Upgrade CPU+Mobo+RAM+(PSU needed?) (500$)


Here's my current setup.
CPU: Intel Core i5-4690k 3.5GHz 6MB
Motherboard: Asus Z97-AR
RAM: Kingston HyperX Savage DDR3-1600MHz 2x4GB
GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 AMP! Edition 6GB
SSD: Kingston HyperX Fury 240GB
PSU: XFX TS 550W 80+ Bronze
Cooling: Noctua NH-U12S
Case: Nox Hummer ZX

I have some issues playing games like BF5 (1080p), so i decided to try an upgrade. What you guys suggest?
Do i need to upgrade de PSU? I think is fine tbh (3 years of use)

Thanks in advance!

  1. That's a balanced setup now, you don't NEED an upgrade.

    If you want more performance in games upgrade the Graphics card to a GTX 1070 or RTX 2070.
  2. I'd buy a cooler and oc your processor (or just oc it now if u have a decent one) as he said you're pretty balanced
  3. That shouldn't have problems playing BF5 at 1080. You might need 8GB more memory and a newer video card but that's it.
