Hi there.

I am after a GPU that can play these games but have no idea what to look for - plus the GPU used market looks a bit of a mess at the moment.

What are the cheapest GPUs I could get to play these games on lowish settings?

Btw - I have a 350W PSU, which probably doesn't help things (though it is a SuperFlower Golden Green).

Thanks very much.
 
Solution
Have a look into a 1050TI. You should be able to find a relativley decent one for cheap and should also have enough headroom with a 350W PSU (depending on the rest of your components)

Perfect thanks very much for that.

I thought I would just add my other specs (just in case it is a problem).

I currently have a B85M-E45 motherboard with a G1850, 4 sticks of DDR3 RAM, 3 SSDs, 1 HDD and a case fan.

I was hoping to swap the lowly G1850 for Xeon E3 v3 - that should still be OK, shouldn't it?

I have just been looking at Ebay for the 1050TI and they seem to have a value of around £80.00 (about $110). Out of interest what was the value of one of these cards before all this fiasco with the inflated GPU prices?

I have never had a need for a GPU until now but I remember seeing used but decent cards for considerably less as soon as they became a few years old.

Personally I wouldn't bother with the Xenon. They're more for servers rather than gaming. If it were me I'd save up for an i7 4790 and maybe up the PSU to a 500W. The used market at the moment is a dumpster fire however you just need to keep looking until you find the right seller.

I am unsure. I try to stay out of the used market myself.
