Do you have an SSD?

 

That's the best upgrade you can put in a system like that.  Install windows to the SSD And it'll run a lot faster.

 

Otherwise, you're gonna wanna save up a bit more and upgrade the rest of the system at once.  Any upgrades that'd work in that system wouldn't be worth the price.

Yes I have windows on a SSD 120gb with windows 10 loaded on the nice to know I'm not being a complete donut aha. To be honest the pc is relatively quick my main thing with it i haven't got a clue what direction to go in terms of upgrades would you recommend I upgrade CPU and Motherboard together?

trying to be cost effective but also knowing my GPU with need a muscly CPU if i am correct lol.

First:  Quote people if you want them to see your replies.

 

You'd need:
CPU, Motherboard, RAM, and possibly a new case / PSU depending on what's in yours now.

And 500 quid ain't gonna cut it most likely, unless you skim somewhere.

Ahh right still learning

CPU would you recommend going down the AMD route or sticking with intel or is it just personal preference?

 

my PSU is a corsair CX500M 

also thank you for replying you have been a great help 😄

personal preference, both are damned good.

 

You'd probably want to step up past 500W for the PSU.   you'd be cutting it hella close.
