system is fine and will last a long time. In the future you may have to gradually lower settings or turn off ray tracing, but it's not like it will suddenly stop working.

No reason to pay a premium now for future performance.

Would i be better off upgrading the GPU or just sell the PC and build a new one in a few years?
The CPU i have now is enough? and the ram and MB?
