This is my pc right now:

CPU
AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 650 Processor 3.2 GHz

RAM
8GB

Video Card
ATI Radeon HD 4200

OS
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit


What do I need to upgrade to run games like battlefield 3 and Far Cry 3 at medium settings?
I mostly use my pc for college but I want to play some games on it to.

You have integrated graphics. Find out what PSU you have, and if possible, add a graphics card.

How do I find that out? I'm not really an expert when it comes to pc hardware.

It only has a 250W PSU. So, you may want to upgrade that as well.

Yeah, you'll want to upgrade your PSU to do any serious gaming. You may be able to run an HD 7750 with that PSU, but I'm not entirely sure. 250W is not much to work with.

Ok and what else do I need to upgrade? I basically wanna know everything I need to upgrade on my pc for it to be able to run battlefield 3 and games similar to it on medium settings. And if you have suggestion on specific hardware that I could buy to replace the hardware that is currently on pc that would also help me out greatly.

I'm not looking to build an amazing gaming pc, just to add things to my own and make it play some games. Cause right now I can barely play something like minecraft on it.

Honestly, you should start from scratch.
