You have dual core CPU and you are "upgrading" it to dual core CPU. Makes no sense IMO.


Also PSU's quality is crap.


I recommend you sell whole system and buy totally new one instead upgrading.

These are the processors your PC is capable of using.  The motherboard is about four years old.  You'll probably want to upgrade the power supply (PSU) to 500 watts or greater and get it from a reputable manufacturer.

Agreed with the above you can get yourself an I7 4770-4790, or I5 4670-4690. Upgrade the ram to 8-16GB and your power supply and you will be good-to go.
