OK thanks, that helps explain what you have now.

 

That All in One (AiO) is 4 years old. Its OK for someone who only needs an email machine or office work with the luxury of no need for a tower.  But as far as gaming is concerned, its a potato with only a 6th gen i3 and no graphics card. Specs...

You didn't mention what games you are playing, but now days pretty much any/most games require a dedicated graphics card and a CPU that can match.

 

If you decide you cannot upgrade to a more powerful machine, the only thing you can do is pull the old Hard Drive out and replace it with a 2.5 inch Sata SSD and reinstall Windows. It will not improve gaming, but will load Windows faster.

Like one of these (does not have to be Samsung)...

Let me know what I can further help with.

 

PS: I know your frustration of salesmen. They are there to sell, no matter what.

Hello @Jacob122 

 

All in Ones are definitely not gaming machines, unless you call solitaire a game.

Would you tell me what the Product Number is? You can find it in the HP Support Assistant.
