Help with Upgrading PC (Ideas)


Aug 23, 2014
Hey guys. So I'm looking for the cheapest option for upgrading and gaining overall performance and handling the newest games. I really dont want to upgrade CPU cause then id have to also buy a new motherboard but any input on that is helpful to. I know its not a great PC at all but thats why im here :)

CPU: FX-8350 (does this still qualify as decent?)
GPU: GTX 760 (important upgrade)
RAM: 12GB 1866Mhz DDR3
Mobo: Asrock Extreme3 970 (I know.)
Hardrive: 1TB WD Blue (maybe SSD?)

Keep in mind it needs to stay pretty cheap. Not 700$ in upgrades.

Any help its greatly appreciated!
