    Your CPU is ok for now. You could upgrade but in my opinion for the money it wouldn't be worth it until the next gen price lowers a bit. The GPU is not terrible either but is really the only obvious upgrade I can see other than maybe larger SSD.

    If you want to game at 1080P then GTX 1060 or 1070 or Radeon 580 /Vega 56. 1070 or Vega 56 will go up to driving 2k monitors.

    Monitors are complicated because if you go AMD or Nvidia there is FreeSync or Gsync...
    YouTube, it takes over your mind and guides you to strange places like tutorials on how to talk to a giraffe.

    Thank you very much Ichon! I'll go for the GTX 1070 and indeed a larger SSD is also a good idea, been struggling with space on it.
