Hey guys,

I'm looking to upgrade my dated gaming rig so I could play some of the newer stuff like the Witcher 3 (I know it's not new but considering my budget - it is.)

So, here are my specs:

8 GB RAM
GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDRR5
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G
500 GB of HDD memory

I'm having a good time playing games like Civilization but my PC struggles even when running the Witcher 2. What would you recommend I upgrade? My CPU perhaps?

Also, looking for some titles similar to TW3 that you could recommend - perhaps something that I could run right now before I even upgrade my PC.

Thanks, Matty[/list][/list]

So, what do you recommend I upgrade, perhaps get 16 GB RAM or change my CPU?

I've been reading some Reddit threads on the topic and decided to change my CPU. Going through some top 10 lists almost all of them say that i7-8700k should be good enough but I'm seeing that i9-9700 might be better? This article lists both of them but I got a feel that 9700 is too expensive for the value?
