My GPU needs to be replaced

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I Inherited my fathers computer from like 2015 or so and the graphics card stopped working. It is a XFX 290A. I know its a old graphics card but it worked amazing for me to this day. I play all low specs game on max settings and had no issues. So overwatch and LOL and many other non demanding games. I'm wondering if in now a days market if there is a card that could just replace it. No boost needed or extras really. Just something similar. I tried to find just the identical card but did not find any. Just looking for some guidance here.
