    Well, first, I'm new here, and I just came in because I don't have the slightest experience and wisdom when it comes to computer components, and I really need some help with that, and I would like (if anyone has the time and availability) to help me out to modify it in a way that I can play some games that I will talk about below (along with its recommended specifications for those who want to read), but keeping a viable price to be paid for it.

    Well, for starters, the specifications of my computer are:

    Processor: Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-7500 CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.40GHz
    Installed Memory (RAM): 8.00 GB (Usable: 7.87 GB)
    System Type: 64-bit System
    Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050

    Source: Gamemax - 500W


    Total Memory: 6009 MB
    Video Memory (VRAM): 1977 MB
    Shared Memory: 4031 MB

    I think this is the necessary, if I losted some information about the computer and its configuration, you can request me at will (And I will try to find somehow).

    And in relation to the games I would like to run on it, they are games like: "Devil May Cry 5", "Resident Evil 7", "Resident Evil 2 Remake", "Resident Evil 3 Remake" and etc. (I think you can see how I am a Capcom fan kkk)

    Devil May Cry 5:

    Processor: Intel® Core ™ i7-3770, AMD FX ™ -9590, or better

    Memory: 8 GB RAM

    Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 with 6GB VRAM, AMD Radeon ™ RX 480 with 8GB VRAM, or better

    (The rest of the requirements talk more about DirectX, Storage, etc., but if needed, I can send them later.)

    Resident Evil 7:

    Processor: Intel® Core ™ i7 3770 3.4GHz or AMD equivalent or better

    Memory: 8 GB RAM

    Graphics Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 with 3GB VRAM

    These are the recommended specifications for running games, and I would like to know what I should / can change on my computer to improve both the Fps while playing and even its graphics.

    I think this is the essential, if something is missing, you can request me the will, I thank you for everything and apologize for the text kkk.


    I already own some of the games, and when I tested them, they don't run so well.
    I Can play in the Low quality, but now that I can improve my computer, and I would not like to lost this opportunity.

    Thanks for everything kkk.

    More system ram, better video card, better power supply. What kind of budget do you have? What motherboard do you have as well?

    Well, first of all, thanks for the help, and going to the trouble, about the motherboard, is a H110M-C DDR4 (I think this is the most important, if you need anything else, just tell me) and the budget, it's something like $ 1000 (and, I'm Brazilian, that's the estimated value)

    The best cpu for that motherboard is the I7-7700K and you'll probably only find it on Ebay or similar since its 2 generations(3 years) old now. Minimum ram should be 8gb but if you can afford it get 16gb. Your 500 watt psu only puts out about 385 watts which is terrible, you would need to upgrade that to good brand psu. Not sure whats available in your country but corsair, evga, thermaltake would be the cheapest I think. As far as a video card goes, most of those games require a 1060 to play at recommended settings and you only have a 1050. The 2060 would be the newest comparison to the 1060. You could go AMD instead of Nvidia and save money there though.

    PSU+GPU really. More RAM would decrease stutters. GPU would increase your framerate, the 1050 is getting a bit slow for modern titles. The new PSU would be required to push the new GPU as the current PSU isn't very capable.

    The 7500k is okay for the near term, although I have a feeling you'll start seeing it become more of a limitation when next-gen titles drop which leverage a higher degree of multithreading.

    If you can, in addition to the above, I'd strongly recommend getting an SSD
    Compared to a mechanical hard drive, this will greatly decrease loading times and stutter in game as well
