New motherboard, ram and processor.

 

Take a look at a setup like an R5 2600, B450 motherboard and 16GB of 3000mhz memory.

Take my opinion with a grain of salt since I am not familiar with older hardware, but you could get an i7-4790K if you have an unlocked motherboard. That is if you don't want new RAM, Motherboard and CPU.

He said his budget is $300-400. He cannot afford all of that.

Never said to buy all of it. Tbh he could just buy the i7-4790k and it’d be so much better.

It would really help if he had an unlocked motherboard so he can push it with an adequate cooler.

 

Edit: Looks like his MB is unlocked.

1070 or 1070 ti

With that old quad core? I foresee a bottleneck

 

@thybarbam how about an i7 4770 off eBay and a GTX 1060 6GB? While you're at it, get a matching pair of DDR3, since it seems like you either have an 8GB and a 4GB dimm, or three 4GB dimms, so you are losing out on dual channel.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Yes. A Ryzen 2600 will serve you well.
