I am building a new gaming PC for games like DOTA 2, Witcher 3, Six Siege, etc and i need help to determine whether i should upgrade my GPU to GTX 1660 or CPU to i5–9400f.
PC Specs:
i3–9100f
amd RX 570
H310 motherboard
8gb ddr4 ram 2666mhz
corsair vs450
 
This is a tough one...The GPU would make the biggest difference straight away but if you could stretch the the 1660Ti for about £50 to £60 more even better as it has quiet a bit more performance on offer. Then later add a 6 core 9400F. Also worth checking the prices of the RX 590 as I believe they have really dropped and it matches the 1660.

Oh and another 8GB would be good too especially if you are not running dual channel with your current RAM.
