Hey everyone, I decided a couple weeks ago to upgrade my desktop after seeing my scores on some benchmarks. I really

want to to be able to run games like crysis and such and a decent frame rate, and with good graphics. My questions are can I

upgrade any of the parts on this pc. I know I might have to replace my power supply since its 200-240V. I'm looking to get a

new graphics card/s, and maybe get a second hdd. Dunno how much of this info you need so let me know if you need more, thanks all.

CPU is good
Ram 4 Gb is good
GPU HD4670 basic gaming card good at low res. Suggest HD5770 if res @ 1680 x 1050 or lower, If higher HD5850
Hard disk size user defined
PSU probably only 300watt. Suggest a good ~500watt unit, Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, etc
