Hp pavilion 500 to light gaming comp

I am looking into a hp pavilion 500 desktop with 8 gig ram 1.5 TB hard drive and AMD Radeon 7560 graphic card (I don't know if that is a good card) I want to add a second card and add more ram (32 gig) but from what I've heard the mother board isn't vary good. I want to use it for minecraft terraria and ftb with no lagg at all (with Skype in the background or internet). I hope that I don't have to upgrade the processor so if it's bad please tell me.(it's a AMD a 8 series again don't know how good it is) so it's 500 $ and I just want to know if the upgrades are posable or if I'm missing anything that I should upgrade and if the comp itself is good.

[ Edited ]

When requesting assistance, please provide the complete model name and/or product number of the HP computer in question. HP/Compaq makes thousands of models of computers. Without this information it may be difficult or impossible to assist you in resolving your issue.

 

Please enter the model/product information into HP's Online Consumer Support page and/or post it here for our review.

 

Most consumer HP computers don't support more than one graphics card, so this may be an issue for you. Also, a $500 computer isn't a gaming class computer and not going to do what you want it to do.

 

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you for the advice do you have any better ideas for a light gaming hp? (I can upgrade more like a good base comp to start with and upgrade to a gaming)

Re: Hp pavilion 500 to light gaming comp

Again, please post the HP model name and/or product number for our review. Without this information, we can only guess as to the specs in the model you are looking at. Without knowing more, I would say the baseline HP ENVY 700-000t Desktop Computer would be a good place to start.

 

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
