Thanks dude. But are you sure about this? Will this setup work out? I have a Intel C2D E4400 for CPU. Is there possibly a chance where there may be a bottleneck?
if you are concerned about "bottleneck" then probably just don't install.
for me the purpose of adding a gpu to very old systems is to help game. Once a semblance of playability is achieved, I don't care whatever bottleneck happens anymore.
look, this is my Core 2 Quad pc. Board is probably as old as yours. I installed a GTX 1650 into it, and the games run fine. A bottleneck might be happening, sure. But my goal is simply to be able to play, and as you can see in the video.. the games are playable.
CPU-Z to show Q9500, GPU-Z to show the 1650, and HWMonitor to show that temps are normal.
- Street Fighter V - playable at 900p
- Xenon Racer - playable at 1080p. Sorry for my horrible driving skills. lol
my old pc has 4GB ddr3 ram and a core 2 quad. You have a core 2 duo, only 2 gb ram.. and a 730 is a lot weaker than a 1650. So probably, if you install a 730 into that old pc.. playstation 3 kind of games at 720p medium is the best that can be done, just an estimate.
