Help with Desktop: HP Pavilion 500-223w
Just needed some opinions on this desktop I've recently bought from Walmart for $260 including tax. It was on clearance. Should I keep this and put a $100 video card for it to be HTPC (60%) + some gaming - 40% (hoping to play xcom 2 at medium or low setting?) or build one under $350 that meet the needs? Suggestions of graphic cards or builds are welcome.. I'm not too proficient in the PC world..
Thank you in advance!!
