I need some advice

Postby T/Sgt.Fromage » Sun Jan 08, 2017 6:43 am

My graphics card died recently (which is why I've been away recently). I need some guidance as to what I could get to replace it. I previously had a Zotac NVidia geforce GT 730 2GB card. I have a budget of around £150 (I think that's around $185 American). What should I get?

I would look into the new GTX 1050 series, they run between 110-165$, if you look at the benchmarks though they are very solid cards, and are probably better than that 730


here is a link you can look at the card and compare it to other cards and look at what fps it gets in certain games

also ignore that 1,000 price, that's for them to build a whole computer with it

I would shop on newegg.com, and also recommend you go with the 4GB card instead of the 2GB, which is a little underpowered imo

Yeah, I saw the EVGA 1050 ti on Amazon for £165 which isn't too much over budget. Might as well get that.

That 15 extra dollars Or so is definitely worth the upgrade to the 1050ti over the 1050

I had a look at AMD, but I'm going with NVidia
