I haven't kept up-to-speed on computer builds for quite a while, and I can really use some help. I upgraded my mobo, cpu and memory a couple years ago, but retained my old 9600 GSO video card. Recently, I downloaded a trial version of Fallout 4 (from Steam) and it would not run on my system........pretty sure the video card is not sufficient to allow the game to run.
So, I'd like to upgrade to something that will run games on my 27 inch monitor (2560 x 1440), but I don't need top-of-the-line performance. I plan to build a complete new rig sometime in the future (as soon as the chipmakers straighten out the Spectre and Meltdown problems), but until they do I will keep the current build and only upgrade the GPU.
Here is what I need:
- dual monitor support (currently run a 27 inch with a DVI connector, and a 24 inch with a VGA connector and a VGA-DVI adapter)
- ability to run games on the 27 inch monitor @ 2560 x 1440
- I don't really need really high framerates
- good low price
- no excessive power requirements
I sure can use the help.........all advice is appreciated. Thank you.
