HEllo !

I need quick answer to my questions .

My old built specs :

Core 2 Duo E7500 @2.93 Ghz
Intel Corporation DG31PR (J3E1)
4.00GB Single-Channel DDR2 @ 333MHz
Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
550 Watts power supply with two 6-pin PCI-E connectors

I can get one graphics card for FREE out of these :

ZOATC Gtx 650 TI AMP ! Edition
ZOTAC Gtx 650 TI Boost
Asus Geforce Gtx 660 2 GB DirecCUII
R7 260X

Which one should I get ?
I know they may bottleneck the cpu but still , whats the best choice among these ?
Will be playing at 1600 x 900 resolution .

The card should play these games with Max-Ultra settings with min fps : 30 .

Tomb Raider
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
Far Cry 3 [ I doubt , but donno ]
Call OF Duty MW3 , Ghosts , Black Ops .

Thank You for reading , hoping for your answers.......

If you can get free then the best card out of the lot is the Asus GTX 660 DCU II

In CPU intensive games you'll have to play games on lower settings, looks like you're already aware of that :lol:

Cod Ghosts and MW3 both have crappy optimization so they run like crap for everyone

As for Tomb Raider, should be playable at the higher settings

From my own experience (I had a stock E8500), AC3 and AC4 do not run very well (bad optimization) so you'll probably have a hard time getting it to run on high settings

For your bro I'd probably get a 7770 or a similar class of card


okay so how about R7 260X or gtx 650 ti for him ?? how much low fps will he get than me ??

Depends how much more expensive they are, the 7770 is about the best value for his system, he could get the 260x or better if he plans to get a new CPU+mobo+RAM in the near future

I can't really estimate that, it'll depend from game to game, but in CPU intensive games they should perform about the same since the E7500 will be holding both of those cards back

So in your opinion , my build would run games like tomb raider COD Mw3 Black ops with around 30-45 fps with gtx 660 .

and how much less fps will I get with other gpu I mentioned with my build and these games ??

And really thank you for taking ur interest in my thread . ^_^

That'd be my guess, you'd have to tweak the settings a bit though, after some tweaking you should get some smooth frame rates (hopefully) even with a bottleneck

Again how much fps you lose depends on game, in CPU intensive games the 660 will be held back to half its potential, so it'd perform like those other cards, in pure GPU intensive games it should be a fair bit better, though this is all mostly guesswork and it depends on the actual games

hmm so I think gtx 650 ti boost will be good choice for him...

Depends how much more expensive it is, if he's thinking of getting an overhaul (CPU+mobo+memory) soon then it'd be a good choice, otherwise a cheaper GPU should do the trick as well

Yeah that's playable, but that's with a pretty decent overclock so you're going to get a fair bit less depending on game

Depends on resolution, you should be absolutely fine at 720p if you have a relatively lower res monitor

If they're at the same price then the 650 Ti Boost is the better out of the two, if he's not planning an upgrade anytime soon then he could consider a 7770, still performs quite well in modern games at medium settings
