what specs do you have? i dont think a 1060 is high end any morew
i3 3240, 2x8gb of ram, R9 380 4gb.
I will be upgrading my cpu/ram/mobo in June to probalby low end i3's from either 10th or 11th gen.
I play at 1080p and im very satisfied with the performance im getting, its just that my cpu just cant keep up no more, mainly because of its 2 cores.

You really needed to ask these questions BEFORE you purchased the PC.

For recording and running high FPS, a decent high end video card should assist, along with SSD storage,

Im on an old i5 4th gen CPU with a 1650 video card and SSD, can happily record GTA at 40+fps.

This thread hurt my brain.
For one, formatting. List parts like
GPU:"Manufacturer and Model"
CPU:"Manufacturer and Model"
RAM:"Manufacturer and Model"
PSU: "Manufacturer and Model"
Etc.
Then you can compare parts lists to each other and we can actually get somewhere in this thread.
EDIT
High end IMO is $1500+
