    Can I upgrade this machine any further?


    Hey guys and gals,

    Can I upgrade this machine any further. I think I have maxed out this old <2012 motherboard:

    Yes I could probably add a better GFX card and PSU (stock 300w), but is it worth it?

    No games I like struggle yet.. but I'm missing out on SATA3 and USB3 in current configuration.

    Cheers

    You can get an lga1155 motherboard with usb3 and sata 3, then keep using your current cpu, ram, and graphics card.

    You can pick up a suitable mobo for 40 or so.
