My computer is constantly running with 60-80% use of CPU and 60-70% use of RAM. I think it's time for an upgrade.
The motherboard is relatively new (I was forced to replace it since the old one had RAM issues) and I would like to keep it. I was thinking of buying a new 8core processor and 8GB DDR3 RAM.
I'm no gamer, I'm using the on-board sound and graphic cards, I mainly use my computer to surf social media, watching movies and creating subtitles. I am hoping that this upgrade will be enough for 4 years. There is no specific budget but I'd wish to keep it under $300.
The thing is, I don't know how to choose my new CPU and RAM. Can you please help?
Motherboard: ASRock N68C-GS4 FX
