Do you really need a brand new Graphics Card?

Published by Atif Liaqat on

Well, if you think that your PC is fast enough to provide you the best of both worlds, then you need to understand some important aspects before purchasing the graphics card. Even if you have the fastest graphics card in the market, providing data to run a specific resolution that heats your PC with a burden, there is only a minimum amount of improvement needed.

Of course, old CPUs will have to struggle with a lot of performance issues. Upgrading your CPU can also be the right decision, but an upgraded graphics card can be an ever right-er decision.

What will happen if you purchase a graphics card that offers you a performance rate slower than 20-30%? In that case, your CPU’s performance will not be under the spotlight.

Even if you have an 8G worth of memory and an i7-4770K core or a better one, you should be able to achieve the best amount of performance. However, it is not appropriate to purchase an i7-4770K core system these days, but it is still important to have a compatible CPU.

Still, you shouldn’t confuse VRAM capacity with your CPU. Most people find VRAM more important than a CPU; this can turn out to be a factor. So, a 4GB GPU won’t be able to handle games that actually require 4GB worth of VRAM, and other games that require more than 4GB VRAM will demand the EVGA GTX 1660 Ti XC Black. The average VRAM capacity you will be okay with is 4 – 8GB.

Furthermore, all the graphics cards that we have reviewed either contain 4 or 8GB VRAM, which is more than enough to receive high quality and maximum resolution for gaming.
