Upgrading PC,Help/suggestions needed ~£/$200 budget

Hi everyone!
I'm planning on upgrading my system to a HD 7750(1gb gddr5),550W PSU, a new motherboard(with PCI-E 3.0 support hopefully) and 8gb of ram(1333/1600mhz),but I don't really know how to go about it, so I would like to ask you guys to give me possible components that I could buy that would be compatible with the rest of my system.
My PC specs as of now:
AMD Athlon II x4 640 3.0Ghz
8gb of ram,1333Hz(for some reason it is glued to the motherboard,that's why I'd like more ram)
My motherboard is an ASRock N68C-S UCC
AMD Radeon HD 6670 1gb gddr5
A 450W power supply(I don't know the brand)

If it's possible then please try to find these parts under 200 dollars/british pounds.

Thank you for reading(and hopefully replying :) )
Also, If I posted this in the wrong section I'm sorry,I'm new to these forums.

  1. 8gb of RAM is plenty.

    Get a 500w PSU and the best GPU you can afford.

    I'm just worried becasuse the 7750 uses PCI-e 3 and even though it's backwards compatible,I might not get the results I wanted. Also,shouldn't I get a new motherboard?
    Anyways,thank you for the answer!

    There is no difference between pci 3.0 and 2.0. You will see no performance change in any way at all.

    Keep the motherboard you have.

    Okay,I'll do that. Thank you very much :)
  5. Anytime! Always glad to be able to help. I would suggest you get a better GPU than the 7750. Its still a lower end GPU and will struggle at 1080p. I would suggest a 7770 or gtx650ti.
