hello my old gaming pc is standing in a corner and i got an idea that i can make i little upgrade on it because the gpu is old and cpu but when i have upgraded it i can use it for my friends if we want to play so heres the specs of it

CPU: Core i3 2125
GPU: Zotac GTX 650 TI 2gb ZT-61102-10M
Motherboard ASrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
Memory: Corsair vengeance Pro Blue 2x8gb DDR3-1866Mhz CL9
HDD: Western digital blue 1TB 5400RPM
PSU: OCZ ModXStreamPro 80+ 500W

So im going to get an used i7 2600K and probably an 240gb ssd and in the future i will buy a new psu it has been running for like 5 years so it need to get some rest :)
and i got 6 gpus that i want to but i dont know if they are good but all of these i say if im going to buy onw of them im going ot buy an used but i thinking of rx 570, rx 480, gtx 770 4gb, gtx 960 or an gtx 970

RX570 represents the best value in the used market, generally.
You can find them new for ~$120, so used you should be able to find them for ~$75.
An RX470 would be worth considering too, if you can find one.

It'll all depend on cost, of course. If you can find a 480 or 580 for similar money, there's no reason not to pick on of those up.

A 960 is fairly obsolete these days, and I wouldn't spend much on them.... And 970s, for whatever reason still regularly command used prices >$100, although you can find them for ~$75 on occassion.

and roughly 1 year ago I bought 4x RX570's for $220 CAD ($150ish USD)..... Doesn't have any relevance today though if it's not repeatable.

If you can find a 970 for a really good deal, then that changes things, of course.
Worldwide, there's not an abundance of GTX970's going for <$50. If you can find one for that kind of price, it's a great deal.

We can only recommend in general terms, unless you can tell us "I found X, Y and Z GPUs available for X, Y and Z prices"
