At the moment i have a Intel i5 3470 and a Zotac 9500GT 1gb DDR2 and i read that the Intel i5 3470 has HD 2500 integrated graphics. I want to know which one is better for gaming (until i get my GPU). The HD 2500 supports DX11. can anyone advise me on which one to use for the time being
Thanks. I have the DDR2 one i am saving for a GTX 650. Another thing that i don't understand my friend has a laptop with weaker CPU and he has the HD 3000 but when i play Farcry 3 the game lags when people talk to me but on his laptop there is no lag whatsoever.
You are really wasting your CPU considering those weakling graphic cards. Your CPU can handle even a high end GPU. A GTX 650 is a very poor choice cause there is the GTX 650 Ti which is miles faster. Don't let the similar naming confuse you. IMO you can even consider a HD 7850 or a GTX 660, of course if you can afford but i'd still stay away from GTX 650. And about FC3 performance: game settings matter a lot, perhaps your friend is playing at the lower settings
