500$ Upgrade

Hello, :hello:

Want to add some fresh parts to my current rig,

I will keep PSU(VX450W corsair), HDD, and Graphic card(3850hd but its enough for me atm, eventually will change to
7750 or 7770 probably)

I want to buy new cpu, motherboard and ram.


Here is what i picked currently;

CPU - 3570k

COOLING - SilentiumPC / Fortis HE1225 (very popular and recommended in my country)

MOTHERBOARD - Gigabyte Z77-d3h Motherboard ( not sure here, but I dont need any SLI or extra ports, just curious about OCing, if it would be enough to squeez around 4,2ghz, if not then I would probably aim for Z77X-D3h much cheaper than Z77-extreme4 in my country)

RAM - 16gb of low profile ram (dont know which one exactly)

I need strong machine for multitasking, Im not much of a gamer - just old games or new but not demanding, currently sitting on 775 e2160 dual core and it's running really slow sometimes :(

Hope you can help me out with my doubts! :)
Budget is 500$

  1. Hmmm this upgrade shouldn't cost you $500, unless parts are a lot more expensive in your country. Also you should be able to get 4.2 ghz.
