  1. What? The gtx 580 can play anything at 1080p medium, are you sure you're plugged in to the graphics card and not the motherboard

    It's Not the 3gb Version, But Yeah I Agree with you I thought it would do better? I have 2 Gpu's Intel Graphics and The NVidia But yep Tried Playing forest and I couldn't even Handle the lag and extremely low Frame rates

    No worries, it's usually the first question to ask when someone's performance is really bad as it happens all the time :)

    With that power supply and cpu you can go as big as you like on the graphics card, the 1050ti isn't a massive upgrade from the 580. A decent upgrade, yes, but you could get an RX 480 or 6gb gtx 1060 quite easily
