Which intel processor should I buy with ddr3 ram support and below 130$ budget? Preferably 2nd or 3rd gen.
I am upgrading my CPU from i3 530 (2.93) and a GT 1030. Please advice?

I am in India

Hi,

A person that have knowledge of the India market prices it will be more likely to answer more appropriately your question.

I can only give you some indicating directions.

First your current CPU indicates that your motherboard has a LGA 1156 socket and thus it can't support 2nd or 3rd gen. CPUs.

The other thing is that I can't understand if the 130$ budget includes the buy of GT 1030 or it is only for the CPU.

With 130$ you can find a LGA 1155 M/B + an Intel i7 2600K or a 3770K CPU as used parts but in the country I live (not India), so I don't know if these prices apply also to your country.

Or you could go with the same budget for a used AM4 mobo + AMD CPU like a Ryzen 3 1200 + 8 GB 2666GHz RAM.

If you don't change your motherboard you will only be able to use 1st gen chips.

What exact motherboard do you have?

You probably can chuck in an I7 920 or simmilar for a tiny cost that will deliver pretty alright performance.
