Hey guys my GPU randomly died,i had a nvidia 8600gt and it lasted like 6 years and served me well but this little old boy has to be replaced.

i'm broke so i can't afford expensive GPUs,here at my local store they sell low budget sucky GPUs what do i choose from Radeon 6450 2gb or Nvidia 610? ps:if you got some other low budget but good gpus just let me know!

My purpose is to play nowadays games at least at medium-low.Thanks in adavance

You can't play modern games with any settings on either of those GPUs. Round up more money and get at least a HD 7770 from AMD.

You could look for used or refurbished GPUs. I think the HD 6670 2GB DDR3 is the minimum for playing today's games. So work towards it, but of course, the HD 7770 would be a better choice.

Dark Souls 2 is actually pretty light on the GPU.

Online retailers are sometimes cheaper than local stores, so try looking out for some that ship to your country
