PC3-10600 and 1333 MHz are same memory, you should go back to the store, return the memory you bought and get a matching set of PC3-10600 , 1333 MHz memory and install it.

Example:

Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BA1339 - Newegg.com

Then you could use a better video card:

Newegg.com - ASUS GTX650TI-OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Then you`ll need a better power supply, it`s a vicious cycle, welcome to our world


I didn't know they still made a 250w power supply.

My computer was manufactured in '09, my father and mother bought it for me in '11 (because of high grades ), it's an old PC, it costed around 632 US$ at the time I bought it, I just realized that amount of money, I can build a gaming rig. Yeah, they still make 250w PSU's at those times. PC getting outdated, when I build a new one or buy a better one, I might give this to a cousin mine that's a geek too in computers. I'm planning a build on a budget of 500~600 US$. Still catching up in the new world and hoping that I can catch up.

5 or 6 Hundred won`t buy much. A case, power supply, motherboard and cpu will eat that right up, and even that`s stretching it.

I saw this on a gaming forum, a 500$ build, only hardwares.:
I can find a GTX 650 TI for just 122 US$ around my area, some hardwares in my area might be cheaper but not more expensive than international ones.

Edit: I might go to 700 US$.

I wouldn`t get an i3.

and for a few dollars more you can get 2 GBs of memory on the card.

This MSI card is nice too.

For some reason, my reply disappeared, never thought of an OC'd version, I know little about assembling a PC, especially cable management, I don't want my PC to go up in smokes cause of wrong connections, how much do you think if I give the parts to a shop and let them assemble it? Also, forgot the cooling, any cheap and good fans?

The connectors on a power supply will only go in one place each. Having a tech assemble it is risky too, if it fails he could say you had the wrong parts. Here is a good series of videos to watch. Newegg TV: How To Build a Computer - Part 1 - Choosing Your Components - YouTube
