Hello,

My pc specs are as the following;

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB Dual Video Card
Motherboard: MSI X370 GAMING PRO CARBON ATX AM4
SSD: Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB ATA Device
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200

Any suggestions would be appreciated as I haven't upgraded for some time now and know I'm probably out of date.

Thanks,

For gaming primarily? What resolution and frequency is your monitor?

You board would need a BIOS update.

Just an example of what I would do. You have the core components, want to enjoy 1440p? There are likely better FreeSync monitors out there, I'm just not an expert on what's the best choice.

PC is for gaming and my current monitor is a BenQ ZOWIE XL2430. Would you recommend changing to intel or staying with Ryzen?
