Ok so my mom and step dad just broke up today and my mom said i could have his computer and i was wondering if i could use it as a gaming computer these are the specs:
Motherboard-hH-CUPERTINO-H61-uA TX (Cupertino 2)

Processor- pentium G630

Memory- 4gb

Video card- Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD intergrated graphics (DX10.1)

Case- slimline

Power Supply- Internal 220w (100v-240v)

I was thinking about upgrading the cpu and the graphics card but if i did wouldnt i have to get a new power supply and if i did would it fit in the case or would i have to get a new one? This is what the website says on upgrading the cpu;
Socket type: LGA 1155
TDP: 35W up to 95W (processor dependent)
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
Core i3-2xxx/T dual core
Core i3-2xxx dual core
Core i5-2xxx quad core
Core i7-2xxx quad core
Core G6xx/T dual core does anyone have any suggestions on a new graphics card, psu and cpu?

What is your case. The best you could do with that psu is maybe a 7750. But that can play most games decently, And I think you can get low profile it is a slim case. Sorry about your parents too.

The case is a slim line. So a 7750? Would that fit in the case and would it work with the PSU? Thanks man this just happened outta the blue, but im ok with it.

Sorry about your parents..

Yes 7750 is the stongest card without power auxiliary..

jut remember to buy half height version, not the full board, it will fit in your slim case..

It will be plenty for that resolution. It should run every game out there on high.
