So, before I ask, please don’t judge me to harsh.
While I have been using computers for a few years, I still don’t know a lot about the inside of a computer and how it works.
So, my question is, if I want be able to play Tower Unite with higher settings and not lag at the same time, what do I need to upgrade on my computer? My graphics card, my processor, or both?
I’m sorry for my lack of computer knowledge.
Edition: Windows 10 Home
Processor: Intel® Core™ i3 CPU 550 @ 3.20GHz 3.20 GHz
Installed Ram: 8.00 GB (7.80 GB usable)
System Type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
Well, you gotta tell us your PC specs otherwise we can’t really help you here.
You can get Piriform Speccy and post a screenshot of the stats it shows you. (Speccy is a program that shows your PC specs.)
That CPU is really old in “terms of technology” and i3s were never the best. It would be better to upgrade it with an i5 or, if you can afford it, an i7.
Intel Graphics are the “worst” GPUs on the market, they’re integrated with their processors and are usually found on notebooks, especially ultrabooks. It would be better to buy an AMD or a NVIDIA. (NVIDIAs usually cost more than AMDs)
RAM is fine, 8 GB should suffice. (also depends on its speed)
At this point I’d suggest you to build a new PC or, if you can’t or don’t know how to do it/don’t want to, buy a pre-assembled one.
I have an i5 4460 and all the games I play run completely fine, I am still very far from the stage where I’d need an i7.
Honestly just get an i5 from the 4th or 6th generation, that one is enough to make your games run seamlessly.
In the long run? Probably.
I have an Hexa-Core and usually games work only on one core, which means my CPU is not working at its fullest potential.
Some other games, like games using the Frostbite Engine, use all of my cores which means that my CPU is going to outperform an i5 quad-core.
I’d look for an Intel Core i5 4th generation and a GeForce GTX 760 for an affordable setup that can take most games.
You can also look for an i7 5th/6th generation and a GTX 970 if you don’t have much of a budget limit and can get a powerful machine.
