Just bought a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., it should arrive sometime tomorrow. From what I've read most people are saying to upgrade the PSU to a 650w corsair for around 90 bucks and the GPU to a GT 630. i have a budget of around 80-90 for each,maybe a 100, will I be able to put those two into that computer and which model of each should i try for?

ugg, if it's possible return the computer or refuse and return to sender. This is obviously not the computer for you if you are already planning to upgrade the PSU and GPU.

With the price of the computer plus your extra budget you can get a VASTLY better computer if you build it yourself.

At least don't waste money on a 630, or anything less than a 6 or 7 as the second digit in the model number

GamerUltra lol with a Nvidia Geforce GT 610 even a A10 would beat this desktop while costing the same. I'd say a 6300 or I3 with a 7770 should be doable for 500-550$. in a new PC build

So yeah please return the thing newegg might understand if not then get a 7770 and a Antec 380 watt(yes it would be enough and should be less than 50$)

I realize I could get a better overall computer from building my own, but tbh I'm not too comfortable completely putting a computer together, power supply/graphics card/memory is pretty much my experience with adding/removing hard. So right now I just want to see what i can do to make the one im getting alittle better without too much to do. would http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=4677014&t... and http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Corsair+-+Enthusiast+Series... work with the computer?
