Need PC assistance
Hello guys,
I have an AMD A10-7850K (3,70ghz) with Radeon 7 graphics.
1. Is it possible to change the graphics card only?
2. If yes, what graphics card would be ok to reach atleast 200fps (constant), only if possible?
Please be serious.

GPU wont really give you a boost in fps. (for csgo, it will however increase fps for such games as GTA)
What you need is a good intel cpu, with better single core performance.

phuck :(
2017-01-11 14:48:31
what's your fps with that cpu?
2017-01-11 14:49:51
I am currently playing on 800x600 all low and I have 150-160 fps
2017-01-11 14:50:28
well, 150-160 isnt bad tho, but as I said, a new gpu sadly wont increase the fps that much, only by a small margin. Save up money so that you can upgrade both:) But mostly cpu, if csgo is the only thing you play.
2017-01-11 14:52:02
i would say the 7850k should be enough to get 200fps.
i had a i7-930 @2.8ghz and got 160fps, after overclocking i could about 180fps @3.6ghz and that cpu was really old.
2017-01-11 14:52:31
Comparing an old intel CPU with still decent IPC vs an AMD APU with shit IPC...You don't know shit about PC's do u m9?
2017-01-11 14:55:50
dont say a shitstorm. I have A8-5600k 3.60ghz and after change to GTX 760 i got +70fps boost (i mean on map with players, not empty).
2017-01-11 15:07:44
Bullshit, gpu will increase frames, but not like 50x
2017-01-11 15:34:22
ye, ofc it will give a boost, but what's the point of him buying a 250dollar gpu to get a 20-30fps increase bahaha.

Have you ever even upgraded a pc by yourself?
2017-01-11 15:35:31
Um...yes, my 1060 added about 50-100 fps
2017-01-11 21:43:17
radeon 7 doesnt really tells us much, what exactly graphic card do you have?
2017-01-11 14:49:35
#12
2017-01-11 14:56:31
1. yes,
2. i have a gtx1060 and i get 200fps+ at 1080p but it depends on your settings. normally i would say that a gtx1050 or RX470 is enough.
maybe a bit of overclocking of cpu is needed.
but what your current gpu exactly now.

buy a dedicated graphics card like gtx 1050 Ti / 1060 depending on your budget
2017-01-11 14:58:15
it's around 160-180€?
2017-01-11 15:00:59
1050 Ti or add a little more to your budget like ~30ish€ and go for a gtx 1060 3gb
2017-01-11 15:09:01
Thank you
2017-01-11 15:10:01
no. its stupid if you have 160-180euro budget i would change this cpu and GPU + mobo.
it doesnt have any sense if you buy some gtx 1050 ti for this CPU, even gtx 750 ti will be a little much

It's confusing not to know :/
2017-01-11 15:11:42
u want used components? or new only? electronic is vital, you can even buy a CPU which was used for a 3-4 years.
2017-01-11 15:13:30
I don't know what to say. Is it safe to buy used ones?
2017-01-11 15:14:22
Yes it is. If you won't buy a some shit from china. And better with guarantee
2017-01-11 15:15:14
Alright. What would be the best thing to do right now? Change both, change the gpu, change the cpu?
2017-01-11 15:16:53
Both. This cpu is average, even whatever card you would have it will be lagging
If you give 20$ more you can buy a used i5 2500(for 100$ which can run all games on high settings without lags. ofc with respectable card) used gtx 750 ti 2gb 70$ and some MOBO with 1155 socket
in this budget its the best option. I dont see better

Well, thank you for taking time to explain ;). I'll see if I can find something. Thanks again, I appreciate it
2017-01-11 15:29:34
and man be careful with your PSU. If you have some shit from ''black list'' you should replace it with something with a PSU with reputation. There is no joke with PSU
but its not a big expense (10-20$ for some used 400W Chieftec, Tacens Radic, corsair etc.)
if u want know more why i said this u can read about this on google

