    Video Card Upgrade Advice Needed


    I'm looking to upgrade my Video Card from my current GTX 960 for use with a new 43" 4k TV that I am using as a monitor at 1440p. Full 4k makes everything way to small for my old eyes to see.

    What I need advice on, since it's obviously been awhile since I've purchased a new Video Card, is what card would work best for using a 4k TV as a monitor with some mild to medium gaming tossed in the mix. Most of the games I play are not very graphically demanding. Mostly RPG type stuff and a few first person shooters. Left 4 Dead, Portal, Star Trek Online, maybe some Civilization etc.

    I'm currently looking at the following; (the GeForce X60 cards have proven to be a nice sweet spot for me in the past)
    Radeon 5700 (XT)
    GTX 1660 (S)
    RTX 2060 (S), RTX 2070 (S)

    Obviously cheaper is better, but, I have up to a maximum budget of $500 to spend on a new card. I would also like to get a little bit of future proofing while I'm at it. I tend to do upgrades at 3 to 5 yr intervals, or as finances allow. I am on a fixed income so each upgrade needs to last as long as possible.

    Any advice for the best all around general usage card for my use case is appreciated. If there is another Video Card I should consider, by all means, throw it out there. The ones I listed are just the top recommended cards for my display size/resolution that I have been able to find online at the various review sites.

    TIA.

    System:
    Windows 10 x64 (Ver. 1903, Build 18362.959)
    FX 6300 (3.5Ghz)
    16GB DDR3 (1866)
    GeForce GTX 960 (2GB)
    Corsair RM750X

    :)

  2. Video card or RAM need upgrading?

    Memtest: no errors after 10 hrs.
    I'm going to perform the Primetest, later on. Get back to you on that.
    I'm going to take it step by step, guys. I need to find the problem with this current computer. I might have to upgrade some components, so that it is still runnable. As for the new one, yes....i will build on it later. I need to find something decent 'gaming experience', all suggestions appreciated. THanks.

    Need Some Graphic Card advice

    Personally, I'd strongly suggest you upgrade your psu to a decend 600-800 watt one and then get a GTX 9** series video card. One that has at least 4GBs of VRam is gonna be needed for any newer game.

  4. Video Card Upgrade Advice Needed

    Dual video card laptops and Windows 10 upgrade

    Hello,

    From the description I understand that system is not switching to the fasted video card which is Radeon 7600.

    I suggest you to uninstall the current video card from device manager and install Radeon 7600 manually and check if this helps.

    To uninstall from device manager follow these steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X key and click
      Device Manager.
    • Expand ‘Display Adapters’.
    • Right click on the video driver and click on
      uninstall
      .
    • Now install Radeon 7600 and check.

    Write us back with the status of the issue to assist you further.

    Thank You.
