Hello,i currently own an old pc and i am mostly interested on gaming,currently i can't play new games. And games like minecraft or roblox run with 5-15 fps. I can play games like counter strike 1.6,or mount and blade warband and GTA:San Andreas on lowest settings,but still.. I currently have 100$ and i don't know what to upgrade for a better gaming experience

Here are my specs: Operating System:

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit SP1 

CPU: Intel Pentium E5300 @ 2.60GHz(Wolfdale 45nm Technology)

Motherboard:ConRoe1333-D667 (CPUSocket)

Graphics:Intel 82945G Express Chipset Family (ASRock) -M19W (1440x900@60Hz) 

Storage: 74GB Western Digital WDC WD800JD-60MSA1 ATA Device (SATA)

My budget is 100$,can i somewhat start saving this pc with a slow proccess,or it can't be done? My goal is to play games like GTA V smoothly.. Thank you for your time!

You should buy better video card. At least motherboard model and power supply (manufacturer and model) must be known.

 

Programs like Speccy or CPU-Z tell motherboard model. Power supply model reads on power supply label.

Manufacturer and model? That does not include that info.

Hope you don`t mind the interjection folks  :)

 

Depends on how much you are willing to invest in this DarkPain.

 

 

Is the board here the same as yours.

 

How much RAM do you have.

 

What size case, small form factor, mid or full tower.

 

As previously requested, PSU brand and model name or number will be required, see example attachment of how to get the info by checking the present PSU inside the case.

That ConRoe1333-D667 sounded so stupid I didn't even thought it was board name :axe:

 

Anyway that motherboard has PCI Express x16 slot and that's about all I wanted to know about it.

 

So for graphic card. I suggest you look for used ones. I wouldn't spend even $100 because other parts are very slow ones. I would check for used cards like Radeon R7 240 or similar. Should go under 50 bucks used.
