I currently own an Asus Essentio CM5570 PC( http://www.asus.com/Desktop/Entertainment/Essentio_CM5570/#specifications ) and im looking to upgrade it the best I can without spending to much cash. The only thing I have upgraded on it is the graphics card, i installed a NVIDIA GeForce 210 a few months ago. Im pretty good with computers, but building and upgrading is not my strong suit, so i was hoping someone on here could recommend what i need to upgrade this on a budget. My computer has gotten to the point where i sometimes get lag on simple games like Minecraft, and I would love to upgrade it to play a variety of new PC games and do other general tasks like video editing and all around faster speed. Also, for the past few weeks when I power up my pc it gives me a CPU fan error and tells me to press F1 to resume, so I assume im going to have to replace that as well. Hopefully one of you guys can help me out with this. Thanks in advanced.

I would be recommending the 6870 which is a great mid-range card but your power supply is only 300W which is not enough, so you would have to upgrade the power supply. Also the asus spec page doesn't tell me exactly which cpu you have and the amount of ram you have.

System1: CPU- Intel Core i7-5820K @ 4.4GHz, CPU Cooler- Noctua NH-D14, RAM- G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB Kit(4Gx4) DDR3 2133MHz, SSD/HDD- Samsung 850 EVO 250GB/Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB/Seagate Barracuada 3TB, GPU- 2x EVGA GTX980 Superclocked @1360/MHz1900MHz, Motherboard- Asus X99 Deluxe, Case- Custom Mac G5, PSU- EVGA P2-1000W, Soundcard- Realtek High Definition Audio, OS- Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit
