Hey guys

I have pretty cheap setup but i think it can run little bit better and im looking for which part is a bottleneck in my system. I can do upgrade my-self im technician but i dont know PC parts that well.

my system:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.6GHz
Graphic: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
MB: HP Odense2-K
Ram 16GB DDR4
 
The GTX1060 (3 GB) will certainly game at reduced (medium) quality settings at 1080P on newer games, and the 7700 is certainly capable of fully saturating the 1060 ...(it would be nice to have a 7700K's 400-600 MHz higher clock speeds, but, requiring coolers, they are likely not cost effective options, rivaling or exceeding the coast of a new CPU/MB combo, so, I'd advise most wait and evaluate possible CPU/MB upgrades after Ryzen 3000 release in 31 days or so, where many sub$300 6 cores will debut... (Your gaming will always be limited to medium quality at best at 1080P for most modern games, as the 1060 (3 GB) is a lower-medium range card..

(BTW, the 7700 is a quad core, but w/ 8 threads...not remotely the same as '8 CPUs') :)

gpu is the weakest bit.

RAM is only really issue if games are using more than you have (easy to tell by loading up task manager and run in background and checking the performance and after awhile check what peak usage is).

cheapest improvements would likely be the rx 580 or a gtx 1660
