Considering an upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): 120 Euros

Country: Latvia

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: E-sport games, gta v those kinda games.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc):  

I'm thinking of upgrading my computer's video card.

Above is my budget and i'm thinking of getting a somekinda 4gb card, any suggestions and additional help?

 

My computer's current spec:

CPU - I7 - 860

GPU - ATI Radeon HD 4650 - upgrading this.

RAM - 2x4gb (8gb) not sure what ddr.

PSU - 240V power supply if i'm not mistaking, says don't exceed 320v on it.

Based on your processor, your RAM should be DDR3.

 


When the son of the deposed king of Nigeria emails you directly, asking for help, you help! His father ran the freaking country! Ok?

Is this a good option? (It's brand new)

 

Some people told me that sapphire cards aren't that good, that they overheat n stuff.

My psu dosen't have a cable for this gpu socket.

 

 

I need a video card without that socket. a video card that you can just plug in it's slot and that's it.

Its fairly difficult to find decent graphics cards that dont need power from the psu. It would probably be recommended to either buy adapters or just buy a psu with pcie power connectors and a higher power wattage, 500w - 550w is the most commonly used with a graphics card

I'm gonna buy a PowerColor RX 570 4GB

 

And a PSU - Xilence ATX2.3 PSU 500W XN052 and it has a PCIe 6+2 pin
