Upgrade or get a whole new PC

So guys i'm planning to get into PC Gaming but i'm on a very limited budget because i'm just 16 years old and i don't have a reliable income of money. So i have some questions about what CPUs could be a good option.

  1. I got a 775 MOBO and Core 2 Duo, so should i upgrade to a Core 2 Quad q9650, or should i get an Athlon x4 860k and a FM2 MOBO? Processors in my country are just too expensive. Another option could be getting an Sandy o Ivy Bridge used i5 and a 1155 MOBO that are around 45$.
  2. Also, in case that you recommend me a CPU, what GPU would you recommend me?

Sorry if i have a bad english, spanish is my first language

Would go with the used i5 and a GTX 1050.

If i get a GTX 1050 the bottleneck could be pretty funny.

Another option could be getting an used Sandy or Ivy Bridge i5? They are between 50-80$ in my country.
