I am building my first pc, and it's more of a test than a real pc I will game on. Here are the specs I am looking to put together.
Lenovo M91p Motherboard
NVIDIA GT 1030

From Craigslist (don't have yet, I don't know if this is trustworthy)

Intel Core i5-2500 (already have)
500 GB SSD: https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Powe...ld=1&keywords=500gb+ssd&qid=1597184538&sr=8-5 (on its way)
How much fps do you think it can run each of these at?
Valorant
CS:GO
Fortnite
Warzone
I am still considering about the gt 1030 though, I don't know if that seller is going to scam me or not, he says the price is 65$ is the plastic wrap real, is the price at all reasonable?

that my friend is the 64 million dollar question.
simply - you won't know until you know.
all i can guess is it will be on the low side rather than high, purely based on the process and motherboard.
other factors come into play as well; memory, web speed.
improving FPS is the Holy Grail of gaming - many have tried, many have spent big dollars - many have been disappointed.

the GT1030 is an older gen card, new they sell for around $120 (www.umart.com.au) so $65 is very cheap.
judging by all the parts on the floor in his shot, he must be into flogging off PC bit and pieces.
as to trustworthiness - i cannot say.

okay thank you, I'm still sus about this dude, but all I know is that he sells this 20$ cheaper than amazon, I really do think it could be possible if he changed his mind last minute, but that is very unlikely. I will say that it is possible this is 3rd handed and he bought it from someone for even cheaper
