Hello! I´ve had my computer for maybe 2 or 3 years now. And for a while, I´ve been wanting to upgrade. But should i upgrade my CPU, GPU or RAM? Or maybe both?
Here´s my specs:
(not a lot of ram): 8 Gb
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz, 3001 Mhz, 4 cores, 4 logical processors.
Graphics card: GTX 1060 3gb

If your FPS drops significantly, it is an indicator that your cpu is the limiting factor, and a cpu upgrade is in order. It is possible that both tests are positive, indicating that you have a well balanced system, and both cpu and gpu need to be upgraded to get better gaming FPS.
