    Yep, it seems like after a little bit of fiddling, windows fixed them itself

    Hate to say I told you so, but an i7 2600 would have negated all this bullshit. Why post on forums just to ignore advice from folks that have already walked this road?

    Tyat is very decent cpu so good choice 
    I usually not recommend buying second hand ssds , you never know what ppl was doing with them and how long it’ll last but still it’s not too bad so ok ? 
     
    Well like I mentioned before , blower style cards are usually running hot and loud but still good choice ? 
     
    Another 8gb of ram will put you in the sweet spot , 16gb is good amount to have, some games using more than 8gb specially if you have some programs running in the background

    Cool. The motherboard just arrived and I'm starting to put it all together. I'll keep you updated.

    For used GPUs RX480(80$ish) or R9 Nano(100$) are your friends, alternatively for Nvidea the 970(80-90ish$) will be your friend, if you had 200+ to spend on used GPU and a good PSU then a used Vega are apparently really fun to tweak, usually undervolting core and overclock the HBM VRAM being the beez knees with any of AMD GPUs with older power hungry architecture, but gifted with HBM VRAM.  If that sorta tweaking sounds fun but 200$ is too much then that is why i mentioned R9 Nano.  Problem with cards that use HBM(2) is they were often very popular for mining, which by itself isn't the worst, but likely means they could come with vbios setup for mining and even if you can install correct vbious sometimes they'll just konk out after the fact.  With any of these cards get atleast a decent 80+ Bronze 450W power supply, usually can find them 45$.

    Can you overclock with motherboard that came with thinkcentre?  I wouldn't imagine not with most OEM sourced boards, not sure what board came with it though.  If you want to use that motherboard and it can't overclock i'd highly recommend a 3770 over a 3570k, the extra threads help alot for reducing stuttering in modern games that often look for more then 4 threads. 

    Actually, i used to have a 3570 (none K, 3.8ghz iirc, paired with 1050ti i regret purchasing instead of rx570) and honestly i'd just go with a 3770 even if you can't overclock it because the stuttering can be a real problem, especially with games that use newer graphics engines (DX12 in particular.), no point in pushing high frames in a FPS if quickly looking around side to side causes huge, intermittent, frame-rate dips.

    I7 2600 would be a safer bet on an OEM board that came with Sandy bridge. There may be no bios for ivy bridge.
