Hi, Anyone know how to upgrade the graphic card on my computer? I would like to increased the performance without buying a new computer, but replacing the hardware inside it. Which hardware can i replace to improve performance? Also which graphic card should i buy that can fit and improve my computer? My computer is an IQ504 Hp TouchSmart Window 8.1, i use it for all but mostly for gaming and i get 5-20 fps, i can't buy a new computer but willing to spend on new hardware that can help. 


This is my system information:

Sorry to say forget trying to get it to run much if any better, you would be better off selling and putting the money toward an upgradable tower.

These systems were/are not made...so that users can upgrade components.

 

Take a look at the lack of slots which would allow upgrades of components.

 

The manufacturers of these other-than-desktop systems...I call them "throw-away computers"...know what they are doing.  Future sales depend, in part, on user inability to upgrade components, IMO.

If gaming is your primary focus...it's probably better to build/assemble a desktop system.

 

?Cheap" and "good" are two relative terms...that the manufacturers of computer systems d0 not normally link together.  Think of it this way...if system manufacturers (Dell, HP, et alia) sold systems that reflected both of those characteristics...how many return customers would they have and how would they sell systems to them?

 

The only way to ensure continued quality in a system (IMO)...is to build/assemble a desktop, where the individual components can be replaced/upgraded when the user desires such...at much less than a new system would cost.

Can i use this to build a desktop gaming computer? : http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/  Also why does it already cost $900, And i'm only half way of choosing hardwares. Is it possible to build a gaming pc computer for $500 or less? Also i don;t know anything about building a computer, i might need to watch Youtube video to guide me and is there anyway i can use the hardware on my IQ504 Hp Touchsmart to the new computer i'm building? Like the memories , storage, and some hardware so i won't need to buy that many stuff. I also don't need an operating system, because i still have a Window 8.1 License key and disc. Thanks, I will also check out the 2 forum link you gave me.

Please...visit the forums that I linked to...if you have questions or want information concerning those areas.  This forum is for internal hardware issues and the personnel in the forums I linked to can provide you pertinent, reliable info on their areas of focus.

Hi, I found this after researching on how to build a computer, http://pcpartpicker.com/p/VW2ZD3 Its only cost $300, Will it be able to run games at 60 fps or 50 fps above? Also is this the complete built, is there anything else i'm missing or need to buy and add? Is this the best choice for cheap fast gaming computer? I'm still unsure how does building computer works, and if its will works.

If you want to be able to play GTA5...Then no...

 

I've yet to build my own, but will do a complete overhaul to an already existing system, If you want to build your own, then you'll have to do some serious research, including some excellent youtube "How-to" vids just do a search for "Build guide"
