Hello, so after countless hours of anger because my pc is too slow i have decided to make a change in my life. That change is upgrading my motherboard (yes i know upgrading your mother board won't give you more speed but you know what will? RAM!) My pc specs are:
Gigabyte g31m-es2l mother board
Intel Pentium Dual Core E5500 2.8GHz
Nvidia GT 730
PSU= 400W
After looking up in the internet i noticed that DDR2 RAM is much more expensive than DDR3 so i was thinking of upgrading my motherboard to get more and cheaper RAM
My budget is low that's why i want to know will :ASRock 970 EXTREME3 R2.0 and 2 sticks od DDR3 4GB ram + AMD FX-4300, Quad Core, 3.80GHz, 4MB, AM3+, 32nm, 95W, BOX would work
I know that it would be better just to get a new pc but since i have a budget only for 200 i thought i would get more if i'd just upgrade.

So I would really appreciate if you guys would take a momment from your time and helped me.

Your upgrade plan sounds good. Later you can add 8-core FX if you want. DDR2 is expensive as DDR3 replaced it long time ago.
