This question was posted by request of my buddy who isn't well informed with PC compnents - He wanted my opinion on what graphics card he can get to run on his machine.
N.B# this rig can NOT in any way be upgraded apart from PSU and GPU. Ram maybe but that isn't a guarantee.
Intel Pentium D 915 @ stock (note this board can't be OC'd or OC anything on that matter apart from ram timmings)
2GB DDR2 Transcend 800 Mhz Ram 5-5-5-18
2x320GB WD Blu SATA Drives
8600GT 256MB DDR3 Fatal1ty Edition
Delux case with 450W PSU (if needed i can post an image of the PSU's sticker showing amps)
Gaming Res: 1280 x 1024 with details maxed, if not medium
This rig used to be mine until i sold it off to him. He's now playing some old titles - ones I played when i had this rig.Black Ops runs but very choppy, Crysis 2 runs but it isn't at playable framerates, thus the inquiry of a new GPU. I have my ideas but i could be wrong.
I live in Bangladesh, and i could get a hold of old cards via a site similar to Ebay/craiglist.
He has my Samsung 732 N plus monitor and he's postponed his GPU purchase until the card's life has ended in his hands May God let him achieve it after finishing all the titles I had finished while I had the 8600GT.
