Default What should i buy? Mother board, cpu, and ram upgrade.

Hello pc mustard race, i'll be upgrading my rig in the next months.
The current specs are very basic:
Intel Celeron 420 1.60Ghz w/O.V @2.0
Zotac 570 it (used gift from a friend)
1.5 ram
550W PSU
Gigabyte 945gzm-s2
------------------------------------
I've been looking at this rig:
Asus Intel H18M-A/BR LGA 1150
Intel pentium G3240 3.10Ghz 2cores 2threads

Or maybe the G3258
But money IS a problem!
8gb 1333 ddr3 ram
----------------------------------

What do you think about this?
I love in brazil and i study and I'll start to work part time and get 130 dollars per month, while the new cpu for instance, costs 70 dollars here. and the 3 itens cost 243 dollars.

That's not bad. I'd go that route, and maybe save a little more for a cheap Z97 board so you can OC the G3258 later.

Wow, I'd like that one, but for some reason it costs the same as the 3 items. Not possible.

Even in your country it shouldn't cost that much. There are Z97 boards that are almost as cheap as H81 boards. It's just a case of finding one.
