.. nice gaming machine: fully equiped, everything is already "on-board", nothing to add.
I think the GTX 860M has still enough power even for the latest games...

my second gaming laptop (msi GE60-2PE) has similar equpment:
GTX 860M, i7, SSD 256GB (crucial M500), HDD 500 GB, display 15 inch....

my first gaming laptop: msi GT72-2QD here on MT forum

What processor does this have?, your ram upgrade how much better or faster now?
It's an old laptop from 2015 with an Intel Core i5-4210H processor.
Making sure your ram works in dual channel (2 x8 = 16GB) let's everything run just a bit more fluent.
An SSD as bootdisk is also highly recommended.
For both upgrades it is difficult to say how much faster things are, but you will absolutely notice them.

Love the large (17,3") matte IPS display and the backlit keyboard.
Those are things I would look for should I buy another laptop.
