I'm not super knowledgeable about building computers, and my budget is a bit limited, but I need to upgrade my computer to play more modern games that are coming out. (a specific example would be Halo Infinite)
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for what would be most important to upgrade in my computer right now, as far as some future proofing and current performance is concerned?

I have an:
  • Intel I5-7600k CPU @ 3.8GHz
  • Nvidia GTX 1060 w/ 3GB
  • 24 total GB of RAM (2 sticks, 8 and 16 GB I believe)
  • 466 GB SSD (install drive)
  • 1.8 TB HDD
  • PS 650BSM power supply
  • GA-Z270-HD3 motherboard
I don't know if there's anything else important.
I'd love to hear if anyone has suggestions, my budget is less than $1k.
P.S. Sorry if anything here is incorrect, I am new to this forum and forums in general
