I have 3 CPU's, please help me rank them by specs...

Just now, milesuy said:

Then would a GTX 1050Ti or a GTX 1650 work or will it also be a bottleneck?

These are 10-15 year old systems. All modern cards aside from maybe a 1030 or RX550 will be bottlenecked by any computer from that era.

I have 3 CPU's. Please rank them by specs and please recommend upgrades for GPU. I would like to reuse them, since I can't afford to build one yet.

Is GTX 1060 good enough or is it very bottlenecked? My friend wants to sell it to me at a very low price...
 

PC1:

  • Intel Pentium D 3.0GHz
  • 4GB RAM (2 x 2GB DDR2)
  • NVIDIA Geforce 8400 GS

PC2:

  • Intel Pentium E2160
  • 2GB RAM (2 x 1GB DDR2)
  • iGPU

PC3:

Definitely PC3 is the most capable, but any of these rigs will severely bottleneck a 1060.


My PC specs:

CPU: i5 2500 MB: Q65 RAM: 2x 4GB 1600 MHz DDR 3 GPU: GT 1030 2GB GDDR5 DISK: 480GB OCZ TR150

Which is better PC1 or PC2, in terms of CPU. I would move the 4GB RAM on the better system...

 

Would you recommend GTX 1060 on PC3? My friend offered his GTX 1060 at a very low price...

Just sell them all for like 75 dollars combined and get something way better like an optiplex with a 2500 or something

I am not even sure a modern card will work in them since they do not even have UEFI...

Well a dude on another forum had issues with his X58 platform refused to work with his brand new RX 5700XT... 😢

Probably needed to set it to pcie 1 or 2 

Not because of the legacy bios afaik

PC3:

  • Intel Core2Quad
  • 8GB RAM (4 x 2GB DDR2)
  • ATI Radeon 4770
  • NVIDIA GT 230 (Not plugged in)

These are 10-15 year old systems. All modern cards aside from maybe a 1030 or RX550 will be bottlenecked by any computer from that era. 

For PC3 it has 2 GPUs plugged in to the motherboard, but the PCIe power cable on the NVIDIA GT 230 is not plugged in. Would this cause any issues (ex: hang, lag, etc...)?

 

Is the ATI Radeon 4770 better than the NVIDIA GT 230?

Heck these are like 13-20 year old systems. I mean remember X58 and the first gen i7's came out late '08... Core 2 Quad is his newest cpu listed... so assuming it's not the absolute last of the core 2 quads... it's from '07 (13 years ago)

 

I actually think a GT 1030 might be too new for that.

I have 3 CPU's. Please rank them by specs and please recommend upgrades for GPU. I would like to reuse them, since I can't afford to build one yet.

Is GTX 1060 good enough or is it very bottlenecked? My friend wants to sell it to me at a very low price...

Those computers are all like 13-20 years old at this point... just try and sell them for like $50 each or something if you can... then I'd try and take the $150ish you get out of it, and your current gpu budget (assuming your friends offering it to for some absurdly low like $50) then that's a total of a $200 budget...

 

As for what todo with that $200ish budget just look at some of LTT's scrapyard wars series; or other channels like "Tech Yes City" or "Nerd on a budget" or something in that vein.

You don't need two GPU's. Remove the 230.

I don't have any place or a box to store the extra GPU, but I am currently finding it's original packaging / box.

Yes 

Anything is better than a 230 tbh at this point

You can use it for watching videos or folding but it doesn't have VP9 and it won't be any good for folding 

Either keep it and store it 

Sell it for dirt cheap or something

Yes its better. Just remove the 230 and put it in another rig. You don't need a box to store it in.
