Hello and thanks for the advise in advance.

I received a Dell OptiPlex 790 I5 from work. The hard drive had been "wiped clean" so I bought and reinstalled Windows 7 pro 64 bit.

I would like to run Nascar 2003 as well as I racing on it .

I would appreciate any advise as I am a novice at computer build.

I need :

 

A good power supply.

A graphics card.

and some ram.

 

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks for the help.

 

Bob

Is this the Full Tower Optiplex or a slim model? Low power graphics cards like a GTX 1050 may be able to run without a new PSU.

How much ram do you need?

It is the MT not the slim or small form.

I would like to max out at 16 gig of ram at 4 gig per slot, but for now just a 4 gig stick.

I have to go look... but I think the power supply is like 240 watt.
