Gaming PC Upgrade

Sep 25, 2020

I bought a gaming PC a while back (circa 2018), was a budget PC worth ~USD400 sans the monitor. Have a bit more income now and was hoping to upgrade for my gaming needs, appreciate any advice you can give!

Current build
Gigabyte H110m-D3
Intel Pentium G4560 (3.5GHz)
Galax Nvidia GTX 1050 2gb
Crucial 8GB DDR4 Ram
S4 ATX Case with 700w Techwill PSU
Viewsonic XG2401 1080p 144Hz

Budget Range:
USD 300 - 500

What will your machine be used for?
Gaming - Spellbreak and League of Legends mostly

Thank you!

What's the model of the power supply? It will usually have a label on it with all kinds of info, including the model.

Very often PSUs claiming to be high wattage that are included with cheap cases are trash tier. There's nothing wrong with budget PSUs.. as long as they're not below a certain level e.g. Corsair VS.

Is the monitor 1080p 60hz?

looking on Newegg you could change the cpu to a kaby lake i5 cpu and get a Nvidia GTX 1660 for around $400-$450 depending what you pick. extra ddr 4 would help budget dependant.

my son did some thing similar a couple of years ago with his pc like yours a G pentium to Kaby lake i5 and a GTX1060
