Hi everyone I'm wondering if some of you kind folks may be able to give me some pointers on some upgrades in order to run game 3. I would like to be able to play it on launch and whilst I had been waiting for the system requirements to be published I'm thinking it might be a good idea to get some general advice ahead of time, especially with the current GPU climate. My machine is pretty damn old now (9yrs) and it was frankly a miracle that it ran game two especially since it doesn't even have a dedicated GPU. I've never done much more than change the hard drive in my PC so I'm finding it a bit of a minefiled.
I know I'm gonna need to get a new GPU, i am prepared for that to hurt. I have two questions essentially.
Am I likely to need to change the CPU or motherboard? what about other components. power supply?
So I have;
Processor: i7 3770K quad core processor which is 3.9Ghz out of the box,
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-7zzx-ud5h
Ram:16GB - should be ok here I think. Although it is old ram and 4 sticks of 4 which may not be the best.
Can I run a suitable GPU on such old hardware? and if so any tips on some to look out for? I don't need anything too fancy, just would like it to run in a stable way.
Am I SOOL and just need to build a whole new machine?
I know we concrete answers are hard without the sys req's but I'm hoping maybe some educated guesses based on game2 can be made. Any advice, guidance and pointers would be greatly appreciated.
