So lately i've been wanting to upgrade my GPU & CPU to something for tolerate for modern games.
My current setup is a Core2Duo E7500 and the Q45/Q43 chipset (used to use the GT 210 but it overheated and the heatsink broke)

What's a good upgrade since i want a GT1030, but bottleneck says otherwise. But that card is also somewhat bogus. So what CPU and GPU can i use that supports my system.
I don't know my mobo number or model, but i do know that my PC is a Lenovo 7360C12. Can i get some help?

Edit: I'm trying to play roblox games at 60 fps on meduim settings 1360x768

I really can't say if it is gonna help, but just finding a cheap 2nd hand GTX 1030/750/560 should make sure your cpu is not bottlenecked... It should run Roblox, but I don't know if it will run fine or "just run".

Definitely don't spend more than 30$ on it.

I wouldn't spent money to update a PC so old. It is better to wait until you have a sufficient budget to buy a used system at least eight years old with an intel i5 LGA 1150 or an older i7 LGA 1155 and for GPU at least an GTX 750 ti.

Both Q45 and Q43 are LGA 775 and should support Core 2 Quad CPU. It's best to find the exact make/model of your motherboard to verify compatibility prior to buying.

I still have 2 computers in my house running LGA 775 motherboards. My CPUs are E8400 (Core 2 Duo) and Q9550 (Core 2 Quad).

Ebay has some pre-owned Q9550 for about $25.
