Hello everyone, this is my first post here, I have a couple of questions:

My current pc is an I3 3240 3.4GHZ, 6 GB of RAM, 1TB HDD, around 750W, a Biostar H61MHV and a Radeon HD5450 1GB, i'm looking to change my graphics card to a RX 580 4GB ddr5, and increase my RAM from 6GB to 8GB 2x4GB, (at this moment I have 1x2GB and 1x4GB). The thing is I don't know if that graphics card would create a problem of bottleneck with the CPU, Could that happen? Should I look for another CPU? or at least for another 1-2 years (while I gather some money) this settings are good or average?

I use my pc to play (between 720p and 1080p) Warframe, Assassin's Creed 1-Black Flag, Civilization 5 and League of Legends, also sometimes I edit and create some small or medium projects on Adobe Premiere Pro 2017 or Photoshop, looking forward to play and use all of the above plus Battlefield 4 or BF1, Overwatch, Assassin's Creed unity and Fortnite.

I'll appreciate a lot your comments and your help. :)

If you want more performance, do the following:

(1) Replace that 4 GB stick with 8 GB, 1600 MHz.
(2) Replace your 5450 with a 1050.
(3) Add a 240 or 250 GB SSD.

Sell the old 5450 and get yourself a used 1050.

No need to upgrade the power supply.

if i was you i would get a rx 570 instead of the 580 and get a used intel core i7 2600 or i7 3770 if your motherboard supports it then you will get a more balanced system.
