  1. 3. Buy a GTX 1060 3GB, Rx 480 4GB or Rx 580 4GB (depending on the pricing in your area). Use the current CPU until you save up your money. Then buy a used i7-4770 or 4790.
  2. But I couldn't spend money to my PC in the future.
  3. Are you willing to buy used? You could probably get an i5-4670 through i5-4690K and a GeForce GTX 770 4GB within your budget. I'm assuming you are looking at new prices right now.

    Assuming your PSU can handle a GTX 770.
  4. Yeah, the GTX 770 is a bit high card for my PSU, and in my country it's a much expensive in used too.
  5. How do the used prices of the i5 compare to the new prices of the i3? If you could get a used i5 and new GTX 1050. You would have something decent for gaming.
  6. The used i5 is expensive too, sadly. I don't want to play games on Ultra Battlefield 1. I want to play DayZ or ArmA 3, Rainbow Six Siege on Medium graphics settings.
