  1. upgrade your processor.
  2. Completely upgrade your system , any PSU or gfx card you take doesnt matter ! Today's Gfx cards will get severely bottlenecked by the such a system.
    Put so more rupees and get a better system altogether.
    You can't just upgrade the Gfx card in this way.
  3. Trying to upgrade a system from a branded PC shop can be challenging - HP & Dell in particular like to sideline you with proprietary connections onto their motherboard. I think you're going to have to replace the system memory, the motherboard, the CPU, the power supply and add a GPU which isn't going to be cheap and trying to cram all of that into a case that wasn't intended for aftermarket upgrades is a gamble. Decide on your budget, then we'll see if we can get you hooked up with a parts list

    In this meager budget you cant take a GFX Card for sure then , you better off with an APU :
    Check this build :
    1) http://www.amazon.com/AMD-A10-Series-Desktops-A10-6800K-AD680KWOHLBOX/dp/B00CPLGGXM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1397048123&sr=8-2&keywords=amd+a10

    Corsair CX 430W

    The whole build comes to Roughly 415$
    This is the closest and best possible build i could see for you.
    Graphical performance will be totally dependent on the APU , and its a realy good APU.
    Check back and see if you find this build fit for your requirements.
  6. Thank you so much guys... its very helpful.. i hope my brother will like this assembly.. but i am confused and thinking of waiting for 2-3 months and increase my budget more... but thank you guys again for such a fast and helpful suggestions.!
  7. Whenever youre building a PC , remember that if you think you wait for something , until something better than what is currently comes out , well then you will need to wait forever.
    The PC's and desktop's industry changes rapidly everyday.
    I have been a victim of this , and i waited months thinking i'll get a new PC when DDR4 comes out !
