What cpu do you have? I can send you some deadly ram if it suits your rig.

 

I've still got that ram on the book shelf sitting here doing nothing. It's currently a resting place for my Aqua Dragon food.

 

It'll make your system a lot snappier.

 

OC your CPU to 4.6 or more and it'll be a night and day difference.

Lol $200 worth of of ram and can't give it away. Oh well.

 

If you wanna get a new gpu just google your gpu vs one you're looking at and there are some sites that compare them.

 

Here's a start.

 

You'll have it sorted in no time.

All you need is another stick of ram to boost you to 16 GB and you're all set.

I would guess that the CPU won't be an issue.

You can always give it the flick and buy a second hand i7

it MUST be the same

your motherboard will only support DDR3 if that is what is in it now

also make sure it is the same MHz      eg: 1600 MHz 

usually there will be a sticker on the RAM module giving you this info

 

 

here is the specs for your motherboard:

 

4 x DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 32 GB of system memory
* Due to a Windows 32-bit operating system limitation, when more than 4 GB of physical memory is installed, the actual memory size displayed will be less than the size of the physical memory installed.

Dual channel memory architecture

Support for DDR3 3200(O.C.) / 3100(O.C.) / 3000(O.C.) / 2933(O.C.) / 2800(O.C.) / 2666(O.C.) / 2600(O.C.) / 2500(O.C.) / 2400(O.C.) / 2200(O.C.) / 2133(O.C.) / 2000(O.C.) / 1866(O.C.) / 1800(O.C.) / 1600 / 1333 MHz memory modules

Support for non-ECC memory modules

Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules

ebay is your friend

you should be able to find a cheap one there 

 

@Admin (as if) 

if you still have the motherboard CD you can load up "easy tune" or download it  HERE and do a auto overclock of the CPU which is a very safe bet not to cook anything

The auto OC motherboard software always errs on the conservative side of things

Picked up a free server from Mrs BCB's workplace
Pristine Dell T320
Came with 4 HDD's
Loaded Windows server 2019 and now using it as a Plex media server
Been keeping an eye on the power usage
Uses 84 Kw per hour, so not to hungry
A bit more than my Qnap Nas box but the thing it can do is transcode on the fly whereas my Nas box can't
