Suggest me a GPU and a CPU for Rs.50,000 please
« on: March 29, 2018, 03:59:14 pm »
Hello! I got Rs.50,000 with me. I currently have a GTX 750Ti 2GB, and Core i3 3210, and an 8GB RAM. My motherboard is Intel DH61HO. I am looking forward to upgrade my PC, as in where I can play FarCry 5 with decent graphics at least. Thought of upgrading my GPU and CPU. Please suggest me what are the options available. And, would it be necessary to upgrade my motherboard too?

If you are looking for used parts, get yourself a 3rd gen i5 and something like a GTX 970. You might need a PSU upgrade to go along with it.

You should get 50+ FPS at max settings with that config. Even if you just upgrade the graphics card without the processor, you'll still get almost the same performance.

If I am to get that 970, do I not need a CPU upgrade? Would my 3rd gen i3 be sufficient? Also, I got a 450W PSU. That's fine I guess?
And, do you trust that Super PC Technologies on ikman.lk? Thanks for the reply btw.

You can always get the GPU upgrade first, and gauge your experience.

Just gave you a few examples. Trust at your own risk.
