    Graphic card question..


    Which would be better.. my current AMD A10-6600K GPU or an EVGA GeForce GT 740 ??
    Here are the requirements I have:
    1 Medium gaming
    2 The ability later on to use a higher resolution monitor.

    And being able to free up the memory used by the on board GPU would be nice.

    Thoughts??

    No personal experience, but a little Googling will suggest that the GT 740 is significantly better than the A10-6600K's graphics core.

    The 740 may require a larger PSU, but the 450W one in your specs should be more than adequate.

    I don't have any first hand experience either, but I would tend to agree with bobkn. I would think most decent discreet video cards would result in better performance in gaming. Especially if you get the GDDR5 version. Here are the specs on it http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desk...specifications

    Thanks.. I was thinking that it would be an improvement but I just wanted to verify my thinking on this.

    You can get a GTX 750, but it will be bottleneck like 10% with your configuration. AMD CPU are not my taste at all, I prefer Intel instead but that just my opinion.

    My long term plan is to move over to an Intel based system. But for now I just want to start with the graphic card,, new case and next year I can get a copy of Win10 Home,,, and the other parts.

    What is your power supply wattage? GTX 750 is a low end graphics card that doesn't consume much power as any other cards, but it can play 1080P games on medium settings. Also, it's cheaper to get as well.

    It's 450w right now. I hope to get a new case and a 700w power supply later on.

    Enough juice to power this low end GTX 750. GeForce GTX 750 | Specifications | GeForce

    The reference model required 300W PSU.
