1050. The 1050 is the minimum for modern games. You can then upgrade the CPU to a Core 2 Quad for a few more FPS.

You would be better off upgrading CPU/motherboard/RAM at this point. After saving up for a year or so then upgrade the GPU. There really isn't anything better than the 5850 that really matches with that processor.

Yeah, a GT 1030 would be almost be a straight swap for your 5850, except for 1) it has an extra 1GB of VRAM, 2) it hardly uses any power, and 3) it'll definitely support the latest drivers.

A 1050 would be better, but it's also almost twice the price of the 1030.

All modern GPUs are PCIe 3.0, so you will likely just need to bite the bullet or stick with your current GPU.


PCIe. 3.0 uses the same number of pins and is backward compatible with PCI-E 2.0 and 1.0, it will just operate at the slower speed. How do I know? I'm using a PCI-E 3.0 card in a 2.0 slot. The thing is, even at 2.0, any GPU isn't going to be starved for bandwidth (whether it will be bottlenecked by TC's CPU is another matter).

Why are people even recommending someone upgrade the GPU in a 10 year old computer? What's the point? The 5850 is already about the best that computer can handle without a bottleneck. Upgrade the rest of the computer first and later on get another GPU. The 5850 should still play most games out, even if you have to lower settings a lot, especially if you're only using 720p resolution.
