I bought a pre-build PC from Office Max for $200 and I decided to give Team Fortress 2 a try.  I can't go back to playing FPS games on consoles now.  Even though I was complete rubbish at Halo, I could tell something was wrong with the controls.  The sensitivity never felt right.  Consoles do all right with some genres, but I'm nowhere near as excited about them as I used to be.  Nintendo is the only console provider I'm still invested in, but even they have managed to disappoint me.  So, I'm in the PC master race now, and I'm looking into upgrading my PC.  It was the lowest end PC in the store.

 

OS: Windows 10 Home

Processor: AMD E1-6010 APU with Radeon R2 (1.35 Ghz)

RAM: 4 GB

 

I'd like to upgrade to the point where I can play games such as Fallout 4, Skyrim, and Telltale's Batman but would rather not exceed $200 in my upgrade.  A local store already has some upgrades that would do fine, but I want to make the best purchase I can.

 

On a side note: is there a way to check the specifications of my power supply?  That didn't seem to be displayed when I checked my specs.

What is the exact make and model of PC you purchased?

 

Your processor is very low-end and you'll need an add-in graphics card to be able to play anything newer at a reasonable speed.

A Lenovo is the manufacturer, what is the specific model you are using?

 

By having specific information, we can look up your PC online and see what is compatible.
