p 60hz?

CPU, Mobo, and RAM are fine. You could maybe grab a 6 core Ryzen 5 or something to swap out for the R5 1400 but I probably wouldn't bother, better spending the money elsewhere. That said, if you do want a CPU upgrade, you can find great deals on used Ryzen 1st gen stuff, I got my 1700x for £125 and regularly see 1600's go for £90ish.

I'd add another SSD because 120GB is pretty minimal and SSD's are just stupid cheap right now. The 500GB 860 EVO for £75 is a steal(they ran out at £68 on Aria unfortunately);

I'd want to upgrade the case but if you're fine with what you've got, no need to spend the money really. If you do want a nice case upgrade, Fractal Design Meshify C, NZXT H500, and the Phanteks Eclipse series are all worth looking at. Phanteks Enthoo Pro M is also a good shout. All around the £70-80 price range.

I'd definitely upgrade the PSU, either of these would be good;

Then I'd be looking at either a GPU upgrade probably. This 8GB RX 580 is a killer price;

if you're comfortable buying used though, you can find GTX 1070s under £250 pretty easily.

Hey thank you for all of this but i dont think i can use a amd graphics card because i am a graphics designer and octane won't allow amd cards rn so i think a 1070 would be a better option for me
