  1. You can't do it that way, as your current RAM will not work with new CPU and motherboard.
  2. You need DDR4 RAM that is on the QVL list of the motherboard. List is here: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/A320M-PRO-VD-PLUS#support-mem-11
  3. Best answer
    You buy a APU for the excellent integrated graphics.
    But, there are no real good upgrades, particularly for a gamer.
    If you install a superior discrete graphics card, you will have thrown away the big advantage of the APU.
    Then, you are left with a relatively weak cpu. Most games depend on only a few fast cores.

    Bottom line.....
    What you get with a APU is what you will live with forever.

    Can you live with that?

    $250 buys you a superior G4600, lga1151 motherboard and 8gb of DDR4 ram.
    The LGA 1151 motherboard has many stronger cpu upgrades available.
    Your current 350w psu will support a discrete graphics card as good as a GTX1050ti.
  4. I will upgrade to a amd ryzen in the future this is a temporary solution cuz with my current specs i can't play CSGO it crashes with a blue screen i don't know why.
