  1. There is nothing on the AM3+ platform worth upgrading too. Any gains would be minimal. The only real upgrade path is a new platform (cpu/motherboard/RAM).
  2. You're looking at a complete upgrade: CPU, motherboard and RAM.

    I think CPU is not what you should upgrade if you really wish to gain some performance especially in your case.
    There are some FX CPU which outperform your 8300 but I don’t think you will gain that much with respect to the cost you lay on it… if not planning for a full system upgrade then go for the GPU other than that there’s nothing to do with. It is bit outdated by now.

    You don't have to change graphics card, you could plan to do that later if budget doesn't allow for now. What is the rest of your system spec? What is your monitor resolution & Hz? What type of games do you play? What would be the budget for an upgrade?

    I dont know if you know this curency, is Lei
  10. Romanian? Not hard to whip out a calculator.

    2 questions:

    What size motherboard does you care fit?

    What is your PSU?

    As a start this is within your budget if you can get the parts around the same price. On current conversion 3000-4000 Romanian is £570~ to 750~
