I’ll start with I know a little about PC building, but I really don’t follow the trends.
My son wants to get into PC gaming for some reason and he bought a cheap, older “gaming” PC from some guy online that claimed it played fortnite and GTA fine. The important specs he has are:
Intel i5 (first gen probably)
8 gig ram ( not the cool looking heat sink gaming ram. Regular generic stuff.)
1 gig ddr Generic looking graphics card
2 tb HDD
Cool looking gaming PC case w/glass side 3 fans and cool led lights
I know nothing about the Mobo or power supply. It basically looks like a cheap budget pc with a mediocre graphics card in a cool gaming pc case to me. But he’s excited about it. Downloads steam and try’s to play oblivion on it. Gets choppy at times. Not impressed at all. I doubt it could handle newer games.
So anyways, he’s looking at upgrade stuff straight away. My thaughts are graphics card w/4 gig ram as all the newer ones seem to have. And jump ram up to 16 gig gaming type stuff. And a small SSD to put the games on.
Minimal investment. Would that be enough to get him into more modern games. Possibly eso for dad? Hehehe
Oh yeah, and then overclocking. Would that be something that could be considered even? And how do you even go about doing that?
