I have 500w PSU. Card is good, but still holds it price in my country 100 euros. And my motherboard is max 4gb RAM. For about 250 euro i could buy used PC with some better motherboard and CPU but probably not so good GPU! So what do you suggest, to buy cheaper card than these GTX 750 (100eur) or maybe to buy newer used PC for 250eur...My budget is low, so any good sugestion about cheaper but good graph card i would appreciate?
 
u can go with a gt 730...but its not going to give u anything than lowest settings...that too it will bleed with newer games...google for some benchmarks and then make the decision urself...but 730 is the lowest u can go...there aint anything worth a dime under that...

I just upgraded from a GT630 to a GTX750ti and for the price u can't go wrong... Completely changed my PC can play BF4 on high settings with ease... Although I did upgrade my PSU cuz my old one was only 300w I'm sure of its is only 300w it would still be OK to run it... Another bonus is make sure u buy one that will work of only PCIE slot and doesn't need a 6 pin external power connector... The 750ti run very cool to so no need to upgrade stock cooling... I bought a low profile one so it fits easily in a standard HP case... Though only 4gb ram may be an issue u would need to check that first

Yes motherboard is a problem with max 4gb of RAM! And newer is 30-50 euros+. And what about my CPU. How much is it important for gaming?

Does ur PC have extra RAM slots if so u could buy another 4gb ram and install that to... Ur PC will run games with a new card though not very well but if ur limited with money and can't afford a new PC ur abit out of options... I would buy more ram and a 750ti if it's no good still then upgrade CPU as well then u should be sweet
 
ur motherboard has 4gb max capacity of ram...u cant expand that any more...

that dual core will definitely bottleneck the card but u will still get decent performance with the 750ti...the 750ti can go strong for another 3yrs atleast...later on when u get the opportunity, u can upgrade to a better board and cpu...and u can still use the 750ti for a gud performance...

 


The CPU is very important for gaming. What resolution is your monitor?

Resolution is 1920x1080. But i play games like GTA4, SkyrimV, PES16... in 1600x900 resolution becouse is little lagy on higher res. Good cpu is about 70-100 euros and to change CPU+Motherboard+GPU all costs +-250 euros.
I was looking performances of my gforce gt220 vs gforce gt 730 (http://www.game-debate.com/gpu/index.php?gid=886&gid2=209&compare=geforce-gt-730-vs-geforce-gt-220) and i dont see drastic diference. Any other card beetwen gt 730 and gtx 750?
 
Maybe the R7 250, if you can find one. It's performance is between the GT 730 and the GTX 750, but you'll have to see if you can still get one new and how much it costs. Or find a used card.

Sell your computer if you can actually get something for it and get a 2nd or 3rd gen i5 (old and cheap) or a 4th-6th gen i3 to start your next build, at least then you'll be able to enjoy the newer gen of GPU's like 480/470/460 or 1060/1050(ti?) that provide the most performance per dollar.

If you keep that old system, save a few more Euros and get the GTX 750 Ti. Here in the US you can buy one for $100. Should be able to find one for about €110 with a little careful shopping where you are.
At 1080p, anything less than a GTX 750 Ti will be a wastes of money.

Thank you all for help. Because is summer i will spend my money on other things! And later it will be definitely GTX 750 Ti, and if i buy new pc i will just put that graph in it! Thanks again!
 


You won't be happy if you want to game at 1080p using medium or better settings. And GPU Boss isn't the best for making comparisons. What does the GTX 750 Ti 2GB run in Euros where you are?

Man i know that, but only the money is problem. Here is 1euro=122rsd, and average pay in my country is 25.000rsd=210euro. So my budget is very problematic thing.


I was look ing in some motherboard that can have 8Gb DDR2 RAM and 775 socket processor like intel core 2 quad Q9650 (as i can see these is best CPU 775) these procesor used is about 50euros. All these i am doing just to bust my curent PC from 4gb Ram and graphic from gt220 to r7 250=100eur.
