Is VGA okay for gaming? and more questions inside


Best Answer The_Shadow_630 , 27 July 2016 - 11:51 AM

Yes, those parts should work together, and that card is probably going to perform a bit better than the first one that you posted, but not necessarily by alot.  If that is the budget you are t... Go to the full post »

Hello there! I am putting together parts for a PC Build. My first question is, the monitors that are in my budget all only have VGA, and my Graphics Card supports it but what I need to know is , Will it be ok? All I want is to play games at med-low settings without lag. I don't mind if it has lower quality and a bit low resolution but I do not want lag.My 2nd question is, My chosen motherboard supports the AMD A6-6400k. But this is from the online store AD640KOKHLBOX  and this is from the website AD640KOKA23HL. Will this processor still be compatible? My third question is The memory supported by this motherboard is DDR3 and the memory I chose is also DDR3 but its not in the supported memory list. Will it work?

 

Motherboard: http://www.ipmart.co...php?prod=406080

CPU: http://www.ipmart.co...php?prod=406280

RAM: http://www.ipmart.co...php?prod=451172

PSU: http://www.ipmart.co...php?prod=454269

GPU: http://www.ipmart.co...php?prod=417088

Display: http://www.ipmart.co...php?prod=495901

  

 

I listed the above so someone could help me check if those parts are compatible with each other and if they are better suggestions.

As far as compatibility of everything you listed, you are fine.  As far as gaming with VGA, it will not hurt, but you will get better clarity and range of display modes from other interfaces.  Looking at that parts list though, that is a fairly low end GPU to be running any modern games on.  If you are running on a shoestring budget then ok, but I can't imagine getting any particularly great performance out of that card running any newer games, even on lower settings.

Any online site in the US or Malaysia will work.. Even hong kong or India will work.

Well, I think we might need to talk about what your budget is for the build and start from there.  Could suggest all kinds of compatible and great cards, but in the end your budget for the project is going to be more of the deciding factor.

Well, my budget for a card is abt 80-90 USD. What you could probably help me with is go to ipmart.com.my and lazada.com.my and find me something that totals up to RM2600. If you cant ggetanything on these 2 find at newegg. I need a full setup from tower to display to controller and etc

 

-EDIT-

CPU: http://www.ipmart.co...php?prod=523644

GPU:http://www.ipmart.co...php?prod=465315

Motherboard: http://www.ipmart.co...php?prod=405833

WIll these work with each other?

Yes, those parts should work together, and that card is probably going to perform a bit better than the first one that you posted, but not necessarily by alot.  If that is the budget you are thinking then you might actually be on the upper end of what you can afford for now.  As you move forward, I would certainly start looking at upgrading that GPU as the next project, just to get more gaming performance out of the system.

Those two video cards are actually right on par with each other on many benchmark sites.  If anything the amd is a hair faster.  They are so close that either are about the same, they would be ok for a starter build and your budget.  I agree above, look into upgrading the video card as soon as you can next.

 

I wish you could find you a 750ti or something like that around your area (maybe used) or on ebay.  Your prices are a little higher on that site.  At newegg you can find a brand new 750ti video card starting at $99 and that card scores around 3685 passmark score vs the r7 and gt 730 which score around 930 - 950 on passmark.  The 750ti is the best bang for the buck and would only be $10 more and be 3.5 times faster card overall...

 

Try looking on ebay for a good used 750ti, I bet you can find one that someone has upgraded from for $35-$50..
