Hi, so im looking to upgrade my very old, factory made hp pavilion p6-2018 es.

 

What im looking for is a decent gpu arround the 150-250 euro(270 dollars aprox) to play fallout, arma etc. Nvidia preferably. Motherboard has pciE 2.0 x16.

 

I will also purchase power supply (no need for recomendation but would not mind).

 

Thank you for your time.

Underpowered GPU much? The r9 285 is MUCH better than the 750 Ti, and the 380 is just a rebadge

The compact version was out of stock. And read above, didn't know there was a compact 380.

Thanks, if I go amd, I will look at those.

you have no other choice friend - either a 750 Ti that performs literally half as good as a 380 or a 970 which costs near double.

PS: Get a new PSU - pre-builts have awful fire hazard PSUs

Why do you want to upgrade?

I think a 8 year old gt 530 can no longer handle 1980p 60 fps swag

The 750ti isn't beastly, it you want a GPU in that price range then get a 270 or 370.

I found this.

Thoughts/improvements, more bang for buck?

15% slower than a 380, bad customer support, mediocre cooler, noisy fans

your PSU cannot handle anything above a 750 Ti as is

I'm sorry, I didn't see that you wanted to game on it.

I guess your question has already been answered by now, but I highly recommend the GTX 950, R9 380 and GTX 960.
