My current PC is a Acer Aspire GX 781.
CPU: Intel Core i5 7400 3GHz. GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX1060 3gb. Memory: 8GB DDR4 RAM + 256GB SSD + 2TB External HDD.
I feel like it dont run the games i play (warzone, Hunt, Sea of thieves etc.) as smooth as i want. I dont know if my standards are too high or its the PC thats need a upgrade.
Should i sell this or replace some parts?

Your pc is definitely in need of an upgrade for those titles, the 1060 6GB which is a little step up from your gpu is already a little dated. I'd recommend holding out for now and upgrading your GPU once prices settle. I'd recommend turning shadows, effects, reflections etc down to minimum, then texture detail maybe medium on your games to get decent performance while it not looking terrible. ↓ I agree with sizzling, you also need that too.

Speed is on the lower end compared to new parts, but your standards are based on what settings? Are you at 1080 resolution or higher? What quality settings are you running? What if you lower them a bit? Video cards are very expensive now to upgrade, probably better to drop settings a bit.
