Current GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS
I researched that it's very old and obsolete by today's standards. I was hoping I could get some advice on purchasing a new one I could use for gaming.
Two games I'm particularly interested in are Monster Hunter World / Ice borne and Monster Hunter Rise. (Recommended GPU NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 for both. I can purchase this one but I would like to hear your thoughts first on other possible options)
What I'm looking for:
  • Can stably run (triple A) games at 1080p / 30 fps, at least normal / mid graphics settings. Can run 60 fps if the games allow it. I have an i7 870 @ 2.93Ghz (8CPUs) processor and 12 GB of RAM if you need to know.
  • budget < $500 (AUD), has good value for price.

1650 is the best choice so far

If u list more of your pc specifications we can give better and more directed advice for you, but i do think a GTX 1650 is a fine budget low end option for all systems. Make sure your power supply can handle the new GPU and that your power supply isn't too old (if it is older then 10 years i would replace it, even when it is a good power supply)
