I am looking to purchase a Nvidia graphic card for Dell Dimension E521, so that my PC would run the graphics at the maximum setting.
My processor is currently AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3600+ x 2
I have 4 Gb of RAM installed.
My power supply is 600w.
I am currently experimenting with Linux so the graphic card should be from Nvidia. I am currently searching for a better CPU which should give me the maximum processing soon.
I hope someone can guide me with the graphic card. I change graphic cards all the time, but I do not know how to find one at the maximum processing.
If you do rebuild your PC I suggest you get something more like THIS:
1) i5-4570 Intel CPU ($190 USD)
2) 1150 motherboard ($100+, I like most Asus boards)
3) 8GB DDR3 memory ($65 for a 2x4GB G. Skill 1600MHz kit)
You're looking at about $550+ depending on the graphics card you choose.
I assume you're following Steambox slightly and plan to dual-boot STEAMOS + your Distro at some point?
