Hello. I have a HP Pavilion All-in-One and am thinking about upgrading it. I am currently stuck with freezing Google Chromes, not responding applications, and games with 20 fps on the lowest graphics settings.
Specs (Sorry if I missed some stuff):
Model: HP Pavilion 23-q140t
CPU: Intel Core i3-4160T 3.10 GHz
RAM: 4 GB
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4400
I was thinking about upgrading the RAM to at least 8GB and the GPU to something at least more decent. But as I did some research, I realized that the GPU was soldered and I couldn't change it out.
Some other random but may be useful information:
I am thinking of maybe getting a few PC games but I usually play on the casual side (thinking about getting Rainibow Six Siege and play it with my friends).
I do not have that much money to spend - around 400 to 500 bucks would be the max.
I am upgrading to just get generally a smooth and not rage-inducing experience with applications and to get at least 30-60 fps on games.
Now here are my questions.
1. Should I upgrade to 8 or 16GB RAM?
2. Is it worth it to get a new motherboard with a better GPU?
3. Is it just downright more worth it to get a new PC with better hardware?
4. Will upgrading my hard drive to much?
Thanks for your help.
