    Default GPU Update

    My friend has a pc but it's graphics card was stolen when it was given to be fixed. Now she wants to buy a new graphics card. Her gaming demand is not that much. She only wants to play sims 3 and gta san andreas. What is the best graphics card which you guys would recommend. She has a core i3 and was wondering if an upgrade to an i5 would help. I told her that this is good enough if she wants to play these old games. What do you guys think? Please recommend a semi decent GPU which can play 2012 games maybe on medium settings for under 4000. Not looking for any second hand products though.

    At 4k you can get 5570 or 5670. .those will be more than enough for her. And as she has i3 setup so i am preety much sure that she can play gta and sims 3 without any problem

    gpu got stolen!!? Moger mulluk naki? How is that possible!?
    anyway on topic,
    is that i3 a 2nd gen or 1st gen? If it is a 2nd gen i3, I'd say don't buy ANY gpu within 4k (as you won't get 2nd hand).
    Cause that'll be a pure waste of money.

    Okay guys. Thanks for all your feedback. Not really a gamer as you can see from the kind of games she wants to play. Her gpu was stolen by an IT guy in her dad's office but her dad refuses to do anything about it. So yeah, pretty messed up story. Ar ki korar. Ami office e geye ar kichu bolte toh pari nah.
