So, the time has come to upgrade my gaming PC. This was build a few years ago with an extreme budget in mind to dabble in PC gaming, and now I am having a few issues keeping up with new games.

Here is my benchmark result: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6605963

With a 300 dollar (or less) budget in mind, what would be your recommendations?

Hello:

First I need to know, what games do you play? How much FPS do you want when gaming?

 

With $300 budget, you can upgrade your video card for better gaming performance, but I need to know what games you play first.


CPU: Intel i7-8700K 5.3 GHz ------ RAM: 32GB TridentZ 3600 MHz CL16 ----- Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus X Formula ----- GPU: Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Amp! Extreme ----- Storage: Samsung 960 Pro 1TB -- Samsung 850 Pro 2TB x4

Right now I'm playing Fallout 4, and I'm noticing huge FPS drops during large shootouts, especially in outside environments.

I'm really quite new to pc building, but 60 FPS seems like a nice target.

This video card is nice, you can get 60+ FPS in Fallout 4 easily. But the CPU might bottleneck the GPU, so I recommend you to upgrade the CPU if possible.
