Upgrading an old computer up to 1100 NIS

Peace,

I'm thinking of upgrading my trinity (processor, motherboard, memory) on a budget of 1100 for gaming purposes,

I wonder if there will be an improvement in this budget? Or is it better to save and upgrade later?

My specification 

Processor-intel i5 2500 3.3 Ghz

Motherboard - P67A-UD3-B3

Cooling- cooling freezer 7 pro rev.2

Memory - 8gb RAM

crucial mx500 500gb-ssd

Video card - r9 290 tri x sapphire

Marz- corsair obsidian 750d

Provider - gigabyte b700h

Thanks.

Do not see what can be bought for such an amount that there will be an improvement. You should upgrade to at least a 6-core 12-core processor like the i5-10400, and it is not possible on such a budget.

But the truth is that even with a CPU upgrade I am not sure what improvement you will get with such an outdated video card.

 

I would rather start from. The screen if the goal is performance in gaming, at such a budget as much as you can push it is 1660 super, worth waiting a month or two and see what new cards like RTX3050 offer that are supposed to land in this price range.

thanks for the reply 

What about the second hand market?

Which video card is recommended not to be corrupted by the processor? And what is the cost in the second-hand market?

If you do not mind second hand, in such an amount you can bring GTX1080 in my opinion. At least I saw them at those prices when I rummaged through myself some time ago.

The CPU may be a bit limiting especially in games that are hungry for cores, but by and large without knowing what you are playing - it will be a much bigger improvement in performance than buying a new trinity, probably something for that amount.
