    Some advices on upgrading.

    Hi guys, i want to upgrade some parts of my computer which i've bought 3-4 years ago. I'd like some advices from you guys on how can i upgrade my system, i don't have a big budget, and i don't have to change all the parts, maybe just GPU if thats gonna be enough, my main goal is to play Fallout 4 in around 40-50 FPS. Thanks for all the advices in advance, have a nice day!


    GPU: GeForce GTX 650
    CPU: Intel Pentium G3220 @ 3.00GHz
    Memory: 8.00 GB RAM
    Storage: 1TB HDD

    Any chance you could be slightly more specific on your budget?

    GTX 970 for a new GPU. If you have ANY money at all left over upgrade that CPU to a i5 or i7. Best of luck. GPU is #1 Priority though.

    I searched the one you adviced, it comes for around 480$ that is past me :/ But i can afford either one of these;

    -MSI GTX960 GAMING GDDR5 2GB 128Bit Nvidia GeForce DX12 = 227$
    -MSI GTX950 GAMING 2G GDDR5 2GB 128Bit Nvidia GeForce DX12 = 197$

    Get the 4GB GTX 960. That's a great cheap card as well. You can find one on Newegg for 229$

    GTX 950 is nice card for extream low budget, and you need really to change the CPU (maybe i5) .

    Well unless I am mistaken, the Intel Pentium G3220 is only a dual core CPU. Therefore I would have to recommend upgrading that before anything else. The problem with CPU upgrades however is that unless you can find one that uses the same socket as your current CPU you will have to change out your motherboard as well.

    What motherboard do you currently have?

    Also just having an early look over things I'd say to got with:
    CPU: i5 4460 @ $179
    GPU: Sapphire R7 370 @ $170

    Actually, this is all i have currently;


    CPU

    Intel Pentium G3220 @ 3.00GHz
    Haswell 22nm Technology

    RAM

    8,00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)

    Motherboard

    Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. H81M-S2PV (SOCKET 0)

    Graphics

    Philips 226V4 (1920x1080@60Hz)
    42W_LCD_TV (1920x1080@30Hz)
    Intel HD Graphics (Gigabyte)
    2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 (ZOTAC International)

    Storage

    I'm trying to expand my budget to 350$. And i'm also trying to check local stores for the prices, That CPU is about 220$ here... :/ (Taxes included) But i'm thinking on buying from Amazon or Ebay. That might be cheaper.

    I'm from Turkey, 1$ = 2.9 Turkish Liras, but these prices are very wavy, it comes back to 2.6 or 2.7, i'm gonna try it when it hits something like that.
