I've been doing my research and I want to upgrade my old desktop. $500 would be my max budget and so far this is what I've come up with. With the motherboard I have now (AAHD2-HY) I think these are the best parts I can buy.
CPU/GRAPHICS: AMD A8-3850 APU Quad-Core Processor (comes with AMD Radeon HD 6550D) $87.99 on amazon
RAM: PC3-14400 (DDR3-1866) My mother board is capped at 8GB (4x2) I haven't found one online that I want yet.
Is there anything else I should get?
Should I just buy a new motherboard? That seems like it would be very complicated because I believe I would have to get a new OS or find my product key (windows 7)
What is the best thing I can do for my money? Any and all help will be appreciated!! Thanks guys
