I am not really experienced in the PC building thing I know stuff but I dont know what works with what and what is the most important to upgrade next.
So my PC specs rn is:
GPU: GTX 1050ti 4GB
CPU Ryzen 3 1300x
Ram: 8GB DDR4
Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING
there is no SSD. Yeah that's it I think, I use the PC for gaming (PUBG,GTA V, R6, LOL, looking to get new COD )and one program for studying (AutoCAD)

If you can stretch a little try get a ryzen 5 2600 they are dropping in prices and its 6c/12t.Another thing is idk where you live the rx 570 should be cheaper and is faster.
 
In what way is your pc not doing the job?
Your pc looks relatively well balanced to me.
If you need better gaming performance, start with my canned approach:

Some games are graphics limited like fast action shooters.
Others are cpu core speed limited like strategy, sims, and mmo.
Multiplayer tends to like many threads.

You need to find out which.
------------------------------------------------------------
To help clarify your CPU/GPU options, run these two tests:

a) Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu is strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you are likely more cpu limited.

b) Limit your cpu, either by reducing the OC, or, in windows power management, limit the maximum cpu% to something like 70%.
Go to control panel/power options/change plan settings/change advanced power settings/processor power management/maximum processor state/
This will simulate what a lack of cpu power will do.
Conversely what a 30% improvement in core speed might do.

You should also experiment with removing one or more cores/threads. You can do this in the windows msconfig boot advanced options option.
You will need to reboot for the change to take effect. Set the number of threads to less than you have.
This will tell you how sensitive your games are to the benefits of many threads.
If you see little difference, your game does not need all the threads you have.



It is possible that both tests are positive, indicating that you have a well balanced system,
and both cpu and gpu need to be upgraded to get better gaming FPS.

My PC is preforming very well in every game but PUBG it's just gets too slow to open slow to load in game stuff but I get a decent fps that's why I am thinking of upgrading the RAM and adding a SSD
