  1. what resolution do you play on?

    Also, I would probably save the money until you can upgrade both at the same time.
  2. definitely gpu, the i3 6100 can handle the rx 580/gtx 1060 fine.
    itll help at any resolution.

    update: personally i recommend the rx 580, at least the ones that are clocked high.
    this one for example is 250 euros and perfoms better than the 1060; https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150796&cm_re=rx_580-_-14-150-796-_-Product

    at 1080p you're looking for a GTX 1060 or relative equivalent. The problem is that the 1060 (and most cards around this level) are going to be bottlenecked by your i3. I can't speak for the 580, as a user above recommended, but you won't get what you want out of the 1060 if you upgrade to it while on the i3-6100.

    Right now, your i3 and 760 work well together, but if you're set on upgrading one or the other now, 1060 or equivalent is the way to go I think.
