I5 650 OCing worth it with an intel g41

Hello,

So i have this Intel G41 chipset,
with an i5 650 and 6gb (3x2) of ram.

And i don't know if i should buy an aftermarket cooler for overclocking is that worth it? And get an rx 480. Or just keep the stock cooler and get an rx 470?

Also planning to get an 2 gb ram stick extra. As thermal paste i was thinking about arctic silver 5.

1. Rx 470 4gb 210€
2. Rx 480 4gb 250€ H12 vevo 30€
3. Or any other suggestions are welcome :)

So my budget is 350€ and i am not planning on a cpu upgrade yet because i just want to play bf1 1080p/60fps my cpu would be enough for the 64 players right?

So what is an smart investment?

  1. I would keep the current CPU and cooler, not worry about overclocking the CPU, get an RX 470. I would buy an 8GB kit of RAM instead of adding more RAM and mixing specs, which would potentially produce an unstable system.

    Before I recommend buying a new graphics card, I need to know what model power supply you have in the system.
  2. Currently i have an 300w HP power supply
    with no 6 pin connector. So i am also planning to buy an new power supply.
    What do you suggest?

  4. Isn't that a little bit overkill?
    I don't need more than 450w.
    What about an Corsair VS 450?
