I know my ram is fine cause got 32gb of it probably overkill for light tasks, but light games I'm having a hard time getting reasonable fps here's little detail about the nasty pc I have

Processor: Ryzen 5 2400g
Graphics: Standard built in graphics (this is the cause but psu limits me for graphic card options)
Psu: 350w

So basically hard time trying get a graphic card withing that psu limit cause it's kinda hard to get this pc apart as it's a prebuild so called gaming pc but I only mainly play few light games.

Well if the PSU is holding you back, you might need to get a new computer meant to be taken apart.  Is the PSU because of a power grid limitation where you live or is it because of the PSU being too low in the computer itself?  I've never heard of a 'gaming computer' having too low of a PSU.  Like if you run it, does it blow a circuit in your room or house?  If it does, you might be stuck unless you upgrade the power supply into that room.

Your Ryzen 5 2400g is also quite limited but okay for light games.  You can buy an older NVIDIA GTX 960 for less tat $200 and see a huge increase in your gaming capabilities.

Sounds pretty limited.  If you want a better experience and more power, I would recommend starting over with a computer from scratch.  A pre-built compute isn't meant to be upgraded or tampered with, minus extra RAM.  Anyone can add RAM, even on a Mac.

Even though this pc is a pre-built it can be taken apart I just got no clue on stripping pc's or even upgrading, and no the pc runs pretty ok doesn't blow anything the psu can be changed I think held in by few screws at the back just no clue when it comes to upgrades I might have to do my own research.

The link posted below by Wolfwood is pretty good actually.  It can teach you the basics for sure.

I can help some.

Also this guide helped me out a little bit understand some basics and some confusing things I had in a recent upgrade. 

How to Build A PC

Unless you want to get a Mac which has everything in it and you don't need to worry about anything.  It all just runs smoothly and perfectly from the get go.  Plug and go within seconds.

PC's are much more work, constant problems, issues, and little things going wrong.

Lastly, since this is clearly a PC and not a Mac, you need to make sure the components you buy can fit in the tower.  If not, you may want to consider a bigger tower to fit the components and devices you want inside of it.

The main tool you will need us simply a screwdriver and gloves that don't attract static. Everything else is research in terms of which components you want in your computer.  There are how to videos and articles for everything now days.  It just takes a bit of time to find them.

That article is a good start.  If you got more questions, feel free to ask.  I recently upgraded some things so I am sort of fresh on these ideas.

I really hope they accomplish this without getting it cancelled by Bethesda.


Skyblivion sounds like it will be fantastic.  I wish it had a better name though.

Some new computer news. Apple is leaving Intel and taking full control of their computers, including a new chip.  Now when you spend the big money for an Apple Computer, they will deliver on power that PC cannot emulate.  Apple is introducing a slew of new proprietary hardware for their computers and already, they've been shown to run laps around even the very fastest of PC's.  Gaming and Apple Computers is now going to be more possible than ever and already their new products are getting glowing reviews.

Check some of the new below.

Apple's remaking Mac computers, and it's taking control to do it.

If I could toss all my PC crap and light it on fire in a dumpster, I would.  If Apple can make a computer that can DO IT ALL, I am so on board.  This is definitely a good major leap in the right direction. :)  PC sucks.

I'd be down for that too.  PC's are nothing but a problem.

More like a tech demo at this point without a name, but a guy named John Lin is making an incredible looking project.  Amazing water physics, lighting physics, destruction engine, AND, you don't need a powerful computer to play it.  I will keep an eye on the development of this project.

The Kingdom Hearts games will be coming to the EPIC Games Store exclusively on 3/30/21.  Hopefully it comes to more stores.

News Release

Will it come on Steam and why is EPIC Games charging so much?
