I want to game on a budget


maxresdefault

Gaming on a budget is something that is starting to interest console gamers. The technology used within the latest generation of consoles is around as powerful as a budget gaming computer. This section of the market is completely dominated by AMD, they offer some exceptional gaming graphics cards for very good prices. If you are gaming on a budget, it is generally safe to assume that the monitor being used is of 1920 x 1080p resolution, you play at medium settings and aim to spend under £100.

AMD R7 260x @ £94.99.

  • Core Clock: 1050MHz
  • Processing Core: 896
  • Memory: 2GB GDDR5
  • Memory Clock: 6000MHz (Effective)

The R7 260x is the lowest AMD graphics card I would recommend if you want to start gaming. At High quality pre-sets, this graphics card can churn out an average of 50FPS; so tweaking some of the settings could quite easily yield over 60FPS in many games.

NVIDIA GTX 750 @ £85.99.

  • Core Clock: 1059MHz
  • Core Boost Clock: 1137MHz
  • Processing/ CUDA Cores: 512
  • Memory: 1GB GDDR5
  • Memory Clock: 5000MHz (Effective)

Again, the GTX 750 is the lowest NVIDIA graphics card I would recommend for gaming. During our testing, it was able to produce an average of 50FPS; so with some graphical settings lowered, you could see 60FPS in most games.

What components would these work well with?

These graphics cards a relatively low power, so would work with most of the components you could readily buy today.

    You forgot about AMD Virtual Super Resolution. It’s Basically the same as NVIDIA DSR.

    What about APUS? 🙂 I mean A8 7600 for example, or some dualcores may do the work better than HD5450 🙂
