Need new cpu/mobo/ram!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Trying to upgrade my work setup used for CAD work w/ a budget of 300$

The specs are currently

Core 2 duo e5300
gts 450
4gb ddr3
antec neo eco 520w psu
500gb samsung f3 hd
nzxt vulcan case

because of the case, i'm limited to just matx motherboards. I haven't shopped around for parts in a while so I don't confidently know what to order. I'm only looking to upgrade the cpu/mobo and ram right now.

Thanks!

i3 2100, matx h61 board(they are cheaper than the p or z). what specs is your ram? add another 4gb or buy a kit that is compatible.

reuse the psu, case, and hdd.

What kind of RAM do you have.What's the speed?It'll be better if you match what RAM you have right now with what you plan to get.
