Motherboard Asus M5A97 R2.0 EVO
Operating System Windows 10 Home 64bit

Do be honest I would rather save some money for a new CPU/motherboard and DDR4 RAM. If you now upgrade to more DDR3 RAM you wont be able to use that in a future system. (Every current mainboard/CPU uses DDR4 RAM)


Your CPU is just not that good for gaming, especially in Squad. I had that CPU with 16 GB RAM myself and it still did not perform any good.


I think investing in that old system is really a waste of money if you want it only for gaming.

Koschilein is right. You'd be much better off changing your CPU and main board. Squad will perform much better with the hardware below.


This combination is 339$.


CPU (223$):



Main board (45$):



RAM (71$):
