Can you help me with some simple upgrades?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, I would like to have some suggestions if you don't mind. So, this is the specs of my computer.

 

AMD a10 7860k

Gigabyte f2a68hm-s1

Corsair Vengeance ddr3 1333mhz

NVIDIA Geforce GT 730

 

I just want to improve my fps in Dota 2 even in low settings. Approximately, it has max of 80fps and it drops when clashing in the game. I didn't upgrade this since I am using Chrome and Dota 2 only. If it is possible, can it have some minor upgrades that is not that much? thanks

If all you care about is FPS in Dota 2, a GT 1030 is a great option for a graphics card and second hand they're way cheap (sometimes under 40 bucks) Just make sure you get the GDDR5 variant and not the DDR4 variant. Just keep in mind if there's many other games you want to play the 1030 isn't necessarily a beast. I'd really consider swapping out that GT 730, it's not a good card in all honesty.

150usd if possible.

RX570 or 580 (used) get the 8gb version if possible.

You'll be running dota at 1080p high settings 60FPS+ guaranteed.

Find a used RX 570 for under $100, you should be able to play high settings at 60 FPS easily.

Thank you so much, I just don't know about some bottleneck stuffs. So GT1030, I will try to find some used here in the philippines. Yeah GT730 is not good, it doesn't help at all honestly.

I'll definitely search it now. Thank you so much! I really don't want to get a new set or upgrade it max because I don't do much, I just work online and play dota 2. Should I upgrade my ram also? or that is fine?

Nooo... Don't get 1030, it's a rubbish card. As i said 570 or 580, it should be abundance even in Philippines.

You do have coin miners there right?

I was going to ask APU, should be overall better than his current system

 

but APU is beyond $200 i would think, for mobo cpu and ram

 

his CPU should be fine for DOTA...? not too familiar with the game but it should be fine, old game


Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I completely agree...the 1030 is a pile of horse manure. Heck, the igpu in a Ryzen 5 3400g performs about the same and is a much better value.

Okay noted, Yeah but so hard to find sellers. I'll search it and see how it goes. The miner card is the one without display ports?

No, i'm not refering a miner edition card spesifically. Don't get that, as they usually have only 1 output (or none).

I'm just saying when there's miners, you should get these cards for cheap, as mining is dead, so they will dump all their cards to the market.

RX cards are undervalued because of them.

Get either of these, RX470/480/570/580 or if you can't RX560.

1050ti is also good but the GTX used price is not that low.

Well it's your choice, RX570 can be as low as $80 in the used market.

Oh okay, now I understand. Most of the people here especially me will wait until our unit is dead in that way it is worth it haha. The 1050ti is always available here, does that work with my CPU? Sorry I have a lot of questions.

Well if you have the money for RX570, go for it.

I use to have 1050ti, i play at around 40-50 fps.

On RX580 i can get up to 60-80 fps, just to give you a picture.

Yes it will work with your CPU, all you need is replace the 730.

You may not get the most out of the GPU but it will be much better than having a  730.

Hmm thank you for that. Definitely I will search for the RX570 and if I purchase one, I will update you guys! I was shy posting here in the forum because I have low end pc. People here are friendly and helpful!
