i dont have any plans to upgrade to a new mobo and replace my ram and cpu, i know that this platform is old but pls don't judge and give me your best answers. I know that i5 is a good step up or even R 3 2200G but i don't have the money for the ram and motherboard i know i can wait and save but given my gaming needs I don't see a reason to upgrade to AM3/4 or intels cpus.

PC SPECS:
MOBO:
A68HM E33 V2
CPU:
A6-7480
GPU:
RX 560
RAM:
TEAM GROUP ELITE 4GB DDR3(2x)

Based on BIOS support, A8 7680 is pretty much the best it will support. Be sure to update to 7721v85 first. That gets you two more cores for 4 total and a better iGPU which is immaterial since you're using an RX560 dGPU.
