Hello everyone. I recently picked up this PC from the recycle bin, and decided to surprise my best friend with it on his Birthday this monthe.

He currently has an AMD E-450 (Garbage) in his sytem. I will reuse his HDD, so no need to worry about that.

This is the PC currently. The Motherboard is Micro ATX, by Dell, Four DIMM slots, four SATA 3gb/s, and AM3.

I amn't sure how to go about the upgrade process, though I am certain I need a GPU.

No need for a new PSU. The 300 watt one is actually fairly unused. The computer is barely used it seems. No dust to speak of and the protective plastic is still on.

RX 460 does sound very nice.

Thanks!
