I'm either buying a gaming pc or building and i forgot my wife got an asus around 2010-2012 to play the sims (the one game she plays lol) would it be worth trying to upgrade this into a gaming PC? Would it maybe be a little cheaper? I'd likely have to replace graphics card, processor, etc right? New to this but sick to death of console. Thanks for any help

It would help to know what the CPU, power supply and how much Ram it has.

Considering the age of the computer, i would say that building a new gaming pc would be much better idea.

well if he does happen to have a I5 2400, 2500, or 2600 or if hes a lucky a K series cpu its still very viable to upgrade.
