Hey all!

I have a 7ish year old PC and I'm getting to that point where my PC CANT play new games. :O( (Anthem and The Division 2)

I usually play my games a low settings because I like FPS more then graphics.

So, either I buy a whole new PC (1500ish$) or just a new graphics card.

How can I tell what graphics card i should buy? If it's too strong my old PC might not make the most out of it. If it's not strong enough then I just waste money.

(how do I post my PC stats to help the smarter people? haha thanks!!!!)

I saw this graphics card for cheap and it got me thinking.

at 7 years, I'd not even be considering just a new card.
either go hard core and get a new rig or put up with the ol' gal a bit longer.
it certainly doesn't owe you anything and can always be kept for those older games where grunt isn't so important.

go on - you know you deserve it. ;)