Thank you again!
2017-01-11 15:58:49
i don't see how you will get much better performance buying a new cpu+gpu. for 180 and get a big preformance boost.
you would have to spend 150-200 at least to get a better cpu preformance.
2017-01-11 15:29:28
I dont know what is your problem, but for his CPU gtx 1050 ti/ rx 470 or something its a overkill.. His cpu will be a huge bottleneck, for me better to buy a used i5 2500 + some gtx 750 ti etc.
2017-01-11 15:32:13
i5 2500 is not that much better than a a10-7850k, i would not invest 100,- for upgrade to a i5-2500. i agree gtx1050 is overkill for cs go. but i would still prefer a gtx1050 over a 750 with the a10, for games with low cpu loads and high gpu loads. i had a gtx1060 with a i7-930 @3.7ghz, for a wile and i had still gpu bottle necks sometimes.
2017-01-11 15:46:25
i didn't say that gtx 1050 is overkill for CS:GO but for all his PC. even i3 2100+ has better performance than his APU.. its stupid to spend all his money on these cards.. Especially when he can buy a nice i5 + some gtx 750 ti / hd 7870 . For me its better than put some giant cards to this shit APU
2017-01-11 15:57:46
+ yes.. with his CPU 1050 ti / rx 470 or something maybe will take 50% of their power :D
2017-01-11 16:02:38
hmm, there should be 3 more number behind the R7, like Radeon R7 250, for dedicated videocards.
could it be that you use the integrated graphics of your cpu, since it had a radeon R7 videochip?
2017-01-11 15:05:18
I went to my control panel on it's properties and it sais: AMD Radeon (TM) R7 Graphics; nothing more, nothing less
2017-01-11 15:09:29
yeah i would say than you are using the integrated graphics of your cpu, it doesn't really matter though for upgrading you can just add a gpu in a pci slot and it will work just fine.
2017-01-11 15:13:34
Thanks for answering
2017-01-11 15:17:24
You can replace your gpu, yes.

You can also replace your cpu.

They are not hard to replace, in fact, it's way easier than most people think.
2017-01-11 15:00:42
Thanks :)
2017-01-11 15:17:55
try restart your pc
2017-01-11 15:18:48
Lol hahaha, if that would help me I would restart my pc 10 times a day
2017-01-11 15:22:43
Look on back of your Computer and see if there is a dedicated GPU and if there Is not then you should buy one, not only that it would rise your fps but it would also let you play on higher resolutions with good fps
2017-01-11 15:26:02

2017-01-11 15:37:07
you don't have a dedicated gpu.
2017-01-11 15:47:18
Thank you
2017-01-11 15:49:01
nice zalman case btw :() I used to have one of those and they were pretty good for such cheap ones.
2017-01-11 16:13:25
For your Price point i would higly recomend the GTX 1050ti cuz it has 4gb So it plays other games too and its the newest Technology what NVIDIA Is offering. And go with NVIDIA rather than AMD GPU :)
2017-01-11 16:29:03
Thanks
2017-01-11 16:42:17
1. Yes. You can't "change" your graphics card since it's integrated into your CPU, you can only turn it off and use a new standalone (aka discrete) graphics card instead. Make sure your motherboard has a PCI Express 16x slot and your PSU is at least 400 watts.

2. Depends on what settings you want to play on. 1920x1080 200 fps requires more power than 1024x768 fps. In order of best option to worst:
1. Nvidia GTX 1060
2. Nvidia GTX 970
3. AMD RX 480
4. AMD RX 470
5. Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti

Tell me your motherboard model and power supply.
2017-01-11 15:42:05
Manifacturer: ASUSTek COMPUTER INC.
Model: A68HM-Plus
2017-01-11 15:55:07
Do you know your power supply model?
2017-01-11 17:22:35
I don't know where to look. It's embarassing
2017-01-11 17:23:25
open your case and give PSU screenshot

This is my psu and my motherboard
2017-01-11 17:44:34
i-Tec so its no-name psu from China, and even here is not written max W on 12V, if you change your CPU, mobo,gpu i would reccomend you any 400W PSU but only from respected marks (Chieftec, Tacens Radic, Corsair, xfx, ocz) and see the most on 12V line cuz it supplies your GPU and CPU
2017-01-11 17:55:32
I'll keep that in mind, thank you for your huge help man!
2017-01-11 17:56:22
np. the biggest problem of your PSU is that it doesn't have basic security before tension, etc. if it would have too much tension your PSU will dead and it can take your components ram, gpu, cpu but it depends on your luck :)
2017-01-11 18:00:26
okay but why you need his motherboard? All cards will work .
2017-01-11 16:05:42
to make sure it has a pci-e x16 lane dumbo :()
2017-01-11 16:11:00
lmao
is there any mobo which don't have PCI Express? hahaha
2017-01-11 16:11:53
Some small form factor or slimline prebuilt pcs from hp or such :()

bye :)
2017-01-11 16:08:07
1. Yes, u can change graphics card
2. buy GTX950 and u get 200fps
2017-01-11 16:16:37
I have GTX 760 and i get 200-290 stable so try that should be cheap enough.
