1)Can you please list the specification of your computer?

 

2) What is your budget if you want to upgrade?
 

3) What is your main goal of upgrading? Is it for gaming, video editing or streaming?

Well, i did configure a PC for you but it turn out less than $650 so i don't know if you are going to take it.

 
CPU- AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor 
RAM- G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
GPU- HIS Radeon R9 270 2GB IceQ X² Video Card 
Motherboard- Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ 
Storage-Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
Case-Corsair 200R Mid Tower
DVD Drive- Black SATA 24X DVD Burner
PSU-EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified
 
 
P:S: I switch some of the hardware and i manage to drop price a lots.
 
Also you can reuse your current 1TB drive, which will give you plenty spaces for games and applications.

That configuration should let you play games today but not maximum settings, but with some game settings tweak you can get it stable at 50 fps. Also, i want to throw in this CPU cooler as well, http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-212-RR-212E-20PK-R2/dp/B005O65JXI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1436340469&sr=8-1&keywords=hyper+212+evo&pebp=1436340470048&perid=17BC2FKFZT49R6XFYNXQ

 

This CPU cooler called Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO, is a air cooling for your CPU which perform ways much better than Intel and AMD stock cooling come with the box. At the price of $35 which can save your CPU from overheating and give headroom for overclocking which is a great deal ehh?.

Hi I own an acer predator AG3610-UR30p. I have not opened it up or anything. I want to upgrade the internals so i can game better. Im new to this computer upgrading stuff, just a heads up. i

 

RainFlash,

 

Here's my recommended computer upgrades based on your budget.

 

I have selected an 8 core AMD A3+ processor along with a well made Gigabyte motherboard.

Gigabyte motherboards have one of the highest reliability ratings in the industry.

You can't go wrong with this.

 

You can still continue to use the hard drive, and the DVD drive. 

 

 
CPU: AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor  ($136.48 @ Amazon) 
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 R5 ATX AM3+ Motherboard  ($149.99 @ Amazon) 
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X 2GB WINDFORCE Video Card  ($169.99 @ Amazon) 
Total: $647.05
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Sure a new shiny computer is great, but IMO you should upgrade the computer you have to an i7-3770k (unlocked) LGA 1155 H2 3.9 turbo core. The i7-3770k is better than the AMD FX 6300 as far as gaming goes. Atleast 10% gaming increase right there from the get go. Then thrown in a budget 256bit card that's better than the one you got.

$334.99

$184.99

 

Total $519.98

Well perofrmance costs money. If you want top high settings etc you're looking at 2000+ for a rig.
