PC Master Race is hard when it takes a lot of money to spend and I been unemployed for a long time.

C2D 7400 @ 3.8Ghz overclocked. RAM: 400mhz, FSB: 1600 transfer rate. I think the hard drive is using SATA 2 instead of SATA 3.

Most of the parts are 2008-2009. I had an ATI 270 in there which should do well but games these days want resources from Hard drive and fast computation speeds. My CPU is bottle-necking my GPU a lot....

You pretty much have a potato.

Look for some refurb desktops if you are really low on money.

Just need mobo, CPU, RAM. someone told me to get a quad core C2D but that seems like a waste of money. My PSU is 520 watts which should be good enough. Hard Drive was replaced about 1-2 years ago. Some black edition western digital or something.

Don't know about NMS but a Core 2 Quad can still play modern games to an extent. They should be cheap now.

But if you can afford it, a Ryzen 3 or Coffe Lake i3 build would be the way to go.
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!

Huge waste of money. There's no reason to even try upgrading your build.

Stop gaming and get a job then you will have money. Complaining about not having the money to play a game while stating your unemployed seems....weird.

What motherboard slots are used nowadays?? I think I was on LGA 775. Now they use 1050, 1055 for Intel or something.

Yeah as someone who was struggling to get by for awhile I would say hold off on any upgrading. Gaming is a luxury and if you can't afford it that's fine. There are more important things to worry about.
