    Want to upgrade my processor and motherboard as they are pretty old and resulting to bottleneck in every single new gen game .Looking for something like i3 8th gen and a suitable motherboard which can run DDR3 RAMs .

    1.Can I keep using my existing RAMs?
    2.Do I need to upgrade GPU ?

    Budget - Around 20k (+5k if I decide to go for a new cabinet )
    Purpose - Major gaming and mediocre programming and editing
    When am I buying - End of 2018

    Ask again in Nov 2018 by which time nvidia 2xxx series & probably intel 9th gen may be out.DDR3 ram will not work even today with intel 8th gen & Ryzen processors so add it to the list of components to replace.
