Arrow Need Recommendation for Gaming Parts

Hi guys,

My PC below was built in late 2015 with help from this community, and just last year, I change my graphic card, casing, PSU and add in another 8gb Ram. Great with the games I play.

But now I also intend to play and download the new Battlefield 5, but looking at the game requirement, unfortunately, my processor cannot make a cut.

Please help to recommend me a good motherboard, CPU and RAM. If there is a need to change any other parts, please suggest them too. Anyhow, I do not want to spend much money on them.

Many thanks in advance.

For selective parts, look at all the "recommend me a rig" threads and adjust from there.

What is your budget anyway? Your GPU will be the biggest upgrade

keep your storage, PSU, casing and GPU (Better to upgrade). The rest need to change.

You meant, all the motherboard/CPU/Ram listed is good for battlefield 5?
I just choose any of them?

Start by changing your gpu first. Then your cpu and mobo second.

You are most likely bottleneck by the gpu.

BF5 is CPU-intensive. The GPU could do with an upgrade as well.

So at a minimum, CPU+MB+RAM+GPU.

All depends on your budget. You don't tell us your budget, how to recommend??
