I am upgrading an old pc for gaming. A really old one that it even has a disket card. I already bought a MoBo (Gigabyte GA78LMT-S2P) and the CPU (AMD II X2 270 3.4GHz Regor). All I need is a GPU that could play Battlefield 3, Borderlands 2 and League of Legends. My budget is between 130$-163$. Plz help me pick one gpu.
No, what I am saying is that pretty much ANY modern GPU can do it. If you look at the link I sent you, even the $65 HD6670 provides playable fps at 1680x1050. A $130 GPU would be complete overkill if you only plan to game at 1280x1024.
Problem is, as soon as you go higher resolution, the rest of the system, specifically the CPU, could hold you back with modern games. Battlefield 3 is quite hardware-intensive at higher settings. See this review:
Computer Resolution: 1280x1024
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 270 3.4GHz Regor
MoBo: Gigabyte GA78LMT-S2P
Games that I want to play are Battlefield 3, Bordrlands 2, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth and NFS Hot Pursuit.
The budget is to low because of the res of the monitor. Someone said that it would be a waste if I spent $130 for a graphic cards that I will only play games at a decent resolution.
