Hey everyone, thanks for reading my post. I having a hard time figuring out what to do with my current setup. Currently my parents have this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Now I know it is not a gaming computer. I have a gaming laptop at my house that I normally use but I want to be able to play games at their house also. So my question is this: Is this computer worth upgrading? i.e. graphics card, more ram, and maybe overclocking the processor? Or is my gaming performance still going to be crappy after I do all that? and would it be cheaper to just buy a gaming desktop.? The games I will be playing is diablo 3 and just started neverwinter. Thank you for all your help!

Jason

i think it will still be crappy. Your motherboard might not be able handle it . So go in for a new system , or just take your laptop to your parents house :)

The case won't handle any kind of power and heat, but tell us your budget and we can help you make a new build.

That is what I was thinking. Thanks for the quick replies!

I would like to keep it under 800 or so. Pretty much I want something that could play Diablo 3 and Neverwinter with settings maxed and potential to upgrade in case more demanding games come out that i would be interested in. Would it be better to build one or buy a gaming desktop off newegg?
