Hey guys, I would like to ask. Currently I have an older system which is probably 4 years old. It has an I3 7100 GTX 1050TI and 16GB RAM, and I was wondering, I dont play that many AAA games so I dont mind this PC but when I do it strugles. And I was thinking should I buy and older I5 7400? Or should I buy new AMD 5th gen Ryzen? I dont want to spend money on GPU atm, since I dont have a lot.

If you play AAA titles-upgrade the GPU
If you play FPS and BR games-Upgrade the CPU
simple as that.
Budget?
