Need Suggestion for A Budget GPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys!

My friend wants to play some battlefront at 1080p but his computer currently rocks integrated graphics. He’s looking for a budget GPU to add to his system. I believe it has an intel I3 4170 at 3.7 GHz. He doesn’t need anything fancy, just a budget GPU to give him something playable. I attached a photo of his system

Those all require a new power supply

dont be bounded by game requirements when buying a GPU.

Sure your friend will try out other games in future.

I suggest used rx580/590/ gtx1060 6gb as greatest return at 1080p gaming.

or new gtx1660/ti which would be solid for another 5 yrs

 

anyway you will need a new psu

It's a prebuilt so PSU is probably 200W 

 

750Ti would be the wisest choice


ASUS X470-PRO • R7 1700 4GHz • Corsair H110i GT P/P • 2x MSI RX 480 8G • Corsair DP 2x8 @3466 • EVGA 750 G2 • Corsair 730T • Crucial MX500 250GB • WD 4TB
