What do you want your PC to do?聽 What does your current rig NOT do that you need it to?

What's your budget?聽 What games, resolution, etc. do you want to play?聽 Do you render video?聽 Do you eat steak rare or medium?

Blue rare please.

Anyway. Back on topic. There isn't much you can "upgrade". FX platform is dead, so you will need a new platform if you want a modern CPU and RAM. B450 is an obvious choice if you need gaming system.

You could use old drives and possibly your PSU.


Main system: i7 8700k 5Ghz / Asus Prime Z370-A / Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3000Mhz / Gigabyte RTX2080 Aorus Extreme / EVGA 750W GQ / Fractal Design Meshify C

I want it for gaming really. I would like to play in 1440p at 60fps with little drop in frame rate.聽

I like to play ARK but my rig Can't seem to handle it without Crashing all the time.

I don't want to spend loads of cash but will spend what I need to to improve it.

I like my steak medium with a drop of peppercorn sauce 馃構

Should be enough to get 60 fps on 1440p games, assuming you have a good power supply, storage, and case.
