I'm not entirely sure if it's time for my CPU to upgrade or my RAM because I want to be able to run beefy games like MW and Fortnite while being able to have music, Discord, and even Chrome all be opened in the background without any lag or fps drops. When I recently ran Fortnite, in my task bar my resource monitor said memory was at 97% and cpu was only around 60%.

Here is my benchmark from PassMark and UserBenchmark:

Here are my current specs:

Motherboard: MSI H110I PRO AC

Processor: Intel Core i5-6600

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070

SSD: SanDisk X400 256GB

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB & WD Blue 1TB

RAM: XPG DDR4 2400 2OZ 2x4GB

Your CPU was only 60% but the memory was about all of it so memory to 16GB for sure.
