Needing a cheap upgrade

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just bought the rig in my sig for $75 off Craigslist and im excited to get back into pc gaming, actually i bought 2 of these from the guy for $75 each. They both are the exact same thing, great deal aye? The xfire 4670's are actually pretty decent considering their age, ive just ran Rage and Metro 2033 medium settings and getting 25-35 fps at 1366x768 resolution. BL2 on max settings gets around 25-35 also.

Id like to get as much eye candy as i can without breaking my little piggy bank... I'm just a security guard. Also if possible wouldnt want to upgrade my 550W psu either. It does have 1 modular 6 pin pci-e plug, so i guess i could run a card that requires 2 6 pins and use 2 molex to 6 pin adapter for the other.

Ive been out the pc game for about 4 years and have no idea whats what, help me out guys?

budget...? What you bought is pretty old... don`t really understand why you got two of them?! For like 100$ you could get a 7850 maybe a 7950? That's the only worthy upgrade I see as the whole system should be upgraded lol. Can't say it was a good deal honestly. What you bought is worthless.

I have around a $120 budget.

Well i figured $150 for the pair wasnt a bad deal considering the cpu alone still goes for about $50. I've already set one to good use as the wifes computer, she did have a slow P4 machine. This was a cheap way for me to get back into gaming.

I don`t know how capable that cpu is.... maybe check if the board can be overclocked that would allow you to put a better GPU on it. For 120$ you could get a 7950 if not a 7970. I would just grab the cheapest GPU possible as I am not so sure the cpu will be able to handle it.

Edit: see this
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/353557-33-anyone-q9650-newer-card

What I would do is just get something like 7850 and a SSD. For 125$ you can do it (if you get used SSD with like just enough for the OS and some game).

Yeah i know it's old but im sure it'll be fine with a gpu upgrade. This is actually the best pc ive had ever... Sad yeah...

My last one had a E7600 cpu with a GTS-250 gpu and 4Gb of ram, maybe 5 years ago.

get an used R9 380 4GB or wait for the new cards if you can,

I would look for an Nvidia card rather than an AMD one. Considering your CPU, you're going to need the less driver overhead from Nvidia. 750 Ti is decent if you can get a deal on it. I'd say like $60-70 tops for one of those.
