Hi purplekaycee and :welcome:

So you are going to buy a whole PC or upgrade?What is your budget and shop where to buy?Do not buy ready configuration.Better to select part by part.

Thank you!

Ok, so you have to tell me what is your current configuration.Also when you play games CPU and videocard are working in parallel.

Fast CPU and slow videocard is like slow CPU and slow videocard.You can use Speccy about config.

How to use Speccy

 

Thank you!

If you're not buying a motherboard to go with it, you will be limited by your current motherboard for what CPUs you can install.  When building I normally recommend deciding on which CPU you are going to be using and then find a motherboard with the features you want that supports your selected CPU.  Next pick the graphics card you want that will work with your selected motherboard.  Then a power supply that will support everything that you want, with room for expansion.

Okay, you're not using the correct terms, that is the problem.  When you say CPU you mean computer.  The CPU is the Central Processing Unit.  A computer contains a CPU, motherboard, video card, RAM (Random Access Memory), a storage device (hard drive or solid state drive (SSD)), possibly an optical drive.

 

How much money are you looking to spend?

Actually I would prefer a factory configured HP.preferably a hp pro
Which should come eith a pci 3.0
1terabyte hard drive,intel core I7
4gb ram with expandable slots

Not sure about the price but here in nigeria , it should be close to 600 dollars.N90,000 give or take

If you are more comfortable with a pre configured unit, then go with that one. However, building your own rig and carefully selecting your own parts that go with it is a whole lot better. There will be more upgradeability and you will be sure what hardware you're putting inside, eliminating the possibility that someone else picked some cheap generic parts to go computer.

 

Also, why pick a 4gb GTX 760? are you using multiple monitors? Are you going with the reference design?

Unless you are using multiple monitors, a 2gb GTX 760 will do just fine. You could even invest on a higher tier card like a GTX 770 or an R9 280x.

I hope these two cards can play all the games released in 2014 and two years to come and please is there any problem inserting a card meant for a PCI 3 slot into a PCI2?
Would ir still work adequately?

Pardon me, but are you talking about buying 2 system units for a single monitor then separate them with a KVM switch?
