    Help me find a graphics card


    Hi!

    I'm looking for a decent graphics card so I can play some games.
    BUT! My PC is not so new and I'm not up to date on the latest cards.

    My PC is a custom AMD FM2+ DDR3 build:
    Mainboard: GIGABYTE F2A88XM-HD3P
    GA-F2A88XM-HD3P (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE Global

    Memory: Kingston FURYX 4GB x2 1866Mhz (kit)
    CPU: AMD A6-5400K Black Edition

    This build was originally meant for Windows 8.1 but also runs Windows 10 just fine. Drivers are available for both. I'm fine with either, but of course being up to date is always nice.

    So far I've been using the integrated graphics that comes with this CPU/APU.
    You can tell I'm not so much into gaming but yet I would now like to play a few games.

    I'm looking for support for Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) and Fortnite specifically. Maybe The Sims 3 and 4 too. Sims 3 plays just fine on the integrated APU graphics too.

    I know this rig is now old. I know I should better get a DDR4 build
    But I don't have the budget OR the desire just now. So I'd like a cool midrange graphics card that allows me to get the most out of this system.
    I know with todays card I will easy bottleneck this system but that's no problem
    I will eventually upgrading this PC and I will want to carry my shiny new card over. So please suggest something that would be sensible for a new midrange build too but until then would let me run these games.

    I prefer AMD but I'm fine with anything. I trust in cards with dual or more coolers but again, fine with anything.

    I plan to spend $200 max. Would appreciate less for sure but I don't want any entry basic level cards or any fanless low profile units. (unless it is really good, I leave it up to you)

    Besides not being DDR4 I think it's not a bad PC. I know the processor is an entry level but the RAM is quite there among DDR3 ones.

    And there are my gaming requirements. I think they are not that high. These games are not new, besides Fortnite this build was meant to run them with a decent card or maybe with a better processor


    Speaking of processor.. Can I keep it or is it absolutely a must to upgrade it right away? If so, does it make any sense in 2018 to get another FM2 (or FM2+) CPUs?

    :)

    graphics card problems

    Hi,

    Your computer makes a noise or beeps from your internal speaker because it failed to detect the graphics card. What we can suggest is for you to try cleaning your graphics card with a pencil eraser. Here are the steps below:

    • Turn your computer off.
    • Pull out your video/graphics card.
    • Rubbed the cold contacts with soft pencil eraser.
    • Connect your video/graphics card back to the computer.
    Kindly note that this is just a temporary fix. If the case still continues, I suggest that you contact your graphics card's manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.

    • Right click on the Graphic driver and select
