Hello,
a friend of mine wants me to uprgade his old prebulit system (specs below) 'cuz it seems slow to him and takes a lot of time to boot the pc, etc. He only use it for working with MS Office, watching movies and listening to music or playing some older less demanding games.

Pentium G2030 (w/iGPU)
ASUS H61M-F mobo (which according to ASUS web can run better CPU's like i3, i5 or i7)
1x4GB DDR3 RAM
1TB SATA HDD
"Eurocase" PSU of poor quality

I'm thinking about adding another stick of RAM, 120GB SSD where OS would be installed, perhaps a better CPU of same generation (i5-2XXX or 3XXX) and for that CPU probbably better cooler and a better PSU of course (I think 350-400W is good enough).

Are these uprgades good and what are your thoughts and what would you reccomend? Will be the PC fast enough or am I supposed to get also a GPU?

Thanks for your answers.
