Compatible graphics card?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello I am buying a refurbished dell t3500 from discount computers and I was wondering if anyone could help me find a compatible gpu that I could use for games like beamng drive, cs:go and gta5. I was wondering if someone could help me find a gpu that could play those games with a bit of breathing room for more advanced games. I don’t know if I can but I’m trying to find a gpu that can do all that and be under $300. If that’s not possible than I’m hoping to find a gpu under $300 that can at least play beamng drive on lowest settings. I’m hoping to spend around $100-$250 but I’ll max out at $300. The computer will have 24gb of ram and the cpu will be an Intel Xeon Dual Core W3503 2.4Ghz CPU. I was also wondering what cpu’s I can upgrade to because I don’t know if this computer will support amd Ryzen 5 or even an intel i5 because I couldn’t find what motherboard it has. The first link I have is for the computer I will be buying and the second is the gpu I think might work. Computer:  https://www.discountelectronics.com/dell-precision-t3500-t-w7p-computer/ Gpu that might work: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127907

 Thank you so much for any help and sorry for the font change.

the board only supports LGA 1366 CPUs, you can upgrade it with a 6-core at the most. What's your budget for everything? $325 for that isn't a good deal imo.

That computer is lga 1366, obviously modern CPU support is out of the question. If you are on a budget you should also skip the unnecessary 24 gigs of ram. I would invest in a different platform and get a used i5 2400, a P67 motherboard 8GB of ram and GTX 950 or 760. The GT 730 is absolutely terrible and is a senseless product to buy. The dual core xeon is also a really slow CPU.

Well .. besides it being expensive look at the discount?

I'm surprised nobody mentioned it but they are just straight up lying :D

You aren't saving if the old price indicated by $ 225 is now $ 325 ... in what fucked up upside down universe are we saving money here xD

 

As per graphics cards, a 1050Ti will be okay but not great.

I'd do as the others say and grab a Ryzen with a cheap motherboard and case, 8GB of RAM on eBay (Cheaper then new) some whitelabel HDD at last a 1050Ti or 1060 if possible. That'd suit your needs better.

That Dell is quite old and the store where you are buying it is using the oldest tricks in the book making both of them dinosaurs :P

Changed a part.

Preferred Current SSD Suggestion for a combined Price/Performance Dynamic in USA: SSD Benchmark Link -> Here <-

Preferred Thermal Compound suggestion in ... the Terran Biosphere: Review Link -> Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut

 

Should solve this recent double post trend. But editing and re-editing posts is just so... ... ... eh.
