My System Specs

Default Z270 + i3-7100 + 256 GB nvme + 8 GB ram

Hi, i would like a reality check on this combo :
Asus Prime Z270-A
256 GB Toshiba XG5 nvme ssd
8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM
I wanted to upgrade, but i will postpone a bit, for my needs, even what i have right now is pretty much powerful, i am not playing too much, and with the money i could get a larger size ssd or a more powerful gpu (rx470 now). The GPU would be pretty much for Folding at Home, not anything else.
