First of all, I never had a video card before because I did not play game. Recently I start to play Pro Evolution Soccer on my PC, however, I feel frustrated with the lag between I hit on the gamepad and the screen, I don't know if it is due to the fact that I do not have a video card. My CPU is intel i5 (purchased many years ago), I think it should have built-in graphics, isn't it enough for Pro Evolution Soccer? If I will probably only play this game, what is the most economic video card would you recommend?

here is the system reqs. for the game

https://www.pcgamebenchmark.com/pro-evolution-soccer-2019-system-requirements

you will need to have 8GB RAM and at least by today standards GTX 1050 ti

dont get lower card , is not worth it
Hi I have 8GB RAM running on Intel i5, but you can assume that I will not play
any other game, that is the only game I will play because I only like soccer.
Can I get a more economic card??

by the way do I need to look at the board to see if the slot is compatible when purchasing a card?

The requirements to run a game well are going to be the same whether it's the only game you play or one of a hundred games you play.

The best way to tell compatibility is, again, to provide all the specs for your PC. It's usually a power supply issue more than having the right slot -- the vast majority of most modern PCs will have PCIE slots -- but it's hard to say because you haven't told us anything about your PC other than "i5" and 8 GB of RAM.

And for things like the PSU, you'll physically have to open your PC and look at it. You need to, also; the PSU is almost always the most important factor when evaluating a new GPU.
what I know is
PSU = Antec 400w (forget the exact model, something like Neo Eco)
CPU = intel i5 (forget the frequency)
8GB RAM
256GB SSD
a DVD writer connected
no other hard drive connected

OK, what's your budget?

"i5" covers dozens of CPUs over a decade of greatly differing performance, so again, you're going to have to be more specific. Use Speccy. The minimum requirements list an i5-3470 and there are both much superior and much inferior i5 CPUs.
