GPU Advice for a single monitor Game Paly

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have a friend with a Dual core 3 Ghz and his son wants to play :


Just cause 3
Assassin’s creed
No man’s sky
Far cry primal
The division
Call of duty black ops 3
Subnautica
Rocket league

Will the cpu do ? But more importantly what GPU would be needed to get decent game play ?

At what resolution 1080p? I think that dual core will hold him back, he need an i5 at least.

As for gpu go for gtx 970 and up or get a used amd 290

if that dual core is a g3258 max a r9 280x

Most likely if it's a 3GHz processor, it could be a E8400. If so, it'll be bottlenecking any recent GPU. I would get something like a 7950 used with a setup like that if your power supply can handle it of course.

Asking on this forum will be a bad idea. :-) People will explain how that chip does not work and how you need to spend more money and then tell you how you need a $300 video card minimum or you are being lame.

Sounds to me like your buddy is trying to build a decent system for his son to enjoy some games on, not to win a benchmark competition.

If the kid is okay with lowering the detail levels to around medium a 360 will deliver a solid gaming experience at 1080. He can kick it up a notch to a 370 and if he wants higher detail a 380. Anything past a 380 is really about pushing 1080 on a 144Hz monitor, so if he has a 60Hz monitor the gains would not be worth the cost to the game experience.

Then my suggestion of getting a 100$ GPU is pretty much on the spot wink.gif He could however go down to a 7790/260X though if he can grab one for 50-60$.

GTX 950 or GTX 960.

Avoid AMD gpu's. Their drivers are CPU heavy and would not work well with a dual core.

If after getting the 950/960 there are issues then might need a better CPU.

Well some fan boy had to supply disinformation I guess or it would not be an OCN post rolleyes.gif

Then why is that 280 getting out performed by a 760 and 750 ti on a i3 but not a i7. It should perform as well as, or better then the 760 and smash the 750 ti. It's enough to scare me away from mixing AMD gpu's and weak CPU's.




I suggest watching the video. I never recommend AMD gpu's with weak cpu's.


*I have owned 3 AMD gpu's (HD7770, 7850, 270x) since getting into computer building. I haven't had issues with them. However, I never attempted to pair them with a dual core cpu.
