Solved! PC Upgrade Suggestions

Hey Guys, I'm currently running this hardware:

i5-4460 @ 3.2 GHz
GTX 1060 6GB
16GB DDR3-2133 RAM
Asrock H97 Anniversary Edition LGA1150 Motherboard
EVGA 750w Platinum PSU

I've noticed my PC is starting to slow down by a decent amount (need to reformat). Multitasking is become really hard to do and I'm noticing continually decreasing performance in games that I play. When I'm getting lag spikes in fortnite that's when I know that somethings' up. I know that reformatting would probably help quite a bit, but I'm thinking, if I'm going to reformat, why not just upgrade my shit at the same time.

My PC is mostly 2014/5 hardware. My GPU and RAM are relatively new, but 16gb of ram is starting to not cut it anymore.

I'm considering going for this setup:

i7-8700 (non-K) 3.2 GHz w/ 6 cores
G.Skill - Trident Z RGB 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3000
Gigabyte - B360 AORUS Gaming 3 WIFI ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

I don't think I need a new GPU, unless you guys think a 1060 6GB will be a bottleneck.


But with those new components I hope to see a good improvement with multitasking (I usually need to have a few, relatively light applications open at once). I also hope to see somewhat of an improvement in games like Rust, but I know my 1060 will be the weakest link.

I have the money to upgrade my GPU, but, I kinda want to wait a bit, as 1060 is OK for me right now.

1060 is completely fine for now. If it makes it more affordable, I’d suggest getting 16 instead of 32 GB of ram, but unless you multitask with high end programs, then 32 will be better.
