    Thumbs up Upgrading Cheap PC

    Hey guys, heres the situation. My main rig is going to be out for a few weeks as I am getting new watercooling and I also just need a decent spare pc.
    I want to upgrade this PC that I have to a new case and PSU (Maybe Cpu and gpu but theres not much point)
    The system is a Dell Optiplex 790 SFF
    Specs:
    i5-2400
    14GB Ram (yes 14 lol 3x4gb 1x2gb)
    Dell MOBO (Not sure of size)
    GTX 750 Ti, Low profile but I have the full profile bracket so thats np.
    80+ Gold 250w PSU From Dell, Proprietary Dell size as the case is small
    120GB Sandisk SSD Plus
    1TB Seagate HDD

    I would love some cheap upgrade suggestions. theres no budget but under AU$120 would be good
    Keep in mind its AUSTRALIA so prices are different and so is availability.
    FYI I dont mind buying used parts

    Thanks

    Upgrade your PSU and GPU.
    You can get a decent PSU for around $70-$90. Get a used GPU if u can, I got a used 970 for $350. (only used for 3 months)
    The prices is in CAD, I'm not too sure about the Australian market. GL!

    hahaha the RAM though. and never save up on a PSU, it's the most important part to power the beast up.
