1. What is this PC going to do?
2. About the OS. If this was mine I'd try to get the free W10 upgrade such as noted on the web. Example: https://www.google.com/search?q=still+get+windows+10+free+2019
3. I missed if there is gaming and what GPU you have now.
See my example at link to follow where I used the 1050 Ti then the 1060.
*Disclaimer* I've never used this forum before, if this is the wrong place for this or if there is a better site for this type of request, please let me know and disregard the bulkier part of my nonsense below*
I'm just looking for help on ideas for upgrading my current PC, which I built years ago, and completely forgot how to do so since.
The specs are below...I definitely want to buy an additional SSD drive that is larger to replace my current C drive (the 120GB SSD), and will be upgrading to Windows 10. Otherwise I am not looking to do a complete overhaul, just ideally replacing and/or adding some elements that could improve its performance, specifically for video editing (a dedicated graphics card? more RAM?) . Budget is also very small, so the cheaper the better.
Any ideas, insight or pushes in the right direction would be a great help and much appreciated! Anger for possibly putting this question in the wrong or inappropriate place, if accurate, is also welcome and expected. Thanks for your time!
