Son, it's time to upgrade.

Go get 16GB of RAM at least & Geforce GTX 1060 3GB

16gb of RAM but only the 3gb 1060???

8gb of ram is certainly sufficient at the moment, it'd be better to get the higher vram version than pointlessly get 16gb ram.

I'm wondering how your PC still runs at all.

You should check your CPU performance and RAM usage during play to see where the bottleneck is.

I tried a test run with 3D Mark Professional, and... it crashed. I tried to run the highest setting avalible and it ran at 4fps. Yeah, this setup has finally gotten old. It lasted me so many years...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

4GB of RAM? Dude, that definitely needs updating. My laptop is crap for games yet still has 8GB of RAM.



that thing was outdated when you got it.
gtx 750 is and was a budget gpu that costed like 100$
the i3 isnt too bad but still budget cpu from like 2013

upgrade ram then work on gpu if possible

So I was trying to play Doom 4 on my PC on medium settings, and the game runs at, at most, 20 fps. I've been wondering if my PC has become underpowered with the current market. Specially when I see games like RE7 needing for its minimum settings more than what I already have.

Do you think this setup is okay, or is it somewhat dated? Or do you think my framerate problem with Doom has nothing to do with it?

RAM 4gb

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750

RAM is definitely the easiest fix there, doesn't cost much. Otherwise I imagine you should be able to run Doom on medium just fine once you get more RAM.

Make sure to check whether your mobo is DDR3 or DDR4 compatible (I imagine yours is DDR3) before you buy your RAM though... When I did my recent upgrade I totally forgot and couldn't swap my RAM into my new mobo.

Son, time to scrap that piece and craft yourself a new one.

 

Trust me, you'll be better fof with a new build in the longrun that simply replacinga piece or two for now.

That I3 is perfectly good these days, at least for now. Add 4GB of ram, a faster GPU (that 1060 3gb is a good idea), and boom, done. The above just suggests wasting money for no reason.

Yes, it's considerably underpowered now. The GTX 750 is closer to minimun on most games, so it will make you have to play on low/medium in a bunch of cases. Also, you need more RAM, at least 8GB to have some room to breath. The CPU still can go a bit, unless you buy a new, more powerful, GPU.

Agree. 3GB is too low, there is a bunch og games that even on 1080p go closer to 4GB of usage. That 3GB version was a dumb reaction to the RX480 price, but it lacks VRAM severely.



Ha, I'm still running an Nvidia 660Ti!
I can still easily play Skyrim and Bioshock, etc. but when it comes to these latest gen games, i'd probably only be able to play at low settings. I've been looking to upgrade both my RAM and video card as well since it's been 4ish years since my rig was built.

Let me (or us) know what you end up upgrading with of you do.
