.Hi, so my main question is in the title
Im on a budget of 200euro in this month. I usually play low spec games (LoL, Sims), but now i tried gta5 pubg and bf1 and got really dissapointed. I clean my pc from dust, apply thermal paste. Can you advice what makes my pc bad, and if its cpu can you please give me best cpu and motherboard combo, also that will suit future gpu upgrades? Thanks!!

You have a combination of older CPU and GPU. Upgrading both would increase your performance.

You will require new CPU/Motherboard/RAM/GPU.

You could go with a used 4th-gen Intel Core i5 or i7 CPU and motherboard and possibly keep your DDR3 RAM.

Or you could go with a new GPU now, and upgrade CPU/mobo later.

A GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1060 3GB.

Do consider your power supply when upgrading GPU.

I would probably get the GPU now, CPU/mobo later; hopefully having enough for a new CPU/Mobo/DDR4 RAM.

Ok, I can buy 1050ti, but I'm worried that my CPU will bottleneck it. Maybe I should get weaker version of it, like 1050 single fan?

If you don't plan to get a better CPU then yeah that would be okay. But the 1050 Ti would also be okay. Both would experience some bottleneck some times. The 1050 Ti would be better in the future with 4GB vram instead of 2GB.

I would get the 1050 Ti.
