Extreme Budget Gaming PC for 1280x720p

Good evening.

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

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.

Thank you!

Looks like a typical PC Master Race build.

Nothing wrong with it

It will be a nice bump up from where you are.

Once you get it built with all the proper drivers you will soon figure out how far you can push game features and still get the kind of fps you want.
