Hello Internet,

I'm tired of my machine it weak for gaming after few upgrades through the years, now my question is should i upgrade it or build a new one also im thinking to buy 144hz monitor (must feel that 144hz power)

Specs:
i3-2100 @ 3.1Ghz
4GB RAM
R7 240 2GB
Antec 300W PSU
-
Parts i don't think it worth replacing (if i will build a new pc)
pc case (pretty new although a window case will be sick)
HDD

it cants run new games even gta v, csgo (100 fps / 1024x768 low) let's not talk about MINECRAFT :rolleyes:.
I'm playing like 2 days in a week and i want to enjoy it when i'm playing ...

if im buying new parts for a build my budget it 500$.

Thanks for your help
