    Question What Video Card would you reccommend?

    Wanting to get a dedicated gfx card for my current setup. Currently using the onboard on this current setup, which is about as good as my old GeForce 8600GT, but getting a bit old for today's stuff. Th

    Thinking of something like the GeForce 210. Not too expensive, and would give a nice boost I think. I'm mostly a casual gamer, but would like something that can run something like COD: Modern Warfare 2 or Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion better than my old GeForce 8600GT on my old QuadCore. Nothing too new, just a wee visual boost.

    Default Re: What Video Card would you reccommend?

    What is the actual onboard graphics and what resolution do you use on your monitor?
    This chart may be of use http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...rchy,4388.html
    or this article http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gpus,4380.html

    I'd expect the 210 to be a downgrade on pretty much everything, the lowest end graphics cards are no longer competitive with modern onboard graphics and I really don't see the point of them. I would not buy anything lesser than a GT 730 and as a gamer struggle to recommend even that. Personally I think gaming starts at around the GTX 750, R7 360 level. The games you mention are old though and will probably run on most cards.
