    I would avoid the Mushkin Source and go with something else instead.

    The Mushkin Source is comparable to the Crucial BX500; DRAM-less SSDs with very low endurance.

    In this price range I recommend the $35 Team Group L5 Lite 3D; it's far superior to the Source.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/m.newegg.com/amp/products/N82E16820331048#ampf=undefined

    Also, 500GB SSDs drop into the $40 range quite frequently; something to consider.

    A cheap low profile 7570 or something would probably fit what you want, it sounds like the integrated gpu doesn't support the standard of the game.

    You can snag something for like twenty bucks in the GPU space that would be suitable.

    GT710 for £30 is too expensive

    GT730 is only £25 at CEX. But you do need to ring them to check if it is low profile. I think delivery is £1.50
    https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail...ame=computing&title=nvidia-geforce-gt-730-1gb

    Also, i do recommend you grab a decent 240GB SSD to boost a bit of performance. You can reuse it in future rig anyway.


    And finally, I have 2 x 1GB DDR2 800 lying around. If you want it, I can post it to you if you send me £2 to cover packaging and postage cost.

    Integrated graphics are better then the GT 710. That would be a waste of money.

    If all he wants is OpenGL support then no, it's not better than what he has.

    So you are claiming that a 710 is slower than the Intel GMA X4500HD from 2008?

    You're full of shit until you can prove otherwise.

    Oh, I thought you meant my list I suggested.

    Also, I am not sure a staff member should be saying **** to it's fellow users.

    Paid for and on its way.

    That would be great if I could grab that ram off you aswell.

    Thanks guys, when I have saved for a better system I'll definitely ask on here first.
