Basically I want to find budget way to upgrade my pc, without changing to a new motherboard.

I'm on a budget, so I want to find reasonable/affordable ways to upgrade my pc.

I know it can't be a heavy duty gaming pc, but I'm hoping to find ways to upgrade it to medium level. So I can play some games above the low settings.

If you have any recommendations for other upgrades to improve performance I am more than willing to listen. I am not a hardware geek. Although I have been using computers since 1980.

Thank you for your time.

the cpu is the real limiting factor here. i would honestly recommend buying a new case (if standard form factor boards do not fit in the case) motherboard cpu and ram. i would recommend an AMD Ryzen 3 or Ryzen 5 series chip 8gb of DDR4 ram and a compatible board. probably $400 max.

Can't afford to do that.

Already upgraded graphics card and power supply about a year ago.

Now I want to upgrade the cpu.

But what will fit my existing motherboard?
