Looking For advice, new to PC upgrading

Hello I've been wanting to upgrade my less than stellar pc for a while now and was looking for advice on what would physically fit and be good choices to upgrade my build. I'm primarily looking for a new GPU that will fit in my case but I am also looking to possibly getting a new cpu and a cooling fan for it.

my specs are:

MSI 760GM-p34(fx) motherboard

AMD FX-6300 Vishera CPU

Nvidia GEforce GT610 ddr3 GPU

My case is a CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA530 Gaming Desktop - which I originally got as a gift and is now pretty outdated.

the case dimensions are:
Height: 17.5"
Width: 7.3"
Depth: 20.5"

if anyone has any good recommendations or a general starting point for my potential upgrade please don't hesitate to let me know.

Thank you for your time!

  1. Depends on the power supply as to what video card you can use.
    For the processor upgrade their nothing worth spending any money on for your board.
    So that would mean new board DDR4 memory and processor.

    With that cpu going any better than a gtx 1050ti is not recommend since the cpu is quite weak. I do need to know your current psu (model,wattage,...) since cyberpower usually cheaps out on those.

    Yeah a new psu is a good idea since as usual it's garbage.
