Upgrading my system

Hello, Im new here :hello:

Here are the specs of my pc at the moment:

Machine name: STEVEN-PC
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
System Model: G31M-ES2L
BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.4GHz

Windows Dir: C:\Windows
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
DX Setup Parameters: Not found
User DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent)
System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent)

It is over two years old, and it really is time to upgrade. What I had in mind was a new motherboard, ram and amd processor.

I think I have found what I want on Ebay - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/150734534201?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_5643wt_1110

Can someone please evaluate my decision and my specs and future upgrade compatibility and things to note.

  1. I think the first question to answer is what you really want to get out of your new PC that you're not currently getting?

    Second, I don't know what prices are typically like in the UK, but that kit you've picked is way overpriced for the US if you do the currency conversion. That's maybe a US $200-250 bundle, which would put it at 125-150 GBP max not including shipping.
  2. hmmm, thanks, but tbh I was concerned about what modifications I would need to make before deciding on a product. Price isnt really the deterrent for me here.

    The main reason for my upgrade is to improve the quality of my gaming experience with a step up in performance and speed.
