Hi there, I'm kinds stuck with how to upgrade my rig as I'm really not very clued up when it comes to pc hardware. its currently as follows:

Motherboard; Gigabyte GA-F2A68HM-HD2 (it also has FM2+/Fm2 DDR3 written near that)

Processor; AMD A6-6400K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics, 3900 Mhz, 1 core, 2 Logical Processors

Graphics Card; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460, 1Gb ram

PSU; Win Power AD-E500AE-A5/A6 AC OUTPUT; 115V/60hz, 230V/50Hz DC OUTPUT; +3.3V, +5V, +12V1, +12V2, 12V, +5VSB MAX OUTPUT CURRENT; 15A, 18A, 14A, 14A, 0.5A, 2A TOTAL POWER; 500W

HDD; Seagate 1Tb

OS; Windows 10 Home x64bit

I'm looking to be able to upgrade so I can run current games (mainly Star citizen). Not worried about ultra settings really, just want it to be a smooth frame rate. Any upgrade advice would really be helpful and massively appreciated

Thanks in advance :)
