Hello,

I'm looking for ways to upgrade my Low Level gaming PC but I have no idea where to start.

I bought the PC built to the below specs, except for the Hdd which I added from my broken gaming laptop.

I don't have a large budget and will over time improve all areas. What should be my 1st addition? Any help/guidance will be appreciated.

PC Specs:

CPU: AMD FX 6350 6-Core Processor (3.90 GHz)

GPU: Nvidia GTX 750-ti

RAM: 8GB DDR3 2400MHz

PSU: CiT Active 85 550W Bronze 80+

MOBO: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 6.0

SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250gb

HDD: HGST (HTS541010A7E630) 1TB 5400RPM
 
Used

$150 can find stuff like this

i3 6100 $45-$60
i5 6500 $75-$100
Z170A or H250 boards $35 to $90
8 GB of 2133 DDR4 $60-$80

Plenty of upgrade potential,l M2 SSD's and 10 FPS more as is with just the i3.

1050 TI/1060 3gb/970 GTX/980 GTX all can be found used from $120-$180 and are quite a bit faster than a 750 TI.

Live in the UK. 1st purchase happy to spend around £200 (Around $260). I don't really play online shooters etc. Mostly AAA RPGs, FPS, and Sports games.
