So this is the current pc spec. Also the PSU is a 500W not sure if nonamer or something not that great. I made this pc 4 years ago..
Before I upgrade the pc as a whole ( which I cannot afford atm ) I'm looking for a GPU Upgrade. The current one died and it's most likely the GPU and not the PSU.
Im looking to get something in a price range of max 100$ that can run decently ( Not greatly or ultra settings ) World of Warcraft, LoL, maybe some other crap games here and there ( Nothing end-market ultra settings ).
At first I was looking at a http://www.gainward.com/main/vgapro.php?id=886 but Im not sure if this will be bottlenecked by cpu and mobo. Anyone can recommend a decent video card for this bad setup?
You could go for a GTX 650, not the Ti model, just the normal 650. They run right at $100.It might be bottlenecked by the CPU, but if you plan on rebuilding a new system, this will work perfectly fine in an updated system
Here is a link to one:
MSI N650-MD1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 650 1GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I would go this route: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... if you get a 7750 though, make sure it's DDR5 like that one, there's a big performance difference between that and the DD3 kind.
If you could possibly scrape some more money together, I would look at a 650Ti, it'll probably be bottle necked by your current CPU, but you said your going to upgrade it soon right? Then you'll have a much better card for an extra $50.
the 630 and the 4850 are about the same performance so if you upgrede, you'll a better card than a 630 as a 4850 is about the same performance as a HD6750 / GT630 except wihtout DX11 (but WOW and LOL runs on 9/10 no problem)
To really upgrade, you'll need a 150$ card as throw 100$ for a similar card isn't worth it and if you have less than that, the cards that you'll check will be slower than your old card...
You can buy a 6750 to have similar performance but it'll still cost you 100$ so i suggest to buy a better card and keep it for your next build...
Thanks for the feedback, i'll look into the market. Unfortunately the ones priced 100$ on newegg are priced 150 or more where I live. Damn shame that newegg can't ship internationally. As far as I read, it realy doesn't matter which card I buy if it has ddr5? It's an improvement
