Okay....i am planning on rebuilding (or replacing) my computer parts. It's an old computer, don't even know what it has currently cause I am not using it (mainly cause it's slow and running on windows 7). I know I need to upgrade to at least windows 10, but I also need to upgrade the graphics card and processor. I know what is recommended, but when I look them up SOOOOOOO many options comes up - it's confusing!!
So....I'm looking for someone to tell me EXACTLY what I should look for. Please be as specific as possible (or even include a link). Looking for something reasonable cost though cause I'm not made of money lol probably gonna take me a few months to save up for all this.
I'm also planning on upgrading the hard drive to about 1 tb if possible.....
If anyone can help, please let me know. I know computers (at least I know the more then anyone in my family), but I'm lost when it comes to rebuilding or replacing parts. lol

    It really actually depends on what you want to do and what you like. I'd recommend a different forum more specialized in PC building, like /r/BuildMeAPC. For that specific subreddit you'll need to know the following information and have it in the thread:
    • Budget
    • Operating System
    • Peripherals (mouse, keyboard, monitor) if needed
    • Where you're located (to see if you're near a Microcenter, although you probably don't have to include this since you can look it up yourself)
    • Any other personal preferences, such as overclocking, if you want

    Maple specifically is an old game, specialized for single-core, and doesn't make much use of GPU features, so multi-core systems won't provide much of a boost. But if you plan on using the PC to play other games, it'd be wise to invest a multi-core system and a decent GPU.

    My PC struggles with even MapleStory. That's a real special kind of garbo xD
