I will post my current PC specs below and I am wondering what parts I can buy that will increase my gaming performance (FPS). I am looking to spend up to but no more than $1000. What do you guys recommend I get? The games I play usually are Rust, DayZ, Minecraft, etc... Here are my current specs:

OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit
CPU: Intel i5 8600k @3.6Ghz
RAM: 16Gb Corsair @1199Mhz
Motherboard: MSI z370 Gaming Plus
Graphics: GTX GeForce 1060 6Gb
Storage: 1 Tb hard drive (not ssd)
Power Supply: 650 W power supply

Thank you guys! Again looking to spend up to $1000 to get the best performance thank you

bigger gpu would be the biggest gain.
a ssd would be nice, wont help much with fps, but loading times, and when playing online it prevents slowing down going from lobby to match.

Replace the 1060 with something like the 2060/2070/2080 from the enwer SUPER lineup.
right now the best performance, while usually a bit better on thermals/power consumption than amd,
for that you pay a little premium...
but without knowing resolution/graphics settings you want to use, we cant say if the cpu (might be) a possible bottleneck.

i would rather get two smaller ssds (one for os one for games/software) instead of one big one, and use the hdd as backup/storage drive.
large decent ssd are still kind of expensive.
