Additional Comments: I'm wondering if I should upgrade this computer, if possible, what I would need to upgrade, or if I should save up a little more and get a new one. Also wondering if I could upgrade again in the future.

If I upgrade price range is 300-500
If I buy new it's 500-750

And btw I only need this computer to run for about 3-4 years, so I'm leaning towards upgrading the Processor, GPU, PSU, and whatever else you feel is necessary to be able to play most of the games out already, on around medium, smoothly.
