    Default Budget GPU Recommnedation Required - Under USD100 & Without External Power

    Hi All,


    I want to buy a new GPU. I have I5-3470, integrated graphics (Intel HD 2500), 4 GB RAM and basic PSU. USD100 is the max I can spend now, lower is also fine. Want to be able to play mainly recent strategy and sports games (may be in low config??)

    GTX750 TI is above my budget, May be GT730/HD7750?

    Would appreciate if you can help to pick a suitable GPU for me.

    For strategy and and sports games, I believe an HD7750 would be enough...

    You have an extremely powerful CPU, pairing it with $100 GPU would be such a big mismatch. GT 730 (2gb 64-bit) or R7 250 (rebrand of HD 7750) does perform better on paper, but in real life gaming the difference may not be that much. If you are not already happy with the way you play games with your on board graphics, you may not happy with these cards either. And these cards may even fail to run games like Shadow of Mordor or Watch Dogs with r7 250 (at the lowest resolution and lowest detail level) properly, that experience is not worth it. Not only that there is no guarantee if your basic PSU will be able to support even these low level cards. You might have to buy a high quality PSU. And after a year you may not be able to play new games on these cards any more.

    You should buy at least R9 270, to do justice to your i5. Save up more money or buy a used one. I highly suggest that you don't settle for anything below GTX 750 TI or R7 260X both 2 GB versions. Trust me brother going that cheap will cost you more.
