Graphics Card Upgrade Necessary?

Found out which iGPU youve got from Intel (https://ark.intel.com/products/90729/Intel-Core-i3-6100-Processor-3M-Cache-3-70-GHz-), then compared it to the card you wrote, youve got on www.videocardbenchmark.net. I suggest a GTX 1050 Ti, but I think u dont really need it if the only think u wanna do is emulating GC games.

Hi everyone! I'm just about finished building my pc, however I am not sure if I should upgrade my graphics card. Right now I have an Nvidia GeForce GT 610. I am planning to use my computer to emulate GameCube games. Should I upgrade my graphics card? And if so, which one?

 

Thank you in advance!!

What processor do you have? if it's like Coffee Lake that iGPU is actually faster than the GT 610

other components? CPU, memory, power supply

 

GC games don't need a lot of processing power so that card should be OK, will you be playing other games as well?

Your iGPU is faster than ur actual GPU, so u could just use this one for more power or upgrade ur actual GPU.

Thanks for showing me this! Which website did you use to find this information? And is there a graphics card you can suggest? Preferably in the $100-200 range

I'll probably stick with my iGPU but I can always upgrade later. Thank you so much for your help!
