About two years ago my dad bought a new pre built family computer for the house, a HP ENVY 700-019. Recently I've been looking at upgrading the GPU but am on a bit of a budget. Here are the specs: http://support.hp.com/fr-fr/document/c03795764 French page but easy to make out the specs
CPU - i7 4770 3.4 ghz GPU- Radeon HD 8570 RAM - 12 GB HDD - 2TB PSU - 460w Mobo - MS-7826 (Kaili) Specs are 24 cm x 24 cm , LGA 1150, Intel Z87 http://support.hp.com/fr-fr/document/c03794488
As of now I can play most games on medium/low with the resolution turned down a bit and get 30-40 fps but it gets old after a while :\ I'm aiming to be able to run games like Dayz, Arma 3, Red Orc 2, Killing Floor 2, Fallout 4, and Gta V, newer games etc at 1080p 60fps with high/ultra settings if possible. I'm not sure if the power supply is large enough to handle a new GPU so I might need to buy a new one, not sure if the case is big enough either. I also currently have a brand new Ax1200i 1200w psu but I'm trying to sell that since I'll never use the full 1200w and I assume there would be no point in using it.
I was looking at the XFX Radeon r9 380 because it looked like it had pretty solid reviews for a decent price, but I know I'd have to upgrade my psu also to maybe a 600 or 750w http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-r9380p2255
I'm not very experienced with pc building so what should I do? Any feedback at all would be greatly appreciated!!! Would those parts be the best option for me if I want to upgrade? Would that card work with my motherboard, and would there be any bottleneck issues etc? and if its possible to figure out, do you think it would fit in my case as is? I'm working with about $200-$300 give or take, depending on if I can get that power supply sold. Think I can get a better setup going then what I have right now on my budget? because the gpu isn't complete garbage but could definitely be better.
