Just wondering what I should upgrade for my PC and I'm struggling to run more modern games on my current rig. I'm not very experienced in PC parts so I could use a hand.

Current Parts:
Motherboard: GA-78LMT-S2
GPU: Radeon RX 580
CPU: AMD FX-6300 Six Core Processor
Ram: 8Gb

I would like to know what the priority for upgrades would be here, as I know this is an outdated PC. Thanks for any and all help.

GPU is good. keep that
the rest NEED to be replaced as a block, as such the order you buy is up to you.
what is your budget? what is your region? what is the currency? what is your preferred shop?

yip agree your RX 580 is a great gpu so that should be fine for the next few years. Your 780 board is now quite old even for AMD3+ chips. Cheapest option would be a Gigabyte 990x gaming with M.2 and a 8350 8 core chip about £150 ish using your current ram. Else you are talking serious money for cpu mobo and DDr4 ram. do you really need to upgrade that far? I run my 8350 with R9 290 and another with the RX 570 just fine at 1080i and like you considered a new system but why? not until I seriously consider 4k gaming and even then I would use upscaling rather than native 4k out of the box. Your board is Sata 2 and USB 2??? Yip a 990x with M.2 or a SSD with Sata 3 would be a massive upgrade speed wise

still a big processing upgrade. DDR 4 and a board that it runs on. the entry model Ryzen gives you myriad upgrade paths later and updated extensions some newer games require.
