I just bought a dell optiplex 380 dt for 65€. Here's what's in it: 
core 2 duo e8400
DDR3 2*2 Gb
What is the best cpu I can buy for this pc? X5450? I'll upgrade the ram to 2*4Gb.

    The X5460 is only a few dollars more than the 5450 and gets you a slightly higher clock, but anything above that becomes prohibitively expensive for such an old chip. All of the chips on Aliexpress seem to be pre-modded to fit LGA 775 boards, so that shouldn't be an issue. Don't bother with the X54*2 chips, since the motherboard doesn't appear to support 1600MHz RAM. Mainstream, top tier, LGA 775 chips are too expensive to bother with in this case.
    CPU - R7 1700 @ 3.9GHz | Motherboard- Asus Crosshair VI Hero | RAM - G.Skill Trident Z 16GB 3200MHz | GPU - Asus GTX 1080 Strix | Case - Fractal Define R5 | Boot Drive - Samsung 500GB 850 Evo | Storage - Mushkin Reaktor 1TB, HGST Deskstar 4TB, Seagate Barracuda 1TB  | PSU - Seasonic x-750 750W | Display - Asus PB258Q 25" 1440p |  Cooling - Noctua NH-D15

    Hello my hd7750 is dead (black screen if i try to install drivers).
    I bought a gtx 750 (GV-N75OC-2GL) but the dvi slot is touching the bracket of the motherboard but it works. Should I bent it?
