Hi

I need your precious help. I have this pc:

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L, LGA 775
CPU Dual Core E2200 2.2Ghz
RAM 3 Gb
Geforce 9500GT

I want to upgrade my system to play rfactor2. I have already ordered a CPU Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93Ghz, and now i am looking for a new GPU.

Any suggestions please?

Thanks

It's a VERY old rig you have there, it's hard getting a new GPU that won't be bottlenecked by your rig. Highest I would go would be Radeon 7750, your pc would even bottleneck that GPU, but I think it's your best bet on upgrading.

It wouldn't bottleneck HD 7750. E7500 overclocks nicely.

@OP: What is your power supply unit? If it has a 6-pin connector, I'd go with HD 7770.

No it hasn't. I need a new power supply for this.

If you're willing to go for a new power supply unit, HD 7770 would definitely be your best option.

However, if you don't want/can't do that, going for HD 7750 would be acceptable.
