    Okay, I am looking to buy a Dell Optiplex because they are cheap on eBay and they are easy to find. It has an i5-750 at 2.67 GHz, 4gb of ram (I am going to upgrade to 8 or 16gb), a Radeon HD 3450 and a 305w power supply ( I think). I am going to be using this computer for a BUDGET gaming computer! Yes I know this computer is old and yes I know I have limited options but I am a high school student with a low paying job and I need something for gaming, I know it will not run AAA games on high settings and I'm fine with that. The graphics card has to fit, has to run with the stock power supply (no 6 pin connector) the video card port is 75w, also the video card's drivers have to be compatible with the computers bios, software and Windows 10. Please have something around the 100 USD price point. Thanks!

    GTX 750ti is OK.
    If you looking at current gen, it will be GTX 1050ti or GTX 1050, which both over $100

    Yes I know I may get that in the future, along with a power supply. I ordered a 128 gig samsung SSD so I can load windows steam and some of my most played games on to it and have a fast SSD. When I do upgrade my power supply I will most likely be be going with a 500 watt to 600 watt power supply what graphics card do you recommend that will work with the bios windows 10 and fit. Thanks

    Thank you I will be looking into the Seasonic power supply so I have more room for upgrades. Do you know of a good graphics card to pair with this that will work with the power supply, bios and windows 10 it is okay if it is a little bottlenecked by the CPU because I plan to put an i7 in it when I find a good deal
