I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations as to PC's that I could buy with a that have a good CPU (Preferably Intel) for gaming and ddr4 RAM. I currently have a GTX 1060 (Which I'll probably upgrade sooner or later) but I have a terrible CPU (i7 920) which really isn't cutting it, and my motherboard is only capable of ddr3. If anybody cares It's a Dell studio XPS 435t hand-me-down which I put 16gb of ram in, my 1060 and a new power supply. If anybody could recommend some PC's that i could buy and simply upgrade that would be great.

Nothing crazy priced, but it doesn't need to be too low, probably 500-600ish range
Edit: also it doesn’t need to be intel but their CPU’s are more what I’m familiar with

If You're not a hard, high-end gamer, this is just fine:

Ryzen 2600
B450 mobo
16 GB 3200mhz ram
New PSU (if You need it)

Intel's are quite expensive, comparing to the value You get. You can almost get entire setup on AMD at the price of a good Intel CPU ;-)

Not knowing the make/model of your power supply, I added one in the event yours is not of sufficient quality.
