Any tips for boosting an old pc?
Lately I have been getting lots of frame drops with newer games. My cpu seems to be the bottleneck here. I want to stretch it until the end of the year, any ideas on how I can boost my machine?

1. Clean your PC
2. Overclock the CPU (Need good cpu cooler though)
3. CPUs are dirt cheap buy a new one

I agree with you. Depending on how crappy pf a state your cpu is I would recomend buying a new one

an SSD is the cheapest upgrade with the biggest change. If you don't have one, get one.

You can maybe reapply the thermal paste on your CPU but really the only way you're going to see a noticeable improvement is by upgrading. Or fijd games that aren't hardware intensive
