First time poster here so please be gentle. I would also appreciate plain talk that this 73 year old can understand. I am reasonably knowledgeable and my computer experience dates back to the 1960s when transistors came one at a time in little tin cans about 1/4" round and about 3/8" tall. lol I have had subsequent and ongoing experience but VERY knowledgeable I am not!
Anyway I am upgrading to WOW Legend and got a message that my AMD Radeon 6670 video card (which Radeon is no longer supporting) may not cut the mustard with it's DirectX 10 limitations.
I am running a Dell Xperion with an i7 4 core processor and 16 GB on board RAM and Windows 10. It is about four years old.
Other than some photography restoration and colorization WOW is the only thing I do that might tax the video card. So, like a foolish old man, I waded into the video card fray looking for a Radeon R7 260 or an nVidia 750 Ti. Both come with 2GB on RAM but I soon found out that both are 4 years old and already long in the tooth. These cards are the minimum recommended by Blizzard.
The newest and greatest video card is not what I need. There is also the problem of Social Security and a fixed income. Sigh . . . .
So, I am looking for suggestions in the $150 - $175 range that will meet my needs for now and possibly the next couple of years.
Your comments and thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Just remember you are addressing someone likely old enough to be your grandfather so keep is simple. LOL This should be fun.
