Hi all,

My current spec can be found here:

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/d3qZNQ

I was wondering what the best course of action would be to upgrade my current specs or replace the lot.

I don't intend on going above 1080p/144hz at the moment and I like the idea of going ITX for that SFF.

Thanks.

Z390 MOBO to avoid BIOS updates

16GB memory, but faster

same SSD as you have now, but 1 TB
