If you want 1080p/60fps you will need a new cpu. You can upgrade to a Phenom 2 X4 945 for about $25, it's super cheap and would be a big boost from that athlon x2.

If you want the gtx 1050ti to reach it's true potential you'll need something like a Ryzen 3 1200 + a320/b350 mobo. Should be under $200.

The 1050 is a 720p card. It runs out of bandwidth at higher resolutions and performance tanks

every card tanks if you go high enough

You two really think the GPU is the issue when TC is using a piece of s*** dual core AMD CPU that's over 8 years old?

even tho i use my 1050 ti at 720P, i know it's still pretty capable at 1080p and definately can run a lot of games at 1080P at 60FPS if you have a good CPU.

the laptop 1050 ti is about the same as the desktop 1050 ti:

Whatever you do don't pick up 16gb of ram for that cpu. That would be a massive, massive waste of money for zero benefit and you won't be able to reuse it since it only supports ddr2. You'd be much better off putting that $150 towards pretty much any other cpu/mobo. Wait until Intel's new, lower end chipsets launch and get an i3 8100 or i5 8400, or even a Pentium Gold when they launch.

Another, even cheaper, option would be to pick up an old Sandy Bridge i5 workstation up off of eBay. You can get ones with a 2500 and a windows key for about $200. That's a bit dated by today's standards but it would be a night-and-day difference compared to what you have now, and still reasonably powerful.

You guys are awesome. This was incredibly helpful. I'm ordering a new (old)processer, and a SSD drive. I have windows 10 downloading, I'm holding off the memory for a bit. In case I need a real upgrade of CPU and Mobo. Thanks everyone.

AMD Phenom II X4 945 3GHz Quad-Core. Research I did I believe this a drop in upgrade.

SanDisk Ultra II 240GB SATA 6G/s 2.5" Solid State Drive.

Hopefully all this and windows 10 and my lowered expectations (720p@60). I should be fine for awhile. If not l will be shoping for a mobo+cp soon.

Wait, you bought an 8 years old CPU as an 'upgrade'? What the actual f***...?

I had one in a budget Rig I built 5 or 6 months ago with a I3 2100. I was running all kinds of newer games at 1080p at medium to high settings getting 60FPS or near it. The only game that hit it hard was the Witcher 3 at medium settings I was getting FPS in the 40s. THE CPU was getting eaten up pretty hard though.

Also Ark but that game is optimized for crap.
