I have about a 3 year old rig, that still runs well in most AAA games;nonetheless, I feel the itch to start upgrading to see what true computer gaming is about. So I'm wondering if I'd be better off just upgrading my CPU/Motherboard this black Friday and seeing what video cards are released next year? Or just buying a 5700xt and keep my current motherboard and CPU combo. Looking to go into 1440p. Ty for any suggestions
This is my current build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/9qJ3Z8

I would upgrade the GPU for now. 6600k is still a solid processor.

That being said, don't upgrade your GPU unless you are going to go above 1080p60.
Yeah, I just updated my posting. I'm looking into moving onto 1440p gaming. My current build is fine for 1080, but with games like Cyberpunk, Dying light 2, etc coming out, I would like to see them at a higher resolution.
