After posting about which graphics to go for, I finalized on getting a GT 1030 OC (I'm only buying this temporarily just to have fun gaming till I save up for a whole PC Upgrade)
My current specs are: i3 2100 + 6GB Ram

My question is that, would I be able to use this graphics card on my Gigabyte H61M-DS2?


Here's the link to the card: https://www.amazon.in/ASUS-PH-GT1030-O2G-GeForce-Phoenix-Graphics/dp/B071JV26GH/ref=asc_df_B071JV26GH/?tag=googleshopmob-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=397112739320&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=7320729759484881516&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9040240&hvtargid=pla-404914877482&psc=1&ext_vrnc=hi

Hey AntiSpater!
Did you chose your final decision? a GT 1030?

I thought you said you were getting a 1050 3gb.

Anyway, that card should be compatible.
I'm actually still in a dilemma the market prices are pretty high rn and for me to spend more than 150$+ on a temporary upgrade is something I'd need to think about, also that a friend of mine suggested to go for a 750TI if low on budget, but as it turns out 1030 OC works sorta similar to that
Anyways thanks for you help :))

See if you can find a better card, on the used market.
I'm not sure if I trust the used market, also that the service I'd be opting for wouldn't have pick and drop so if I am to buy a used one I'd be needing to visit the seller in personal which is something I'd like to avoid amidst Covid
Thanks for helping me out tho :)

You are very welcome! I would say the 750ti is actually better than the 1030. It is still a pretty hot card to this day, and can run modern titles. But a GTX 770 would also be a great option.

It turns out that none of those two are available right now and I'm not sure my PSU would be able to handle a 750TI because the Max Power of my PSU is: 300-310W, Thanks for the suggestion btw but is 1030 really that bad, like I've seen good benchmarks on which people were able to run 1080p LOW or 720p MED maybe
I'm really confused

Yes. I believe the 750 ti is not very energy efficient, and the reason you can’t find any of these cards is because nVidia discontinued all GTX 10 and 700 series cards. And I never said anywhere that the Gt 1030 is bad. It is good for upgrading an old PC,👌 and you might assume that I thought the 1030 was bad because it was better than the 750ti, but the 750ti can run plenty of modern games.

Alright man thank you so much!! I guess the fact that really determines the performance would the games I would play and how I'd use it :)

Also if you don't mind answering, I'm getting a pretty good deal on used 750TI, but would my 300W Max PSU be able to run it?

And by the way, the 750ti will outperform the 1050ti.

The 700 series is really good.
Lately I have been thinking of buying myself a GTX780Ti.
