  1. A better GPU and 16gb RAM. What make and model PSU do you have? A GTX 1060 or RX 480 4Gb/8Gb would be perfect.
  2. Get a 1060 6 GB or RX 480.

    not sure would probably need to check. however i am pretty sure it'll able to handle gtx 1060 or rx 480 as gtx 660 needs more watts than both of them.

    i am fine with 8gb of RAM, any games need more than that? I am not a heavy multi-tasker.

    MSI AB can tell you that https://www.msi.com/page/afterburner

    https://s5.postimg.org/t4ajhopvb/Far_Cry4_2016_11_08_22_14_29_543.jpg shows a screengrab of Far Cry 4 gameplay at 1080p. I clicked on Settings(gear) on AB's main screen and then I clicked on monitoring. I clicked each resource I wanted to monitor and then I clicked on Show In OSD and clicked OK when I was done. I chose CPU and GPU temperatures and load percentages, System RAM, VRAM(my GPU's memory usage) and my GPU's core and memory clock.
