Upgrading computer / bottlenecking Please help!

Hello i current have an 4 year old gaming computer and want to upgrade my processor/cpu, unfortunately i do not know much about computers and would like your help! My current specs are
Nvidia 9800 gt
4 GB ram
Pentium (R) Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60 GHz
Socket 775LGA
Bios: American Megatrend Inc. V2.5
Model: p43 Neo3 (MS-7514)

Again i am trying to figure which processor fits my computer and which would be the best to upgrade to with the price range around 100-200 dollars. Thank you !

I would also like to know whats a good video card to get for the e5300 without bottlenecking my computer

  1. You should upgrade to new cpu+mobo instead of lga 775 i3 3220 + asus b75 mobo i suggest.any good gpu with bottleneck with your e5300cpu.if you want gpu for your current cpu then get hd 7750.
  2. Hey ! thanks for the prompt response! Unfortunately, i do not have enough money for Mobo + Cpu so i was just thinking of getting either a CPU + graphics card or just a graphics card itself.

    Do you think this will bottleneck with my E5300?
    GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16
