Err give it a few more months or so, the GPU market is really bad right now and memory is also very bad.

With hope GPU prices will climb down here soon but memory prices will likely remain high for the remainder of the year.

You know you want me baby!

They are predicting that memory prices are finally going to start dropping. I've seen on Newegg that over the past month their have been memory sales for about $20. cheaper than in December for on some DDR4 16gb module sets. Prices are not expected to drop suddenly but the downward trend is supposed to continue through the year

An upgrade for today would consist of a new motherboard, cpu and memory. With the possibility of a GPU and power supply if your into new gaming

If you like AMD then the Ryzen chip won't disappoint you compared to that 750 Athlon chip.

Depends on what you have as a budget as to how fast far you want to go

You can use pc part picker to find the best prices


 The part I like best about doing a new upgrade is researching and reading unbiased reviews  (unbiased means not deciding what to buy judged from reviews of some place trying to sell you something...They do have a sales agenda)

After much research you can make an informed decision for the best parts for your budget and specific needs

The SSD will be a very good thing to do now, you will see an immediate very good boost in speed.  That should hold you until some of the up coming price drops.
