Hey everyone

I want to upgrade CPU, but don't want to spend much, can you suggest CPU that for this motherboard? Or should I get new motherboard and CPU(and RAM i guess)? I was thinking about buying used parts

I dont want to spend too much, cuz I was saving money for completely new PC, but that is gonna take a long time.

I only play CSGO, COD and Valorant, I don't do anything else on this PC. While Valorant runs more than ok for me, but other two, even CS run poorly.

Thanks for answers, sorry for bad English

CPU support list for your motherboard.  How much are i5's and i7's on that list for you?  Probably an i5 4670/4690 or i7 4770/4790?
