Hello, I was looking to upgrade some components on an assembled computer that I bought about a year ago mainly for casual gaming.
The current specs are as follows:
CPU: AMD A10-6700 (4 CPUs ~ 3.7GHZ)
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 8670D
MOBO: K30BF_M32BF_A_F_K31BF (FM2+ )
CASE: ASUS M32BF
Any other relivant specs, feel free to ask.
I'm basically a novice when it comes to computers but figured an upgrade was definitely needed.
GPU seems like the natural place to start but I recently learned that certain GPUs will only work with certain MOBOs.
What would be the best GPU to upgrade to with my given specs?
The supposed minimum system requirements for the game that I mostly play:
CPU: Intel CoreDuo E6 series OR Athlon64 X2 6400+
RAM: 2 GB
GPU: GeForce9600GT 512 MB OR AMD Radeon HD 4830 512 MB
DRIVE: 6 GB of free space
OS: Windows XP, Vista, 7
I'm playing on all low settings and 800x600 resolution to barely hit 60 fps at times.
I apologize for being a novice and thank you in advance!
