My girlfriend is just starting to get into PC gaming and I want to encourage it because I don't really like console gaming. The problem is she has a broken hp touchsmart so the only game we can play together atm is League of Legends, on top of that my computer is 4-5 years old, I got it as a present and someone else made it for me but its been through a 6 or 7 moves and a lot of college parties so it barely works.
I know my way around the inside of a case pretty well because I've had lots of problems with my PC that I've had to fix myself but most of this is self taught however I really don't understand much about technical terms or to put it easier I don't know what I should be buying and don't want to make a mistake.
Is it worth upgrading my computer or should I start from scratch? Here is what I am working with.
under processors it lists Pentium D CPU 3 twice ?
ATI Radeon HD 4600
ISO 500 - power supply
Anything I should have included? And also where do I start with the other computer?
Oh I guess I should include my price range, 1000$ is probably my cutoff or close to that since we dont have a lot of money
