Hello!
I just wanted to point out that I am a complete noob at building a pc's and technology.

My current pc specs are:
CPU: intel i5 4460
GPU: Nvidia gtx 970
MO-BO:gigabyte b85m-d3h-a LGA 1150
RAM: DDR3 2x4GB 1600mhz Crucial ballistix
HDD: WD Blue 1TB

And now my problem comes.
What to upgrade especially for gaming quality. I mostly play Fortnite and CS:GO but i sometimes play newer games.

I also would love to buy a 144hz monitor but i dont have stable 144 fps in fortnite.

So what should i upgrade in order and when to buy 144hz monitor
[my money budget is about 500$ as of now, but i just want to know for what parts i should look for and upgrade them]

Thanks for every answer!

As of now you have a balanced system, your I5 may be able to handle GTX1660Ti but other than that you may want to do a total overhaul. Your $500 will get you a new platform CPU/board/ram and a SSD. Selling the used parts may give you enough for a stronger GPU as well.

Thank you very much!
So what should I buy first in your opinion? Save some money for gpu or buy CPU etc. already?
