    Thank you.
    But does the 1050 fit my old processor? (I guess its not a perfect fit but how bad will the bottlenecking be)

  3. Not to much as my thuban is just a bit faster and works great with my R9 280. The 1050ti is about the same performance as my R9 280 so should work great together. This said a 1060 will be bottlenecked to much so the 1050ti is ideal.

    How about my memory? I think its too low what should i replace/add to it?
    And can i get more opinions?

    You definitely need more memory to play modern games without stuttering. I highly recommend at least 8gb :)

    The 1050Ti will fit and will help immensely with gaming performance in older games. In new games you'll be bottlenecked by the CPU though. But over all it will boost your frames :)

    Yes get a 8GB stick and later you could get another to max out 16GB limit of the motherboard.

  9. Is there a decent processor to improve my pc if i get that gpu, in 150$ max?

  10. Nope but you could try overclocking as the motherboard supports upto a 3.7Ghz Phenom II X4 980. I wouldnt suggest buy a new CPU for that motherboard. You should save up and get the new AM4 with Ryzen. A Ryzen 5 1600 would make a huge step up.

    Use that great PSU, case, old drives, and other parts. buy it when you can either the video card first or the CPU, RAM, and motherboard.

    1. And what about cooling? I have a cooler that i didnt mention cause i cant remember the model and im not near the computer. Do i need to cool the system with te new gpu?

    2. And what about the rx470 instead? Will it work with the other parts you gave me?

    3. Can i add the gpu and the 8ram together before i add the processor and motherboard? Cause i dont think i have the money rn for the processor and motherboard but i want good ram.

  16. The CPU comes with the stock Wraith cooler thats on par with Cooler Master 212. Most can overclock the CPU with that cooler to 3.7~3.8Ghz. A cooler a step up is the Cryorig H5 or Noctua U12s either costling $50~60.

    Bit miners are buying up all the 470, 480, 570, and 580's. I cant find any in stockfor less than $500 which they are not worth that for gaming.

    The RAM is DDR4 so no but the video card should work on your current system.

    Here is a lower budget build for about 100 less. Its a quad core Ryzen but try to get the 6 core 1600 if possible. The 2 extra cores is a step up in most all games.

  17. Thank you! I will get the 6 core..
    Maybe i will take the 1060 instead of the 1050, I will wait for the prices to settle down.

  18. Is it posibble to put the motherboard memory and gpu you gave me but still be with the old processor? Cause I dont think i can buy it rn..
    Reply to Otethio
  19. Nope. Its an AM3+ CPU. Only the AM4 Ryzen works in the AM4 socket for now. Soon tho AMD will launch the Ryzen APU's. You should either buy the GPU and use the old system or buy the new motherboard, CPU, and RAM and use your old video card.
