Not knowing anything about gaming computers, I purchased my 12 yr old son one simply based on the description of "Great price for Extreme Gaming". Needless to say, my son is frustrated with this computer. I really messed up on this trying to be cheap. I have since researched this and it's now clear to me where I went wrong... I should have researched first...lol. A lesson well learned.
I'd like to see what I can do with what he has now to make this a good gaming computer. I'd like to keep it under $600 worth of upgrades if possible, but will do what I have to.
Here's what he has:
In this huge tower is:
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-H110M-A Micro ATX LGA1151
GPU - Zotac GeForce GT730
CPU - i5 6600K 3.5 GHz
PSU - SPI 350W
RAM - 8
Would I be able to simply replace the gpu and psu, then increase ram to obtain good results?
I would really appreciate any suggestions. Would be great to surprise my son with a decent gaming computer, since this one is causing him to shout some surprising language at 12 yrs old.
