Just wondering as I found one for £14 and want to replace my 512mb Nvidia geforce 9600gt . I will replace my whole PC when funds allow but I want to know if it is a decent card for light gaming. (My processor is an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 @3.0GHz)
How much better is it than my current card?
Thank you :)

EDIT: I just want to know if this card is fine for non demanding games and older titles so please don't tell me about other parts or advise I need an upgrade, I know I do but I am only 15 and can't get the money for a whole new computer. I have a ps4 for playing newer games :)

It's better, but it's still way behind what is currently available. This matters because modern games will be looking for more modern cards than the 5750. The IGP found in the Ryzen 3 2300G is likely faster than the 5750. I personally would look for something newer.

Like I said I will only be doing light gaming (old games as well as newer but non demanding titles). I cannot put anything better at the moment as I have an old lga775 mobo and so I need to upgrade my pc altogether, especially as I have a low quality psu which only delivers about 300w of power, and the HD 5750 doesn't consume lots of it.

i think that matched the vista machine i bought when vista first came out.

HOW is that thing still working.

something small and cheap i put together to get you into modern gaming. this is the minimum needed to come into modern gaming. might be able to cut about $60 off that if you find a brand you trust that is cheaper.

S/he said pounds, so UK based. Use uk partspicker. And if s/he's listing parts that cost 14 pounds, 300+ is probably out of reach.

You do make a good point. But s/he might be better off spending 100+ on a better used unit.

i think a modern used laptop that is in good shape would be an idea. good screen and can play those old games. and possibly cable to a modern tv also
