  1. 1) What's your motherboard?
    2) Your computer will bottleneck at the CPU or RAM if you upgrade your GPU. If you upgrade your RAM, you will need to buy and install a new 64 bit OS. If you upgrade your CPU, you will need to upgrade your motherboard and probably your RAM, and your OS.

    Basically what I'm saying is, unless you want a very minor performance increase, best build a new one.

    What he said^ you're going to need to build a new one mate. Hope this helps! God bless, and happy gaming!
  3. That CPU is extremely slow for any card that you would put in it. You might want to treat yourself to a new one.
  4. Hahah lol so you saying i might as well buy a new pc? XD

    oki so what pc do you recommend i should buy that is under or 1k? but meets the graphic card that i want?
  5. You should just build one. It would be much much better. If you want, I can piece together a new build.

    Also if you want, you can take your HP hard drive and add it to this computer for more storage.
  11. this is the pc you build and are now using? and all the thing must be order online?
  12. No the PC build I am using now is different....and I have like 4 computers....

    But this is a very good build. And if you have a Fry's Electronics or a Microcenter nearby you can get parts, but they will be cheapest online.
  13. ah oki thank you than i will build it i just how i don't fk it up, hope i can run every game online with it as well
