Allright, I have a 400 dollar budget to upgrade my existing rusting pc. What I want my upgrade to do is improve my pc's multitasking and quality and fps in games (gaming is the most important thing). Right now my current build is this:
For the Gpu, I was thinking a card on the nvidia GTX 500 line, and maybe a small amount of the money for a 500 watt psu. For the Motherboard, and Cpu, the Motherboard supporting at least one pci-e 2.0 slot, atleast 16 gb of ram capacity, supporting intel core series and atleast one usb 3.0 port. (I know I have t upgrade my ram, but it'll probably be some cheap one gig for the moment). The CPU that I am aimign for is a Quad core i5 @ around 3 Ghz. Can you, the community help me determine if I should get a Gpu + psu or Mobo + CPu package, and then what products specifically?
Also, these are the games that I play:
Source Engine Games
Battlefield 2:Bad Company 2
Games that I wish my upgrade can play:
Far Cry 2

I will continue to upgrade other components When I get more money, and this might be on for a few years if the new components do not break. And if this upgrade that I am looking for seems to become obsolete in a very short time, can you recommend a better upgrade?
