Those new parts are new or used? You are using computer for what? Reasons for upgrade? Price for those new or "new" parts?

LGA1150 platform is outdated so it's quite impossible to recommend that. Also 4570 CPU is "only" quad core.

 

Better CPU's include (worst to best, price of course lowest to highest). Last two go out of $300 budget however.

 

Ryzen 3 1200
Ryzen 5 1400
Ryzen 5 1600

Ryzen 7 1700

 

Motherboard can be any B350. Case and PSU looks OK.

Intel G series cpu's are very cheap, along with an 1151 board you can upgrade for less than half  of the $300. But those G series Intel cpu's are only dual core and may not meet all your needs

Either way, AMD or Intel... you'll need to get DDR4 memory with a new updated format and that's not going to be cheap.

Look into a better name brand power supply too, You do not want to risk damaging all your new stuff with an off the wall "economy" power supply

While using DDR3 is possible, it's recommended to make switch to DDR4 despite prices are very high.

PSU is quite OK, SilentiumPC is quite unknown brand but that PSU looks to be better than many no-name brands.

Just over your $300. with the Ryzen, but well worth considering (has better performance)

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/n3RCHN

 

The Intel is only a little cheaper, and it is only a dual core cpu (cheaper, less performance)

Listed power supply has $20. rebate from Newegg, if that applies to you

Yeah if you can go a little more than $300 than go AMD.

Joe C's build will do the job.

$300 is a bit tight right now as parts are getting pricey all over, save more on your budget and wait a few months.

Budget at least $500 to get good results for your needs.

go cheap now and you would not be getting much of a upgrade even with Ryzen at play.

Pretty expensive as Ryzen 3 is only 20 bucks more. On upside you can use your current RAM.

Indeed I mean Haswell is still good but you got ripped off as if you want to overclock you would still need a overpriced mobo not to mention a cooler.

The Ryder 3 would have been less expensive ignoring the up front cost.

 

Get your money back, you made a critical error by falling into the Intel and old socket trap

I would not invest too much into that i5 set up. Looking on Ebay, $90. is the going price for that chip, Your investment in a new board could be short lived when Microsoft decides in 2023? that it may longer support that Devils Canyon cpu. Intel states that this cpu is at End Of Life. Microsoft has stated they will not update old hardware, many peeps were very upset so Microsoft extended that date to 2023? (With M$ anything they state can be questionable today)

 

Going for the Kabylake or Ryzen is a better option. It might cost a little more today but it will last you and be supported much longer.

I bought this for max 2-3 years, not more.

I'm going spent more for motherboard with Z97 so in 1-2 years I will sell this i5 and buy better cpu, any Kabylake with good board is to much expensive for me.

 

I was thinking about i5 6600k but with good OC board and ram it will be expensive...

Prices will most likely drop in the next couple years on the Kabylake &1151 boards. Possibly to what your spending today on that i5 and 1150 board
