    Default Planning on Upgrading my PC for the holiday

    I have this PC for about 5-6 years, and since the holiday is coming around the corner, I thought I should treat myself a little bit to make my PC perform a bit better. Hmm..My max max budget is around 550, if I could go less, that is always a plus, who doesn't want to save a bit green for themselves.

    I'm not into running everything on max, since I have been running some of the games I played on low for quite some time now, so as long as the game run smooth, it's fine with me. A little bit above the minimum or average setting for modern game should be okay with my budget right?

    Anyway, Here is my spec from CPU-z, I saw this software on another thread, so if there are any information you need, I'll try to find it. And thanks for helping to those who replied to this thread



    Hope for some great feedback and thanks once again

    If you have 550, I would just get a new computer.

    This one is pretty slick for the price with 8GB of RAM.

    Some other options

    Motherboard from the OP.

    Not worth upgrading that anymore, as it doesn't offer PCIe x16. The socket is also outdated.

    You are going to need to build a new computer. Your motherboard is too old for newer upgrades.

    I could give you a list of supplies in what you will need in your build but I am sure anyone else can too.

    To save money you could reuse some of the parts of your computer that you have now.

    If someone doesn't offer advice I might check back and offer my own later.

    Are you going to buy or build a new PC? Upgrading is not a reasonable option for your current computer.
