I need help finding good but cheap parts

 Share

I am currently in the market for some new parts. I will have about $200 to spend and I already have a working computer. I was planning on keeping my graphics card, which is an EVGA gtx 750 ti, and buying a new cpu, motherboard, and potentially ram. I have 8gb of ddr3 1333hz ram but I'd like to upgrade to ddr4. I've been doing my research and am trying to find some good combos but I figured it could help save time if anyone could help. So what am I looking for? I'd like to upgrade my rig to ddr4 while replace my cpu, motherboard, and ram. 

Thanks in advance.

ok what cpu do you have. it might be enough for you to just buy a new gpu. people have got 980ti's for that price.

the ram is probably now worth upgrading unless you want to change the mobo and cpu for a new chipset. but as said its expensive.

you would just need to see if the cpu would bottleneck the GPU

something like this should be fine.

if you have more to spend, get a 2600 with a x370/x470 Msi gaming pro carbon. but that's way above your budget

Thank you LukeSavenije, I'd like to try to aim cheaper but I'll definitely consider that as an option. Acid Panda, I don't know why I would exactly buy a new GPU right now. I don't believe I am having any issues with that. Recently my computer has been randomly shutting off and for some reason boots on the wrong hard drive by default. I'm considering maybe my hard drives are failing too.?‍♂️ I can figure that out later. My CPU is the Intel Core i5 2400 and the motherboard auto clocks it to its max speed of 3.4GHz. The board I bought was a Gigabyte B75-D3V V1.1. If anyone has any other suggestions, then please suggest. 

FYI Im willing to stick with ddr3 if it's not really worth spending $60 on ram.

Pick up a used i7 2600 and a better GPU. Sandy bridge is still very potent, and your GPU is more lacking than your CPU gen.
