This was actually pretty difficult.
If you want a new CPU, you have to get a new mobo, if you get a new mobo, you need new ram, and you obviously want a better GPU.
You should be able to play most games on high/ultra settings with 30+ Fps.

Ya I know I know about the cpu, mobo, and RAM. they are the main thing of what I need to upgrade they are I think close to 3+ years old. I do know hardware pretty well just don't have much time to look up parts. thank you this suggestion looks great.
