Hey there, I have been looking to upgrade my PC for a little while but i'm not sure what would be the most practical to upgrade.

My specs:

GTX 1080
Ryzen 5 2600
16GB Corsair Vengeance 3200mhz
ASUS B450 Prime Mobo
500Gb Samsung EVO
1TB Seagate HDD

Thank you!
 
Immediately, probably nothing. Come around late 1st quarter next year and either go with the 5xxx chip when BIOS drops OR with a 30xx GPU. Either of those would do wonders.
I feel like the 1080 would be more a limiting factor to the 5xxx CPU than the 3070 (for instance) would be to the 2600 you now have.

I've just been noticing that some games just don't perform well, maybe there's an issue. I just thought maybe my specs were outdated now.

As far as 'hearsay' is concerned...a buddy of mine has a 2600 build where he was using a 1660 and it was performing really nicely with 1080, as you would expect. He lucked up and clicked at the right moment and picked a 3070 at BestBuy. It's SOLID 60+ frames at 4K with modified ultra/high settings on everything. No OC or anything.
