System:
Ryzen 3 1200
1050ti EVGA SC

What should I upgrade next?
Uses: (in order of importance) Gaming, video editing, recording, streaming.

Budget: Around $250-$280

I have a couple of ideas to upgrade to but im not sure if they are worth it or not,
Idea #1 Ryzen 5 2600
Idea #2 RX580
Idea #3 Ryzen 5 1600x

Hope I listed everything, if not just ask away! Thanks for the help.

What games do you play? What power supply do you have?

For that budget you could upgrade to an rx580 and then a ryzen 5 1600. If you cant quite fit the 1600 in budget your 1200 will handoe a 580 decently in many games.

Keep in mind the 1600x doesnt ship with a cooler and your 1200s stock cooler isnt designed to handle the 1600x. If you have an aftermarket cooler this isnt an issue.

If you want some free improvements a ram and cpu oc could help.
