@PCguy1

 

No, you can't upgrade nor add because:

 

1.  Intel HD Graphics 4600  comes with the processor (ie CPU),

2. Your machine (motherborad) has no room to add

@PCguy1, welcome to the forum.

 

The motherboard for the computer doesn't have a video slot.  Therefore, it can't be upgraded to a dedicated video card.  Here is the Motherboard Specifications page.  Look at the section titled "Expansion Slots" to see what is available.

 

If you let me know what you want to do with the computer and the price that you want to pay, I will be glad to help you find a model that will meet your needs.

First of all, thank you for answering my question.

I want to know if you could really help me with this computer situation.

If you think that you can help me, here are my preferences (or however is called)

 

The price would be 1160 dollars (maximum)

Operating System: Windows 10 (64-bit) with latest service pack

Processor: Intel Core i5 3330 or AMD Radeon R7 260X

Memory: 4 GB RAM

 

Please remember that if you find something that is better than what I wrote and enters the price please tell me about that.

(I will be searching for a PC that fits my preferences too)

 

NOTE: If you cant help me or dont want please tell me and if you can help me and want please tell me.

Thank you!

Thank you for the additional information, @PCguy1.

 

You should be able to do nicely with the $1,150.  I do have one last question, since you were looking at an AIO, is this your first preference or would you want a desktop or laptop.  With the desktop you would need to buy a monitor, but you can add a dedicated video card at any time.
