OK Gfx card for this box?

Postby morganm » Fri Oct 12, 2012 7:21 am

Here's my specs:  http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/10153 ... Rsp3.shtml

Looking for a PCIe gfx card (that has shader model 3!!!) that would compliment that box well.  Budget? Well... I'm a cheap SOB but I know you get what you pay for so...  no more than $200?  I'm not looking to build some badass gamer box here... I just want to play DayZ at an OK quality level with good FPS.

Please advise, thanks!

After over thinking this and over analyzing it...  

I'm going with the Radeon HD 7750.  For $100 it seems like an acceptable card for my 4 year old PC.  

Have to get a PSU with it too but that's OK.  

Thanks for all your fucking help NERDS!   :lol:

I have a Radeon HD 5870 from December 2009.
Many asses have been kicked.

That pick should be great, assuming it even runs on that machine.

I was a little worried given I have a PCIe v1.0 slot and this is a PCIe v3.0 card but from what I've read it should still work... just not at full speed.

We'll find out very soon!  I picked it up today =^.^=

Guess I never followed up on this... but nobody cares anyway =)  

Everything works fine; the card was retro-compatible with my crappy old PCIe slot.  
Even worked with my PSU... but I upgraded it anyway.  

DayZ runs great =^.^=

And for that, Tzan, you are probably the most dearly beloved member of the forum.
