I'm just curious if wether I should buy a whole new desktop or I can just upgrade some parts? I'm not really good with computer specs.

Here are my desktop's specs:

Processor: Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz 2.67 GHz
RAM: 4GB (3.25 usable)
System Type: 32-bit OS
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 5450

You should get a new laptop because sometimes upgrading the parts usually causes "issues".

Gday.

I would also recommend a new PC as your existing hardware is not very current and not worth upgrading..   A desktop is preferable for gaming as it gives a much better upgrade path than a laptop.

If you give us a budget and the country where you would purchase, we can give you some options.
