If you can't then you might need to upgrade your CPU, Motherboard and RAM. If you have to upgrade a good recomendation is https://www.microcenter.com/product/5006465/intel-core-i7-12700k,-msi-z690-a-pro-wifi-ddr4,-g-skill-ripjaws-v-16gb-ddr4-3200-kit,-computer-build-bundle
If I upgrade to what u suggest, what does Microcenter charge to install?
It really depends on what you're going to use the computer for and if you either want to upgrade the parts or start fresh. Personally I'd be either getting a new pc or building one myself since any hardware will vastly out perform what you have currently. For the upgrade service I believe that it would potentially cost around $150. (Just spoke to service and you'll be looking at possibly $200 for us to perform the upgrade.)
