So, this is my desktop PC.
I'm gonna buy used parts in the future because they are cheaper and in my country we have a reliable source on the Internet.

What I need to change
  • 8GB RAM to 16GB (Not so cheap right now)
  • Replace the case to "NZXT" case
I am planning to buy a used 3rd gen I7 because even that is so much better than my CPU right now.

What about AMD Ryzen? It is relatively cheap and its a bargain for the buck.

I paid about roughly $200 for an AMD Ryzen 5 when they came out (6 cores, 12 threads, 3.2ghz) and it is performing strong all this time ahead. I do not use it for gaming but apparently it isn't bad for it.

Yes, you are right. Ryzen is good and it is good for gaming too. I'm also AMD fan :)
The reason why I would pick an old Intel I7 instead of the Ryzen is because I can see more better deal of Intel.
