MB: Sabertooth 990fx
CPU: amd fx-8370
GPU: 1080 ti waterforce
RAM: 24gb ddr3

I bought this stuff about 2 months ago, the gpu today. I should researched more, because I can't upgrade that much with a socket type that is 10 years old. I want to upgrade, but idk what to get for a price that won't break the bank. I'd like to game on it and use it for regular work.

Except for the GPU, you're looking at a whole different system.

Whats your budget?
You'll need ram, cpu,,cooler, & motherboard.
my budget right now would be $300. I could definitely push it further, but its just a thought right now since I bought my current set-up fairly recently. I might have to wait a while till the market finally calms down

Why?
because this was a big step-up from what I had previously.

Right.
But that money could have been added to the 300 you're talking about now, for a system that is viable in 2021.

It is what it is. And there really isn't any up for that, on that platform.
idk if you missed the part where I said "I should've researched more" but like I said.. I should've. thanks for the help :|
