cpu and motherboard upgrade


New Member
Hey I am looking to upgrade my cpu and motherboard.
I am using the computer for gaming, mostly playing: lol, titanfall 2, cs go, rocket leage, apex legend

now I have:
graphic card: gtx 1060 6gb
motherboard: ga-h97m-hd3
cpu: intel core i5-4460 3.2gh
psu: xcp-a600 with 600w

my budget is around 500$
thanks for the help.

You also really should change out that power supply for something better since its really only pushing out 432 watts on the dual rail 12V lines. You'll need a 600 watt psu in the $55-$65 range. Look for brands EVGA, Corsair, Thermaltake smart power series.

As per @Darren you'd also need DDR4 to go with it.

If you can hang on another year DDR5 is about to drop next year breh.
