I want play new videogames, but my pc doesn't collaborate..
i have a cpu intel pentium E5700 (dual-core 3.00GHz), a 1680x1050 monitor, 4gb ram and an nvidia geforce 8400GS. I think that the weak point is the graphic card, isn't it? Which one do you suggest me to buy?
FID/VID Control yes
FID range 6.0x - 15.0x
Max VID 1.288 V
Northbridge Intel P35/G33/G31 rev. 10
Southbridge Intel 82801GB (ICH7/R) rev. A1
Graphic Interface PCI-Express
PCI-E Link Width x16
PCI-E Max Link Width x16
Memory Type DDR2
Memory Size 4096 MBytes
Channels Dual, (Symmetric)
if you need one more information tall me, the faithful CPU-Z knows everythings XD
so some games that i'd like to run are: metro 2033, mass effect 3(maybe this 3rd episode isn't wonderfull like the prevoius ones, but the story is fantastic), hitman absolution, deus ex human revolution, borderlands 2, assassin creed 2, etc
ok i've opened the case and those are all the informations about my pc current trasformer:
AC IMPUT 115/230 VAC 10A/5A 50/60Hz
in base of this surprising novelty could we definitively decree which is the best graphic card for my pc and me(reminding that my budget is about 100euro, and i want to use my pc to run videogames)?
let's start whith the final televoting! XD
The Great Randini a SSD will NOT help with game performance only load times
foscooter first generation core 2's (Intel ICH7+ SB's) had SATA2 this is a 7 series core 2 duo (gen2) ofcourse it has SATA2 (ich7-10)
A Core 2 Duo wont cope with newer games its a mid range cpu from ~3 years ago
8400GS = display card
This is a budget system its probably not worth "upgrading" (not much more then video card etc) better off with a new rig you dont want to use a cramped case for a new build nor a low end psu or anything else from your current rig be careful how much you spend on this older rig
