Hello,

 

I have the following components

Motherboard: ASUS Prime B250M-K

Procesor: i5-7400 @ 3.00 GHz

GPU: NVidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

RAM: 8 GB 

PSU: Energon 550W

 

I only have on monitor, witch I am planing to upgrade to this one: LED IPS ASUS 21.5", Full HD, HDMI, VZ229HE

 

My budget is about 300 euros, so please tell me what can I do to upgrade my PC. I play just a few games, like World of Tanks and World of Warships, but I would like to try something like PUBG.

how about a 24 inch 1080p monitor instead... 21,5 is so small.

 

Is it 300$ counting the monitor? or you have 300$ to throw on the system? your main bottleneck is the GPU but with 300$ the best you can do is a second hand 980 Ti with good enough luck and the i5 7400 may bottleneck it some depending how CPU demanding the game is.

Considering the 7400 is a pretty fine CPU
I'd recommend a better GPU.
For 300 bucks you might be able to get a used 1070 or 980 Ti
both will be much faster than your current card.
What is that PSU? Never heard of that brand.
RAM could be fine but it all depends on the games. I can speak for neither WOT, nor WOWarships, nor PUBG.
What is your region? It will be a big factor in terms of availability and prices.

Not familiar with that PSU as well. Are you already using an ssd?

I forgot to mention that. I have a Kingston SA400S 240GB SSD

300 euros just for parts, monitor not included

I live in Romania, and the secondhand market is not that great. I know 300 euros (that's about 340$) is not much for an upgrade, but that's all I have now. I'm hoping to get some advice and find something cheap on Black Friday.

Upgrading the psu would be top of my list. Something like an 80+ Bronze Corsair CX550 or Cooler Master MasterWatt 550 would be reasonable.

 

For better gaming, upgrading the gpu would be top of the list. You should be able to move up to a GTX 1060 6GB.

 

 

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
