It is older. A decent entry to high end PC gaming from 2018/2019

CPU is still potent, but not worth buying new today. 12700K would be a cheaper direct replacement that is significantly faster. Ryzen 5800X as well.

GPU is what I would call entry level high end gaming today. It was the lowest RTX card from the 20 series, and is about as fast as the RTX3050 today.

Storage is somewhat limited. The 500GB drive is fine, but with only an additional 250GB drive, doesn't leave a lot for more than a few AAA game titles at a time.

Power supply is adequate and of a good quality.

This system is fine. No significant bottlenecks. The weakest link is the GPU itself, which will set your maximum graphics settings and resolution far more than the CPU.

RTX 3070 would be within this systems capabilities to run easily. A PSU upgrade would be a good idea for anything bigger.
