If you are satisfied with current performance, then no upgrade is required obviously.Tthis is a pretty solid system overall.

But here is some insight:

- your GPU is probably the best part in your rig.
- CPU only has 2 cores with hyperthreading, which makes it a 4-thread CPU; games which require more threads (6, 8 or more) will be bottlenecked by the CPU. Others which use up to 4 threads should all work flawlessly.
- 8 GB of memory is OK, but 16GB is recommended for latest games. It all depends on which games you play. For some, 8GB is plenty. For most recent ones you will need 16GB.
- not an immediate issue, but 120GB SSD is quite small, especially if you install games to it. At least 250GB, preferably 500GB is today's norm.
