I would definitely invest in a new pc, or just buy a new graphics card. its worth building a new one if you have the money. I used to always upgrade part by part until I got a job and honestly life is 1000x easier when you can upgrade multiple parts at a time.

I would start with buying a gtx 1050 ti, you can keep your same processor and run games much better and its a rather cheap card.

If I just upgrade graphics will that affect the onboard graphics I have now?

You could sure keep some of the parts, such as the PSU, case, RAM but, it depends on what new parts you get.

I would suggest changing the CPU and GPU.

What is your budget and what games do you want to play ect?

I'm just gonna be getting a new computer that one finally gave out. But I don't have much experience building pc's in thinking about buying a pre-build one anyone know a good site to buy pre-build pcs not really looking to spend over $300 as the only game I would play on it is minecraft and everyday web searching
