My current specs are:
CPU- AMD Ryzen 5 1600
GPU- Radeon RX 570
RAM- 16GB
Motherboard- Micro-Star B350 Tomahawk
I don’t know exactly what size my power supply is but I know it’ll be enough for an upgrade

I was wanting to know what I should upgrade on my pc to get better performance on more demanding games.
I don’t want to spend more than $200 or $300
I’m a computer parts noob so any and all help will be appreciated.

Thanks for your time

If this is in the wrong place I do apologize and I know y’all will move it to the right spot.

Your GPU would be more likely to give you some performance if you upgrade. If you are set with AMD graphics cards get a 5700xt or wait till the 6000 series announcement.

I currently run a GTX 1070 and a Ryzen 7 1700x and I run pretty much everything at max. My monitors are my downfall.

It really depends on the resolution of your monitor.

For 1080p, upgrading both your CPU and GPU might be worth it.

For 1440p+ I'd only upgrade your GPU.
