    If you're in the market to buy a graphics card right now, you should probably wait. Graphics card prices are sky high right now because of the tariffs.

    GPUS are so expensive because of scalpers and silicon shortages

    yeah true. I was looking towards used and/or refurbished. tbh i need a new cpu first. My old pc broke so im using my backup with a Pentium G2030 dual core. It is super slow...

    Gt1030. Or a gt710. Works fine for beam on low medium.

    Op is running an amd a8, which is an Fm2+ socket, not an AM4, so he's going to have to buy a new motherboard, new ram since Fm2 is ddr3 and amr is ddr4, and the new cpu/apu. That's a bit too much if you have a tight budget.

    gt 730 bottlenecking begins i see, :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    nice!.
    im getting an i5 4460 3.2ghz soon, should be a decent rig, (4gb ram will do for now as im broke), and a slightly overclocked gt 710 (1ghz core speed, 2.9ghz mem speed)
    cant do much overclocking due to south indian temperatures (ambient temps are 30*C, gpu goes to 70-75*C)..


    i hope a quad core with 4 threads would be enough.. definitely wont be for multiplayer but meh.





    also, my gt710 is worth waaaaay more than i bought it for back in 2017 lmao, i could make a profit lol..

    Yeah it’ll work for BeamNG but in general those are both garbage graphics cards.

    Mid range 10 series cards are super good values now. A 1060 6gb or a 1070 are great 1080p cards.
