I am upgrading my old old PC and want it to be capable of gaming at above 60fps 1080p on titles like Fortnite, Fifa, and Modern Warfare (MW on low/medium settings). The parts of my old pc that I will be keeping will be bold. If you have any recommendations please let me know, I will also be getting wifi to attach to my MOBO (Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) Desktop Kit, AX200, 2230, 2x2 AX+BT, vPro).
