Windows 7: Best GPU for my games and budget?

Best GPU for my games and budget?

Hey all,

My current specs are in my system info.

The games I play are the Call of Duty series on steam, primarily black ops 1, 2, 3, and I'd like to play call of duty: world war 2 soon (just came out)

Black ops 1 and 2 are fine with my 670, but i have some fps drops on black ops 3, so I don't think i'll be that good on ww2, which was released this year.

I don't care about graphics, but i'd like a solid 60 fps with no drops. Higher would be nice :) I only would like to spend a max of $300, so i guess that's be my budget for a gpu. I'll worry about a new system later on.

Any help I would greatly appreciate!

Thank you :)

Getting a solid 60 FPS with $300 card could be a bit of a challenge.

Any 1060 should be around that price. And will be quite an improvement over your 670.

MSI GeForce GTX 1060 DirectX 12 GTX 1060 GAMING X 6G 6GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready ATX Video Card - Newegg.com

You could also put a 2600 in there, but like you said, you`ll build a new system. But I`m sure you could find one cheaper on Ebay. That would help your system too.

Hmm, the 2600 is a bit tempting after my gpu upgrade because if I build a new PC, i most likely won't have windows 7 as an option.

The gtx 1060 looks good too, thanks.

Do you think I should go for the 2600? I see used ones on eBay much cheaper than the one you linked.

You definitely should go for the i7 2600, it's only a bit slower than Kaby Lake's i7 7700.

So go for that before my gpu or should I do it after?

I'd go for the GPU first. The i5 2400 isn't that very slow compared to 7400

Agreed, get the GPU 1st, then if you spot a 2600 cheap, grab it. The Sandy Bridge is a great cpu.

The cpu I linked was just an example, I was shocked to see someone still had it new.

After you do that, then you could increase your memory to 16GB if the Motherboard will support 16GB. 12GB is a strange amount to be using.

If you do that, then you`d be good for a long time, and then you can start saving for a new build.

A new GPU, a bit faster CPU, and more memory will all help with your gaming. :)
