    What can I do?

    Don't think of me as a idiot but a year ago I bought a HP Computer at Best-buy not really knowing the situation on building one.
    Its a HP-P7-1234
    I know the Specs and so forth Im just wondering.

    What can I do with it to enhance my gaming experience?

    Use it as a toilet while looking for a new computer.
    What's your budget?

    Alright, first of all, it's running off of a MicroATX mobo, which sort of cuts down on your upgrade potentional. Plus, the pre-installed motherboard is a pile of shit...I wouldn't even use it for beer coaster. I'd suggest getting a brand new ATX form factor motherboard with an AM3+ socket on it. You can get some great cheap ones for around $50-100.

    The case, (while still obviously not having the best airflow), should definitely be kept for any upgrades. It's an ATX as well, so you have plenty of room for upgrades.

    That CPU isn't too slow, but it's not really too fast either. Pick up an FX series if you can.

    That GPU DEFINITELY needs an upgrade. Pick up either a 7000 series Radeon or a 600 Series GTX.
    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.

    Alright. Thanks guys. I actually sold it not to long ago for 300 and I currently hold 500 in savings for the new parts if I could see that the Pavillion was worth it. Lol.
    Any recommendations for a cheap but awesome computer?
