  1. The two graphic cards that come in my mind are like this-
    ATI Radeon HD 6450 or Sparkle NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 2 GB DDR3
    Please tel me.
  2. Processor Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E7400 @ 2.80GHz, 2793 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)
    BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 0606, 3/11/2009

    Total Physical Memory 1.99 GB
    Available Physical Memory 413 MB
    Total Virtual Memory 3.98 GB
    Available Virtual Memory 1.71 GB
    Page File Space 1.99 GB
  3. so by using this card I wont get any lags? :o
  4. I'm pretty sure with that CPU/GPU combo it won't be smooth at higher resolutions.

    Take a look at this chart:


    Your processor is in the same hierarchy as the G620 (Gaming CPU Hierarchy Chart). At that resolution and graphics preset, it should be smooth. To achieve higher resolutions and quality presets, you're going to have to crack the $100 mark.

    Take a look at these links:

  5. so tell me I wont be able to play those games? :(
  6. Honestly, save your money. You could waste the money and not play your games, or you could not play your games and save your money. This is how the industry works. Companies create the supply, Gaming companies create the demand.
  7. no man..i wanna playy :(
  8. Than you will need to invest a decent amount of money. Realistically any card less than $100 is on par or worse than the intel i-series integrated graphics.

    This is probably the cheapest card I would trust, but i would spend a few extra bucks and get an EVGA.

    $72 is such an odd number; can you explain why you chose that as your budget? Why not $100? If your answer is 'because I only have $72' it would seem that maybe saving money for a better card is an option you should seriously consider. Depending on your age and responsibilities, I would say that there are much better things to spend your money on if that's the last $72 to your name.

    Hi Dark, I have to say that I disagree with your statement there that any card less than $100 is on par or worse than the integrated graphics from Intel. :)


    At the OP's budget of 72 dollars, I would highly recommend looking on ebay for older generation video cards (e.g., an HD 4870, a GTX 275, something in that range).

    True that, I will agree that buying a used card would be cheaper. But if I am already on a very limited budget, I don't think I would want to take the gamble of buying something like a used computer component, unless it was a close friend. Even if it wasn't on a tight budget buying used components is always 'risky'.
  12. It can be, yes. I've sold several video cards via Ebay/classifieds and had people happy with the results.

    I still have a 4870 512MB card for sale: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/103410-8-4870-512mb-athlon-3800-550w#t601620
