FM1 is very outdated tech but if you were just going to switch out the CPU I would lean towards the AMD A8-3870K

Look into changing out the motherboard as well and getting a newer CPU to go along with it

I have done network admin for a living since 1997 and know how to build a computer, I was just never really more than casually interested in gaming. Mostly playing with my sons as they were growing up on the consoles. But now that I'm getting into the racing games and have some money, I'm looking to have fun.
I understand it can run two GPU cards in tandem, but I don't know when that is better than one big card.

Also, I forgot that the graphics card is part of the APU. And I can find newer/higher clocked versions of it for $100.
