Most importantly:
Faster GPU
RAM to 16gb,

Then a decent size ssd for your games. crucial mx500 model for example. Though i recommend at least 1tb these days. This isnt absolutely necessary like the first two.

I dont think $150 is enough. Save more and make it worth it.
If youre being thermally throttled, sort it out. Not sure on cheap coolers. I say just cough up & get a high end Noctua and practically run it for life. System after system. Theres plenty of people running D14s for approx 15 years. There is no end in site. Nocuta will send you mounting kits for future socket revisions anywhere in world for free. They outperform loads of water coolers ( & how long do they last? lol)

Meanwhile, so much cheap trash in the landfill. (with a greater cost of ownership).
