dear all in theses sentences
1)Tried installing the latest game only to find out your graphics card is six generations too old to play it?
why they use installing not tried to install
2)Prices for desktop PCs start as low as $300 and range all the way up to $5,000
I've not understood range all the way up to
your first question is why not try to install. The answer is,there isn't such a big difference. There are some verbs ,like try, that go both with an infinitive and a gerund. Try to install means that you made an effort to install , whereas try installing that you experimented on it but you failed.
As far as your second question is concerned, a range means a variety, in this text means a variety of prices up to the price of 5.000 $.
Hope I have helped you
