Should I upgrade my existing PC?

  [DELETED] 15:34 18 Nov 2018

Hi, my current computer is 6 years old. The SSD recently died so it is currently running from the HDD.

I ran UserBenchmark on it. This is what it looks like currently? click here I right in thinking it would be worth investing in a new graphics card, SSD and RAM? There is nothing fundamentally wrong with the motherboard / CPU right?

I am not sure what I am doing. I am not sure whether the PSU is powerful enough to upgrade the graphics card. I am not really sure what I should be getting. I am looking to spend around £400 if upgrading to make it reasonably good. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to start?

if you are thinking of changing that many parts I would suggest you buy a new one and use what you have now as a test bed for downloads so that you don't mess up a new pc.

I have been down the same road as you , upgrading is a cash cow x does not work with y and the £££££ just never end. after 6 years of loyal use just use what you got as a spare to stop crap going on your new one.
