Your question before hitting submit but you did so Ill give you an answer.

 

We need more specifications here.

 

Your system is ancient and for now the only reusable part is the 970.

 

What case do you have?

What storage do you have?

What psu do you have (not just wattage the EXACT model)?

I just saw the title update it is a optiplex 980.

 

So all that can be reused is storage and the gpu (maybe psu if you changed it).

 

Your budget is too low to get you a better system.

You'd need a new cpu, ram, board, psu AND case to be able to upgrade just the cpu. Because this system has very few reusable parts.

 

So pretty much a budget of about 450 will do the trick.

Srry for accusing you as a spammer, cause it seems like most spam accounts just post the default msg thingy or whatever you call it followed by a random topic name
