Cruise over to https://www.reddit.com/r/PCMasterRace/wiki/builds and you find this build over and over.
I'm looking to update some of my PC parts, as the tittle says, I'm looking for affordable pieces that give me a better performance than my current build. My monitor doesn't go beyond 1080p, so I don't aim at VR capable hardware or 4k resolution.
I'm just looking for something that can help me run AAA games at a decent quality in stable 60fps.
Next I will list my current specs followed by the pieces I was planning to upgrade.
CPU: AMD FX-6300 (No OC)
MOBO: Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3
RAM: Ballistix Sport 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3
GPU: EVGA 750 Ti 2GB
PSU: EVGA 500W
My suggested upgrade hardware for my budget purposes
CPU: Intel Pentium G4560
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-B250M-DS3H
RAM: Corsair 8 GB 3000 MHz DDR4 (2 x 4 GB)
GPU: 1050 Ti 4gb
I'm planning to upgrade to intel since the FX chipset is dead. That way, at least I could have an upgrade path if I ever want to get an i7 for example.
I'm eager to hear more suggestions, and I'd like to know how this build would work.
