Build Advice Upgrade PC Hardware running Windows 10


Feb 13, 2016
My PC is a few years old and needs to be upgraded. I'm not sure if my hardware can be upgraded, especially my processor. So, I need newer hardware. Please let me know if my current hardware can handle a new graphics card, etc. If you think that I need a new processor, I'd appreciate recommendations for a new one. I'm a big gamer.

Hey there,

We need the full breakdown of your PC specs: Mobo, Ram make and model, PSU, Case, GPU. The whole shebang! :)

In all honesty, your system is dated now. You should consider a new system. The good news is, that there are many options now which are much better than what you have in terms of the CPU.

Do you have a budget in mind? Where would you be shopping from?

If you are a gamer, what type of games do you play, and what res is your monitor?
