I have seen everything on how to build a pc and basically have it drilled in my memory but now I'm deciding to go with a prebuilt gamin pc which is why I'm watching this. My only problem is having windows and other stuff installed, and what to do for future upgrades

Should I download some software from EVGA? Should somehow turn of Intel integrated graphics? Please send help internet brethren!

The LGA1155 socket prebuilt PCs are the most bang for your buck PC to be upgrading. If you want to spend $250 or under on a PC this is the way to go! 1.) Buy a *MINI TOWER ONLY*(NO SFF) Optiplex anything above a 700 model for $50-$140 depending on the CPU, RAM, and HDD quality to fit your needs. Make sure the CPU won't bottle neck the GPU you plan on buying. 2.) Once bought sell the PSU in the prebuilt(for like $10+shipping) 3.) Buy an 80+ rated 500W ($50 dollars max) and put it into the system 4.) The remaining balance buy a used entry level gpu and install it in the system 5.) BOOM gaming PC with amazing performance and value I've done this and this is the only WORTH IT method to buy a prebuilt Otherwise you're better off buying individual used parts and building it from scratch, or if you have the money buy new!

Could you do a video on the Dell Inspiron 545 desktop pc? I have one, I know that it can be upgraded because it used to be my step dads and he upgraded the graphics card I think. But I want to know what other things I could upgrade. Like can I upgrade the motherboard?The ram? Can I upgrade to a better graphics card? Can I use a Niveda Graphics card? What brands of graphics cards and mother boards could I use? Will it support dual monitors? Can I use it as a gaming and live streaming pc streaming for twitch streaming?

I have a HP pavillion p6755sc (from like 2011) with a AMD athlon x4 640, 6 gig ram and 300 watt psu, currently running an amd Radeon HD 6570. Motherboard is The H-Alpinia-RS780L-uATX (Alpinia). I wonder If upgrading to some sort of gtx 1050 is a good idea? After puttningen in ssd, It got some serious speed, will a new gpu make some improvments as well?

I did this for my friend. He had a system like this with an i5 7400. He had a 1 TB HDD and a 8 GB of single stick DDR4 RAM, so I threw in the RX 460 and for good measure (simply for faster boot up) I put in a 128 GB SSD since he was on a budget. A couple months later, I added another 8 GB of RAM and now he's got a pretty good gaming system. It's not a beast, but it's still a pretty good one for what he ended up paying it for it all at the end.

So I recently tried to do this myself and your tutorial really helped! I'm just wondering if there were any issues you had to go through with installing the drivers for the RX 460. I've had a lot and I've done a lot of the things I've seen online, but haven't found a solution yet.
