So my pc is really old! ive put some new parts into it but now im looking to overhaul many of them! I have zero clue about upgrading this computer so im asking for help figuring out what i need to replace/upgrade/whatever i need to do!

Current Specs:
CPU - AMD FX(tm)- 6300 six core processor
RAM - I have no idea the brand but i have 24gb of it
HDD - 1 Tb hard drive
GPU - Radeon RX 580 (this runs fine and i dont think i need to replace it)
Motherboard - GA-78LMT-USB3 R2
PSU - No idea but its going out anyways so ill get whatever is recommended!
and i use the latest version of windows 10!

If i could get any help i would appreciate it!

Basically everything but the storage and GPU should be tossed. You will want an SSD, and just use the 1tb HDD as extra storage. See the link, in my sig, on asking for upgrade advice. It is quite useful, and makes suggestions far easier.

What do you use the pc for or are there specific things you want the new pc to do, for example you want the highest FPS in games.

If gaming is a key priority what resolution and Hz is your monitor?
I use my pc mostly for gaming and a main priotity of mine is to maintain a stable fps while playing. My monitor is 144 hz and is 1920 x 1080
