Let's start by the fact that my PC is very low end. My intention is to replace the CPU in it. It has a Intel Core i3-2100 @3.10 GHz 2 core 4 thread Processor, which I would like to swap with a Intel Core i5-2500 processor. I have found this processor on ebay for 35,99 euros+2,99 shipping. Now I know that most of you would say "Just buy a better PC" , but instead I would save this and upgrade it, without spending like 400 euros for a new one. I saw a few videos on YouTube so you don't have to tell to watch them.

I have 100 euros in my pocket right now and I know it's a second generation intel processor but for me just one thing matters, that it can play a few more modern games.

Like I said before , I did watched a few videos on YouTube , like where they put this CPU together with a 1050ti or so ... and it can handle 1080p gaming at 60 fps. Four a few euros this upgrade it's totally worth it for me.

What are your ideals? Proposals? Should I do it?

If this is a prebuilt system make sure you look up the spec sheet from the manufacturer to ensure that the motherboard supports the CPU.  On some OEM machines the board will have limited CPU support, as in what it was shipped with kinda thing.

It also depends on your motherboard. If you can overclock CPU on it, your best bet might be 2500k. Those CPUs are beats and can be overclocked nicely. 

It's also soldered CPU, so overheating shouldn't be such a huge problem.

 

With 100€ to spend, you can't really afford to go with another platform, since it would require new motherboard + cpu and maybe even new RAM.

A ryzen 3 2200g would be a better option 

My Mobo doesn’t support AMD Processors... its LGA 1151 ...

Yes I have checked and it is a prebuilt system. It supports up to a i7-2600 .. I don’t know if I can overclock, but anyway I don’t think that i Will

I can’t put in an intel K processor because my MOBO doesn’t support overclocking. Anyway I don’t think that I will overclock any time , that just doesn’t matter for me.

In that case just go with i5 2500. Seems like decent upgrade for this price.
