PC upgrades

Posted (edited)

Budget (including currency): Would like to use around 400€ to 500€ on it at max

Country: Finland

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I will use it for gaming and scrolling trough social media.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I am wanting to upgrade my current prebuilt pc. I am thinking of getting 3060 for it in the future but I see the current parts as a bottleneck. (As well as sort of low quality) So what I do need is new cpu, motherboard, a ram kit, a new M.2 ssd As well as a new PSU. So again something that will be ready for the RTX 3060 I am planning to get after that. Was hoping to get part suggestions for that. Hopefully the budget is enough for that.

 

(Edit) In case you are wondering my current pc has an i5-7400, 8GB of 2400mhz ram, gtx 1060 3GB and 500W psu and the ssd is starting to grow old by now so need a new one. The case is acer aspire case. The prebuilt pc was acer aspire GX-781 so new case would be fine if possible in the price range.

So basically you are building a whole new PC and not really upgrading the one you currently have. I'm not really seeing that you're going to be keeping any of your components from your current PC, and I think you shouldn't because you can just sell the entire PC and recoup a few euros.

Thank you. And yes I did notice it is fairly much just me building a new system.

 

Thank you for help. Will keep all this in mind when I get the money gathered up (within a month or 2)
