What do i need to add or swap to make my PC run GTAV on low 60fps or max payne 3 on high etc

I have found an old computer I used to use and its heavily outdated now, I was wondering what I can do to make it run the games in the title; or games around that graphics scale.

I don't have much money and need it to be cheap and effective, my price range can add up to £180 all together maybe a little more and that's it, i know its not much to go on but that's all I got.

im asking you guys as I don't want to buy something that wont work in my system; thanks :) (specs below are from dxdiag)

  1. I'm sorry bud but 180 isn't going to cut it. Especially if you want to run at high settings. You're better off saving your money and building your own computer rather than upgrading the one you have now.

    i asked this same question on steam someone suggested me to buy a GTX 750Ti, is this a good idea or worth a shot, im just sceptical on if my computer can handle/optimise it etc.
  3. You could probably get a gtx 960 in that pricerange. Only problem is cpu might bottleneck it a little bit, so getting a new cpu should be your next upgrade after the gpu
  4. You'd really need more ram too to run any new game.
  5. My mate is giving me 3gb of ram to add to what I have but I can only put 4gb in that should be enough

    4Gb will be just barely enough. But since the board uses DDR2, not much choice.

    Also, the Q8300 is actuall enough to run the GTA V on low settings.
    So adding an GTX750Ti would make you be able to run it at low settings.


    It probably won't run Max Payne 3 on high but Medium at least.
