    Question Can I upgrade my PC?

    Okay so I have an HP - Pavilion Desktop and when I play games like DayZ I kinda lag. I was wondering if I can upgrade my PC like a new graphics card or more ram and ETC.. I don't know that much about PCs and I wanted to know if I can upgrade the parts of it and if I can what should I upgrade on it for it can run games like DayZ with like 50-30 fps?

    This is a link to best buy where I bought it.---

    You absolutely need a Graphics Card, and if your budget allows it, a new CPU.
    What's your price point?
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    GT610 is a low end card and not fit for gaming at all, it's actually a waste of money if someone want a gaming performance card and bought it, i have already tried the GT610 2GB from AFOX, and trust me! just waste of money.
    Minimum cards to get are HD 7750 \ 7770.

    1. Motherboard, check motherboard if it have a pci-e slot.
    2. Power Supply, if your PSU is under 400WALT, then you need to upgrade it.
    3. Processor, if the CPU is too weak like a dual core or less you won't be able to handle a good video card.
    4. Case Size, if you have a small sized case, you may have problems with non htpc ready cards.

    I'd suggest an Athlon X4 740 and a GTX 650 Ti.

    How much Walt do you have in PSU ?
    If you have between 320 - 400w, i suggest to get GTX 650 or Sapphire HD 7770
