Nvidia graphics card

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am after a Nvdia Geforce graphics card as an upgrade on my dad's fairly new pc. He does a bit of light gaming and at the moment his card, well sucks.

He needs one which is either 9 series or better and nothing over £60.

Here is the link with all the specs of his current pc. LINK

It's very small inside and rather bare and i'm not even sure if a big card would fit.

Anyway, any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Never mind.

I wouldn't mind getting a reference gtx 660 Ti for a i7 2600 or maybe one of those smaller zotac amp edition 660 ti's.

if he doesn't need that much horsepwer then a HD7770 would be the best option imo. they are amd cards though. if you want to stick with nvidia maybe a gtx 460/560 maybe a TI even

He plays a bit of MW2 which runs fine on medium settings but trying to play silent hunter 5 is impossible even on the lowest settings which is the reason for the upgrade.

I have been looking at either a GT620 or the HD6570, both around £40-50.

Can anyone recommend these cards or know of a better card for the same price?

Neither of those cards are really meant for gaming. Try to find a 6850 for that price used?

I put a GTX430 in my folks PC and they do some light gaming just fine on it. Only RTS style games.

Like i said, it won't be used for much gaming. Maybe play MW2 on slightly higher settings and at least be able to play SH5 without the terrible fps.

On the site it says minimum game requirements then states that anything over the 9 series or HD3000 is recommended.

GT 630 - £45. Looks promising. The 640 is a little too much.

amd cards are generally faster in the entry level. an HD5670 I believe would outperform them both and they're cheaper afaik
