    You can upgrade with a GT1030 and 8GB of RAM dual-channel.

    The cpu is soldered so you can't upgrade it.

    The XC-830 is an Acer type desktop that is pretty restricted to upgrades, you can upgrade the memory and disk drives but that is as far as I would go. The power supply is restricted and the mobo is also specific to these models. You would be much better off getting and/or building a proper gaming platform from scratch.

    can i put a geforce gt 1030 in it

  • billseybillsey ACE Posts: 19,102 Trailblazer
    Very likely, no. The XC-830 came with a 65W power adapter and the XC-830G came with a 90W power adapter. The difference between those two is what was available for powering the GPU. A GT 1030 uses more than 25W of power, so will in all likelihood not work, even if you switch to the larger supply.

    Your PC was not designed to be a gaming machine. Even if you stretch to the hardware limits, you will still be unhappy with its performance for games, particularly the modern high demanding games. I would suggest saving up the money and get a new and decent gaming machine. Probably something close to USD $800-$1000 range. If you can build PC yourself, maybe you can cut the cost by $100 or so.
