I really need help with finding which parts to upgrade for my pc. I’m looking to play Modern Warfare or similar games in graphic intensity. Here’s my current build, I’ve been checking task manager and cpu usage has been around 80-90% with the gpu usage under 10%, also ram as well as hard drive have been around 70-80%.

Hi, from what I can see you need a CPU + GPU + SSD upgrade, and more ram down the line, first you need an SSD, in 2020 you can't be without it, here one I recommend: https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX500-250GB-NAND-Internal/dp/B0781VSXBP/ref=as_li_ss_tl?dchild=1&keywords=mx500&qid=1585516907&sr=8-2&linkCode=ll1&tag=xm3a06-20&linkId=59d6eaf104d9908c10eda32f075ba543&language=en_US

For now, if you are on a budget I recommend the SSD and a CPU upgrade if you say you get 70-80% usage out of it and the GPU only 10%, the Ryzen 5 3600 is now in a very good price, you should get it, but don't forget to update the bios to you mobo first: https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-3600-12-Thread-Processor/dp/B07STGGQ18/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ac_md=0-0-MzYwMA==-ac_d_rm&cv_ct_cx=3600&dchild=1&keywords=3600&pd_rd_i=B07STGGQ18&pd_rd_r=13991992-1896-4720-a0fd-aad38be322c8&pd_rd_w=GWXhE&pd_rd_wg=MCvbP&pf_rd_p=ab7e4d6d-4494-43e9-8915-3a4910aefd56&pf_rd_r=WNQ7D20JS3XJBMN38P26&psc=1&qid=1585517064&sr=1-1-12d4272d-8adb-4121-8624-135149aa9081&linkCode=ll1&tag=xm3a06-20&linkId=17e144bfe373a428fb49acfeee8cfcde&language=en_US


If you have the budget then after the CPU you should upgrade you GPU, 1050ti is a very slow card, I recommend the RX 5600XT: https://www.amazon.com/XFX-Thicc-1620MHz-Graphics-RX-56XT6DFD6/dp/B083FWMZ8Z/ref=as_li_ss_tl?dchild=1&keywords=rtx+2060&qid=1585517214&refinements=p_n_feature_four_browse-bin:6066317011&rnid=2057431011&s=pc&sr=1-23&linkCode=ll1&tag=xm3a06-20&linkId=10843c167524c14aef7101b56d5bb9ab&language=en_US


After that if you have more budget then another 8GB of ram would help you a lot in the upcoming games, this is the same memory kit you have right now: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-2x4GB-2400MHz-Memory/dp/B019HVND88/ref=as_li_ss_tl?dchild=1&keywords=Corsair+Vengeance+LPX+8+GB+(2+x+4+GB)+DDR4-2400+Memory&qid=1585517314&s=electronics&sr=1-1&linkCode=ll1&tag=xm3a06-20&linkId=cb31b900e4e9287f6d0a377d62f9147f&language=en_US

But I recommend you sell the kit you have now and get a faster kit, ryzen workes much better with fast ram, I recommend this: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-2x4GB-2400MHz-Memory/dp/B0143UM4TC/ref=as_li_ss_tl?dchild=1&keywords=Corsair+Vengeance+LPX+8+GB+(2+x+4+GB)+DDR4-2400+Memory&qid=1585517314&s=electronics&sr=1-1&th=1&linkCode=ll1&tag=xm3a06-20&linkId=c973df42ba2e5c41cdbbba9df5650e26&language=en_US

Get a solid state drive. Would be a substantial upgrade over your hdd's. A more powerful processor isn't a bad idea and neither is some faster RAM. Possibly 16gb.
