Hey folks, my problem is, that i cannot run resoucre intensive games (like Metro Exodus) smoothly on my pc. I know that my hardware is not "PC master race", but i meet the recommended system requirements. Now i wonder weather i have to upgrade my hardware and if yes, what exactly? Since my budget is limited i cant afford a complete new pc. Im really happy about any advise.
Current Setup:
i5 4670K;
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 3.40 GHz;
16Gb RAM;
Win 10;
If you need more information, just ask me :)

The CPU Seems about right for most games, with some overclocking it most certainly is no problem. Im focusing on the GPU as thats not the most actual, i endorse the GTX 1080 and 1070.

Tanks to all, i have not overclocked my GPU and i actually dont even know how to do it or if it can be done with my GPU. Could that improve my performance? If that doesnt help ill get a new one.

overclocking CPU, not GPU - You can overclock your GPU but it will only give you 10% more if you are lucky. This also adds extra stress on the entire system as well.
Better off, telling us your budget and maybe we can recommend a better GPU for you

1: If it can be done with your GPU: No idea, do some research online, but you should be able to OC an GTX graphics card.
2: How 2 OC(overclock): Download MSI Afterburner, atleast thats what like more than half the people that overclock use, including me, and i endorse it.
Disclaimer: Overclocking is not easy and fun for everyone, it has its risks and you may not even be able to do it because of your thermals. If you do it i do not take any resposibility if you fry your stuff
