    Hi. As the title says, does my PC need to upgrade anything?
    The Specs are as follows,

    i5-2500
    16gb Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3
    H80i AIO cooler
    GTX 1060 3GB Asus Dual
    1tb HDD
    250gb Samsung Evo SSD
    Razer Ornata Chroma
    Logitech G502 mouse

    is there anything in my build that i should upgrade? or should i stay in this current build for now?

    You don't need to upgrade anything unless your keyboard/mouse/headphones stop working.
    The first thin you will need to upgrade is your CPU but it will run the latest games for another 3/4 years.
    Until then don't wast money upgrading, save it and buy a brand new PC when you really need to.

    Depends on your budget. If you have not much money then I dont see any upgrades which will bring significant improvement.
    But if you have more money, then the order of upgrading should be:
    1. replace your whole CPU + Mainboard + RAM to an i7 Coffe lake/Ryzen 7 (total ~ 800$)
    2. upgrade your VGA to 1070/1080/1080Ti
    3. a better cooling system for OC if you want to. AOI is in general worse efficient than air coolers. Custom loop water cooling is quite expensive and hard to maintainance.
    You also can sell your old parts for quite a good amount of money, but this depends on where you are.
