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.

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.

Well...I'd like to know what the purpose (if there is one) of the upgrade might be. What are you unhappy with...re your present system?
How much money are you interested in spending if this is just a "fun" upgrade?

What do you do with your computer? Do you do any heavy work? If you are upgrading just because it seems to be the thing to do, IMO the is a bit foolish. However if you do use intensive programs then by all means do do so.

I know it is dumb to spend this amount of money for pc where I am not making any money from it. I was searching for pc that will be able to run games 144hz at 1440p resolution, and i hope will last me for at least 5-6 years. After i finished high school i was around 4months in coolege learning to become mechanical engineer, long story short it didnt work out for me and i quit, after 2mouths after that i got a job and here i am 8months later thiking about working this current job until next year where i would sign up again give myself a chance to become software developer.
