    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 The socket is also outdated.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.
