I5-6500, 16GB 2133, Asus Strix Z270G mATX, GTX 950, 550W PSU. It is starting to feel a little slow in certain uni tasks (programming and network architecture and security) and especially in newer gaming titles, therefore I feel both a cpu and gpu upgrade are in order.
£600 budget, 1080p gaming, I have a G-sync monitor as my primary display.
I feel there are two logical paths both are roughly £570.
Ryzen 5 1600 AF 12nm, B450M Mortar Max, 16Gb 3200 Corsair Vengeance, WiFi PCIe adapter, EVGA RTX 2060 KO
2nd hand i7-7700k (found some for £200), Deepcool Castle 280, EVGA RTX 2060 KO.
Which would you go with and why. Keep in mind the last time this system was upgraded was 4 or 5 years ago, and probably wont be for another 4 or 5 years. That 950 was an rma from a 760!
