I would suggest you get a better GPU now and upgrade that CPU later down the road.



Can u tell us which country and city you live in so we can help u choose the components.

Ok so your CPU is fine. If you want to upgrade your CPU then you will have to get a new motherboard. Meanwhile I selected some components that you should upgrade:


Video Card: MSI Radeon R9 270x http://www.komplett.ie/product/zkb-01com/20213604/msi-radeon-r9-270x-gaming-2g-pci-e/details.aspx


Ram : ( I suggest you buy 2 sets of this ram so it equals 8gb. i couldnt find any corsair ram so you cant use your ram and couple it with this one )
Crucial 4gb http://www.komplett.ie/product/zkb-01com/20187449/crucial-4gb-pc3-12800-dimm/details.aspx


Total Price: 214.40 euros.



P.S : I suggest you upgrade your cpu as soon as you can as it will affect your gaming perfomance.

Yeah its a very good CPU. Nice choice. But if u buy this cpu, you will have to compensate on your gpu. IF you plan to buy this cpu, then, considering your budget, this card is your best bet:

ASUS Radeon R7250X-1GD5 - 1GB - PCI-E http://www.komplett.ie/product/zkb-01com/20247092/asus-radeon-r7250x-1gd5-1gb-pci-e/details.aspx






However, I suggest this:

CPU : http://www.komplett.ie/product/zkb-01com/20206020/amd-a-series-a8-6600k-3-9ghz-socket-fm2/details.aspx


Video Card : http://www.komplett.ie/product/zkb-01com/20249038/asus-radeon-r7265-dc2-2gd5-2gb-pci-e/details.aspx



OR if u can afford this:
