Help needed :)

Post by Venom on 21/6/2014, 6:02 am

Heya ,

Soo to be short and sweet.

I have a PC at the moment which is perfectly fine, but I really want to be able to do more with it /record /stream.

And I think feel free to correct me that I need to get a graphic card, mine currently has one integrated within the processor which is fine for playing games, but really not much on top of it.
I have this motherboard : http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/A75M-HVS/?cat=FAQ

I'm looking for one not really much more than £50 ~ $85 , I don't want something amazing, just half decent.

The other specs on my computer are :
8gb Ram
60 Gb SSD 500gb HD
AMD A8-3850 APU with Radeon (HD) Graphics 2.89GHz

I honestly don't that much when it comes to the interior of my PC , soo if you think it's something else I need to change then please say, if not if you have any recommendations on graphics cards that will fit my pc, please let me know Smile

Gtx 750 Windforce would be a graphics card that can fit your budget. It also doesn't require any external power and can run from the pci slot on the motherboard Smile.

It looks awesome, but I can't find it anywhere that fits my budget, can you point me in the right direction?

750 seems pretty nice, I got a 760 and its great Very Happy It's very close to a 770 but was around 90 EUR cheaper (for me) than a 770 Very Happy

I meant Gigabyte Windforce GTX 750 Ti Razz, my bad it's a bit out of your budget I think

http://www.gigabyte.com.au/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4948#ov

But the MSI version of gtx 750 looks good as well Smile. I'm not sure where you would buy it though as I'm from Australia and the stores are probably different. You can also buy online at newegg I'm pretty sure Smile. The link you showed me looks good, that's the MSI brand of the gtx 750. If you have room in your budget your could upgrade to the Windforce GTX 750 Ti

Mixing AMD and Nvidia. Yuck.

The A series is alright - when you get the A10. If you don't get the A10, you should have just bought a straight processor. Allows for much more than an integrated.

But that's off topic.

OT, Buy an MSI R7 260X ($99 after rebate - comes with $100 in games too.. so basically free and you buy games.) 2GB DDR5 etc.

The computer is a few years old, and I only spent $350 on it at the time , I was young money wasn't exactly growing on trees Rolling Eyes .Not to mention I didn't understand the stuff that went into it, soo A-8 seemed good at the time.

Anyhow, is it bad to mix AMD and Nvidia, like will it affect my PC , I had a look at that graphics card, it looks quite nice, and a hella lot cheaper which caught my eye, as this is really only a put me on until I get a new pc :3

Hey again , I know you guys linked me and I've been fishing around based off those recommendations, however I really am limited by cash, and the one dualshock linked me is currently unavailable and elsewhere it's alot more , soo I've found a few, if you wouldn't mind giving opinions that'd be great Very Happy

I'm leaning towards this one at the moment : http://www.ebuyer.com/579365-sapphire-r7-250-2gb-ddr3-dual-dvi-hdmi-pci-e-graphics-card-11215-01-20g

This one would have to be vastly better to warrant buying it http://www.ebuyer.com/623625-asus-radeon-r7-250x-2gb-gddr5-dual-dvi-hdmi-displayport-pci-e-graphics-r7250x-2gd5

Or this one : http://www.ebuyer.com/581687-msi-r7-250-1gb-gddr5-dvi-hdmi-pci-e-graphics-card-r7-250-1gd5-oc

Please bear in mind my goal is not to be able to play epic games , I'm quite sad and play league, my aim is to be able to record/stream on half decent settings whilst maintaining 60 fps + .
