Upgrade or not upgrade is the question


Recommended Posts

Happy New Year

I have the following specification Who feels weak even for light games for children (Roblox, Minecraft, etc.):

Gigabyte GA-H110M-S2PV -CF (GPU: HD 530 (Desktop Skylake

CPU: Intel i3-6100

Sandisk PLUS 240GB 240GB (OS)

HDD2: ST31000333AS 1TB

RAM: 1600 2x4GB

Should you upgrade parts or go ahead and replace a processor and board as well?

If so what to upgrade and why? Probably need a reasonable video card as well

Ready to invest about 1200 NIS in total

It is probably not possible to replace a tablet + processor + memories + video card with the budget you set.

Start with a video card this is your main limitation, it is the most problematic part with the market situation today but you will find a used card in the 500 that will allow you to play reasonably.

Regarding the processor, check if you can find a processor with 4 cores that will fit the board you have, which i5 7500 or 6600

Thanks Okay let's start with a video card - which card (all relative) is the most lucrative for me?

At the moment in the new ones you have nothing to look for because, in the used ones it all depends on what you find. 1060 will be fine, there is someone here on the site who sells 970 cheap. Almost anything will be a significant upgrade from the built-in card you have today.

As for the 2nd hand processor I will try to find something maybe I6500?

Will do the job, you might even find a 6700 or 7700. If you find someone who sells a processor + board + memory as a package this is also an option.

Have you increased RAM Does 16G have anything?

I do not think it will be very significant, you would consider messing with it only after you have upgraded the other things.
