Hello dear people,

Month ago bought my PC for cheap price (£290) and I'm not really happy with it, because it cannot run any decent games even on medium settings. So I'm thinking to upgrade it.

My budget is around £200-£250

Going to use it for gaming.

I have monitor LG which resolution is 1920x1080

I'm thinking to buy new graphic card, add more rams and get upgrade on my PSU, because i think this one will fail to deliver.

CPU: AMD A8 6600K Quad Core Processor
RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz
Graphics: RADEON HD8570D ( I think its integrated )
Motherboard: MSI A78M-E35 uATX
PSU: ATX-500B

What can I do with this PC? If I get good graphic card will my CPU and PSU support it? Do I need to change CPU as well? And what graphic card would suit this pc? I'm kinda newbie in this area please help! Thank you!

Your not able to run majority of games because of the integrated GPU, its not powerful enough. No reason to add more RAM, 8gb is more then enough to run games. I would suggest to go with an Intel CPU, but even then your looking more towards £300:

CPU: Intel Core i3-4160 3.6GHz Dual-Core Processor (£90.16 @ Scan.co.uk)
Motherboard: ASRock H97 PRO4 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard (£70.76 @ Scan.co.uk)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Video Card (£116.10 @ Scan.co.uk)
Total: £277.02
