  1. it's fine.
    I'd upgrade in that order:

    GPU > SSD > 16GBRAM
    with the PSU being the big question mark as it is way overpowered with 750W but lower quality so it's hard to say how it reacts to new components. seen several people who connected a new GPU and the PSU started to fail, many people where it was just fine.
  2. What Nvidida GPU would you recommend upgrading too, I haven't been keeping up with the latest stuff that much but was looking at a MSI GTX 1060?
  3. Best answer
    depends on your budget and when you're looking to upgrade next

    a 1060 will max out all current games at 1080p/60Hz
    if you say you don't need to game at ultra settings or going to upgrade the GPU in 12-16months again anyway it's the best buy
    if you look for a GPU that will last you 5 years and still output okayish frames in 4-6 years, or if you plan on upgrading your display in the near future to 2k or 4k even you gotta go bigger, like a 1070 or a 1080

    from what I've heard the MSI GTX 1060 Gaming (X) is a nice card
    I suggest a 6GB 1060 for your current setup, it looks like the reasonable decision
