What GPU for a LGA775 Mobo?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an old CPU that would like to play around as a personal project, I'd love to get a recycled GPU for it but not sure what to choose for it.
The idea is to upgrade, while trying to recycle old cards.

The machine:
It is Foxconn G31MX-K Mobo w/ Pentium Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00 GHz.
It has 2 GBs DDR2 @ 667.
Lastly (don't know if important), 1 x PCIe x16. 1 x PCIe x1. 2 x PCI.

What are your recommendations?

Cheapest stuff from the used market would do, I'd personally go with a GTX 750 ti at most because they're fairly inexpensive and draw very little power. Makes a neat cheapo 1080p card.



I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B
