Hi Royd,

Not an expert by no means but looking at the Novabench marks, both the CPU and GPU need upgrading to get to a mid level machine, currently it is equivalent to a budget laptop.

Saying that you have used an AM4 mobo so that allows you to upgrade to a Ryzen CPU, for me I would start that way as this will be cheaper than the outlay for a new GPU.

Alternatively get him playing Counter strike, it will run that well :)

Mine isn't much better! https://novabench.com/view/1655151

Hi Royd. you could try upping your RAM 1st. I done this years ago and my PC went a hell of a lot faster. Its a cheaper way to get more out of It. If you can afford the extra's that Cali said then go for IT but I would do the RAM 1st
