Hi all,

Not sure if this is the types of question to ask here but my knowledge of this stuff isn't what it used to be.

I bought this PC about 18 mths ago and would like to either upgrade a few components to OR invest in a new Rig.

These are my specs...
Ryzen 5 Six Core 2600 3.90GHz (Socket AM4) Processor
Gigabyte GA-AB350-Gaming 3 AMD B350 (Socket AM4) DDR4 ATX Motherboard
Team Group Dark Pro "8Pack Edition" 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 PC4-25600C14 3200MHz Dual
Samsung 500GB 860 EVO SSD 2.5" SATA 6Gbps 64 Layer 3D V-NAND Solid State
Cougar GX-S 650W 80 Plus Gold Power Supply
Kolink Aviator Midi Tower Gaming Case
MSI GeForce GTX 1060 OC V1 6GB GDDR5 Graphics Card.

Can anyone recommend what components I could upgrade to make a difference? Ideally I'd like to play MS2020 with Highish detail.

cheers!

For FS2020 upgrade gpu first, maybe a 2070 super? It also likes more cores, so R7 3700x may help but not as much as gpu.

Agree with the turbot, a graphics upgrade would be the best value. A 2070 Super would be a huge jump in performance.

I would add that on highest settings at 4K the game looks absolutely stunning... but, it maxes out my 3080's 10GB of vram and uses 22GB of RAM... depends what res you are playing at and budget?

Thanks all for the information.... can't find any 2070's...

would upgrading the PC ram make a difference or not really?

Nice

Your motherboard should be fine, any problems look at updating the bios on the motherboard.
