Good gpu for under 70$
Hello, i am a heavy pc gamer and my pc just isnt doing it with. i just wanna know if there is a good gpu for under 70$ that will run in my pc ... SPECS :Sony VAIO RB38G - P4 550J 3.4 GHz video card: intel media accelator 900 . 250 gp of storage idk RAM sorry
$55 PNY VCGGT2405G5XXB GeForce GT 240 512MB 128-bit GDDR5
However I'd honestly get a new PC ASAP if you are a gamer. The P4 sucked when it was new.
$335 eMachines EL1358-53 Desktop PC Athlon II X2 220(2.80GHz) 3GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Add more RAM, and a decent low profile GFX card, and it will demolish your PC.
or a new build:
$120 BIOSTAR ECO HD61 Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3 (LGA1155) Intel Socket H2(LGA1155) (Barebones)
$78 Intel Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge 2.6GHz 2 x 256KB L2 Cache 3MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core
$19 Sony Optiarc CD/DVD Burner 24X
$40 Seagate Barracuda ST3500413AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb ($6.50 off with DVD above)
$23 CORSAIR 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
Pick up a copy of Windows 7 ASAP.
According to the system specs your PC comes with 1 gig of RAM, you want to up that, looks like 2 is the max for the system.
I'd get a Radeon 5670 instead of the 240, faster and same power use. Maybe a few bucks more, but worth it, it's right at $70. You can move it to a new system later on and it will still be a decent card to use even with a new CPU, etc...
Although a P4 is pretty slow compared to any current system, a 3.4 gig P4 will be able to play quite a few games still when paired with a decent card. WoW, Half-Life 2, etc... Should even be able to handle newer games at lower settings even. Just not with 1 gig of RAM.
