First off let me tell you about my situation.
I've been out of gaming for a while , and just recently got back into it after I got my pc gifted (you read it right) to me from my parents who decided to switch over to an iMac.
The PC is a few years old, but still holds some nice components I think. but please, correct me if I'm wrong.
Here are the specs:
OK so i'm wondering, is it a good idea to just change the graphics card and memory? Or is this system too old and would it be a better call to save up for a whole new pc?
i'm a student, my budget isnt that big yet so i'm really weighing the pros and cons.
In example, i should be able to play PAYDAY 2 with my current specs but i cant get it to work smoothly (lowest settings everything and latest drivers)
I know my graphics card is [bleep], and buying a new one would be better, but would I still be able to use this new graphics card for In example, an i7 system as a proper card?
In other words, would the latest graphics cards for current high end systems function in this sytem?
