    Windows 10 32 Bit

    Replacement for my nvidia GT 610 - what would you suggest.


    My PC is very modest - but I believe that the fitted nvidia GT610 graphics card restricts performance somewhat.

    I use windows 10 32 bit (Vers 1703 os build 15063.540) - have 4 Gb ram - Gigabyte H61M-S2PV M/B -
    Intel Core i3 2130 processor.

    Your thoughts and recommendations for a new/used card (preferably nVidia) would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    For a mid range, the GTX 1060 is an excellent choice. Of course brand specific is a personal choice.

    I agree, my GTX 1060 is good enough to keep FPS around 60 in the games I play. (mainly the Witcher series and GTA5 with a few shooters mingled in.)

    Thanks guys for your input.... really the GTX 1060 is way out of my league - I should have mentioned that I am not a game player, and no way would I shell out that sort of dosh for a card.
    More modest ideas welcomed.
    Thanks again

    I would also back the 1060 suggestion

    I am slightly confused by your system specs, you say you have a desktop machine but your case is a laptop??

    You would be looking to GT 1030 Graphics Card the power requirements are roughly the same as your current one, 30 w or so.
    Brings you forward by 2 generations. Possibly GT 710/720 but does not bring you much further forward.

    Using 32 bit Windows and 4 GB RAM restricts your performance to an extent.

    Hello again

    Swarfega
    sorry about the system confusion - my enquiry really centres around my desktop PC as indicated in my post.
    I have 3 laptops + 2 desktop PC's, and would be reluctant to list them all. Obviously the laptop shown was from a previous post.

    Thanks for the suggestion - will take a close look at this. Might also consider some additional memory (another 4Gb perhaps)

    Good idea that, more memory I mean. Might help enough that you won't need a new gpu ........ possibly.

    You can list up to two computers on your profile on this forum. A lot of us do this including me.

    If the 1060 is out of the question; then the next closest GPU would be the 1050. The price range is from $114 to $209. This also includes some of the 1050 Ti's.
