    What GPU do you have.

    i7-4770
    MSI Z97s Krait
    Deepcool Captain 120 White AIO
    16gb RAM
    Asus Strix Gtx 1080


  • update your motherboard bios and you have compatibility with a Xeon E3-1230 (v2 variant even better if you can find one)

    $70 on ebay for a sandy bridge i7 equivalent (hyperthreading quad core). 

    the v2 of that CPU, which is Ivy Bridge, is $90-$100+

    and then yeah, a GPU upgrade but need to know what you have.

    If you can't get xeon processors then a decent gpu would be your best upgrade.

    For gaming it will. If you don't game at all then go for an ssd or a new CPU.

    If your budget is only 200 I would try and nab a used i5 or i7 with the same socket and buy a 120gb sad for your operating system, then put all your big programs and files on the hdd. That would be the best.

  • Yeah few things will make a system feel more snappy than adding a usb boot drive.
  • I'd personally grab a second hand i5 2400 or other locked i5, an HD 7950, 120GB SSD and a cheap 80+ 500w power supply. You should be able to stay under 200$ if you're patient and wait for deals to come up. Just upgraded from a system very similar to this and gaming performance is still great!

    Here are some prices you could expect:
    i5 2400 = 40$
    Radeon HD 7950 = 75$
    120GB SSD = 55$
    500W PSU = 30$

    If you sell the older parts that you end up replacing, you'd probably make 25$ back and keep well under that 200$ budget
