So my dad has a PC with an i7-4790k 8Gb of DDR3 and a GTX 750Ti, i was thinking of upgrading my old laptop to and desktop, and i would like to know the best solution for it:

 

First One : Get my dads PC buy a graphics card and more ram, and build him a cheap PC

 

Second One : Build a new PC from zero with a budget of +- 1000$

 

Sorry for my bad english it isnt my main language so, thanks anyway :)

That is an issue.

 

eBay or Amazon? Have a friend buy you the parts in their country and ship them to you?

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Then I'll go solution 1. Won't be difficult to buy Dad a used (and not too old) office prebuilt system, replace the hard drive with an SSD or add an SSD and fresh copy of Windows, job done.

 

IT's still better to know the full specs of the current machine though.

Not really. I don't do cutting edge gear any more, the stuff I build is more in an experimental vein, and I wouldn't be a good choice to get suggestions from on a modern build.
