You don't need to upgrade your system just because it is heating up !!!! Download CPUZ and check CPU temperatures when the system is idle and when playing games. I don't know what you mean by your 'CPU heating up' but from the tone of your post, I'm assuming its the cabinet that you found heating up (CPU = processor =/= cabinet-dubba).

Before you spend money on a new system, remove the heatsink from the processor, clean the heatsink of accumulated dust and apply a good quality thermal paste like Coolermaster in the heatsink and the processor. If you don't know how to do it, ask any two bit computer technician to do it for you. CPU fan noise suggests dust ... in such case, even vacuuming the cabinet helps a lot (if you do vacuum, open the cabinet, block the fan on the heatsink from rotating using a pencil on something and vacuum all the dust; avoid disturbing the wires or loosening the RAM or graphics card but if you do, all you'd need to do is firmly re-seat them, no harm).

And yes, your request for suggestions refer to a completely new system, not an upgrade. The kind of money you'd spend on a new system can instead go for a kickass graphhics card, if the rest of your components are fine.

If you do want to go for a new system, read and read lot. No offence, but evidently from your post, you don't have the slightest clue about computer hardware.

Thank you for your detailed solution. I'll elaborate my problem in detail:

When I play games like mass effect 3 or titanfall 2 there's a lil bit of heating of the cpu which I felt from the outside (by touching the cabinet). Recently when I was playing Hitman the cabinet got so hot that my pc got shut down!
As far as the noise is concerned its become a regular thing.

I clean my cabinet every week and yes i tried the vaccum thing. The noise is still there! You also provided me a solution to use thermal paste. But for some reasons my processor and mobo got glued! I mean the computer engineer was unable to separate them. He said it might damage the board/processor.

I accept that I don't have the slightest idea about hardware or else why would I ask you guys for help.

Please help me make my pc futureproof!

Do you have AC in your room? If Yes , Switch it on when you play the game and place the PC close to it. This may sound rubbish, but it still helps

Kindly suggest me the following :

1. Processor: Only INTEL as I don't trust AMD anymore because of its heating and noise! The processor should be future proof. I thought of having 8Cores, rest you guys can suggest.

2. Motherboard : Which needs to be compatible with the processor.

3. GPU: Only Nvidia (4GB) or more if you think!

4. SSD: 250 GB or so.

5. RAM : 8 GB or so!

6. PSU : That supports all the above hardware.

Please help me out guys!
Hi

What is your current motherboard and CPU configuration?

Upgrade your graphic card and get an SSD.
