I use the processor Intel pentium G3240 and my motherboard is Gigabyte H81M-S and it's been 7 years since installed and the processor is pretty much slow and it can just run max 4 programs at a time and i want to upgrade to a better processor since i also want to do gaming (not streaming) and i don't know what processor my motherboard supports, can anyone give me a soultion?? (it should be in price range of 40.45 -67.42 usd or 3000-5000 inr)

We do not know what processors are supported by your board.   But, gigabyte does!

I am always surprised by how many users never check their board manufacturer site for specifics.
