I have a Old PC,with a i3 530 processor,4 GB ram,250 GB Hard Drive

So I was wishing if anyone can chip in some ideas to make it gaming ready

The game I play is Rainbow Six Siege ,I want it to be at 1080p High and 60 FPS

and its also better if the graphics card is also future proof somewhat if i do build a new pc

my budget for the upgrade is 100 $ ,cheers,Thanks

Well any modern somewhat decent GPU will be heavily bottlenecked by the cpu.

You can find a cheap 750ti for like 30-50ish bucks. 

Anything better will probably give you little to performance increase over the 750ti due to the heavy Bottleneck.

pretty sure that impossible

the gtx 750 ti will be limited by the cpu so i think that the most fps you'll get is maybe 50 on the lowest settings.

yeah.............. the only real future proofing is minimum a gtx 1070 card or even a rx 580 card and we bot know you aint getting that for 100 bucks :/ (even a 980 ti is quite good)

Damn, $100, that's a tight budget for upgrading a PC. I would like to ask if the $100 is for the graphics card only or the $100 as in the whole PC.

It's for upgrading the Graphics card,if at all I need to upgrade anything else ,Please suggest.

At $100, you are looking at something like Geforce GTX 1050 or GT 1030, it basically unplayable on high or ultra because CPU bottleneck will give you at least 10 fps less which usually render fps to below 30.

Your best bet is probably to try finding a second hand GPU for cheap, 100 buck is a hard bargain but if you can find a good last gen graphic for cheap, 50 fps isn't that bad for gaming. But really, you should either lower your expectation or increase your budget, you could potetially play on game with that budget on medium or low or 720p resolution

Upgrade the GPU to GTX 1080ti. If you cannot not go for GTX 1070. You can go for GTX 1660ti. You need to upgrade the CPU as well, its looking kinda sad with an 3rd gen i3 so maybe a 9th gen i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600. I would suggest 8 or 16GB of RAM at the speeds of 3000mhz+. You can keep the hard drive the same.

This is just in general on what you should upgrade to, you might need to save up which is fine, I have done it in the past.

if you can find a 1080 ti for 100 dollars, LET ME KNOW!!!!!

but for real, what @FoldingToFightAnyDiseases said is a great upgrade plan BUT it is kinda pricey for you budget.

save your money for now. a 1080 ti is a great value card now but because of that they are still going for 400-600 dollars second hand, so in your case, saving some extra money and getting a 1660 super or something in that range is really good.

we all know that a 3600 is better then a 9600k in terms of price to performance, so try to loot for a 3600 

8gb of ram is really low in 2020 and 16gb is pretty much the minimus these days.

you can game with 8gb but more and more games are starting to take advantage of 16gb of ram and dont forget you have windows installed, probably discord/ts/skype running, steam/epic games/ubisoft/battle.net running, maybe even spotify and hop 90% ram usage in game while the game is just using 30% or 40% of the ram.

my friend has 8gb of ram and while his pc is idling his ram usage is 58% and just steam and discord are running...

so try to look for a good dual channel 16gb kit thats at least 3000mhz cl16 and above

I'm guessing you're not using $, so why put it as your currency of measure?

Prices are hugely different around the world. It makes more sense to put the currency you use.
