Postby skyelar » Mon Oct 16, 2017 5:06 am

my budget is $50

some specs

Windows Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (build 2600)

Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.00GHz

Graphics Card: Intel(R) GMA 3000

Total RAM: 2.0 GB

Power Supply(crud i know):(OEM) HIPRO - Powersupply ATX 300W - HP-P3087F3

i looked inside my computer and it has a PCI-E X16 slot free.

Fallout 3 , new Vegas, TES 4 Oblivion and games from like 2009 and before.

** i play all games on the lowest possible settings i do not want to play anything in high detail! i just want to be ABLE to play these games above!***

Thanks

That is an extremely tight budget.


Your best bet would be to find an older-generation radeon, maybe something in the 48xx range. You might be able to snag a used one for that price.

Something like a 7750 or below (7570, 6670, etc) uses all of its power from the slot.

Also keep in mind that there are molex -> 6 pin PCIE converters that can facilitate cards that require extra power.
I'd certainly upgrade that PSU before getting anything more fiesty though.

In idea, certain, any card with a PCI-E connector ought to artwork with that motherboard. In prepare, there is particular playing cards that do not artwork with your board. verify the manufacturers website for information.
