Hi All,

I had a PC build for myself a few years ago and now want to upgrade it without buying a new one.

The Specs:
CPU: AMD FX 6300 Black Edition
RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600mhz (1x8GB)
Graphics card: NVIDIA� GeForce�
GTX 950 2GB
Motherboard: Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3
Operating System: Windows 10 Home
(64-bit)
Hard Drive: 1TB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s
Case: CIT Dragon3 Black with Red Led Fan
PSU: 450W Corsair VS
Internet: Wireless 802.11N 300Mbps MIMO
PCI card

Id like it to catch up to todays gaming but at a reasonable cost

Any recommendations would be great

Thank you

To make it really worth upgrading you will need to change everything out, your RAM won't work with new motherboards, the motherboard won't take any newer CPUs, power supply is lower quality.

I'd sell the system you have, you will probably get about $200-250 for it, and put that money towards a new system.

I'd get this for now, reuse the HDD/Case/GPU & Wifi.

Sell the rest and save up for a GPU upgrade like the 1650 Super or better. Be sure to do a clean install of Windows+drivers on the SSD and use the HDD for storage.
