Sorry for the poor one handed shaky recording lol. Heres links to what I used, if anyone wants the same setup or is just interested in running retro 3d and modern games ect. Will work with first gen sf and mk cabs.

Mod kit with all the parts needed.

Pc for emulation. Will run killer instinct and ki 2, Blitz, tekken 3. All arcade versions. Pick 8gbs of ram before checkout.

Gt 1030 graphics card. Needed to play mk11 tekken 7 sf iv and sf V ect.

GIGABYTE GeForce GT 1030...

Video I used for tutorial

With this pc you dont need the power button in the video if you use big box as your front end or have it boot into steam or big box at start up. You can just select turn off system with the joystick and buttons.

Their might be cheaper ways. But this is what I used for the basics. I also attached a sound bar I had laying around and cup holders from amazon. I can link those as well if anyone's interested.

Lastly mk11 is running on steam. I use this site to get steam games for a fraction of the regular price.

You can get GT 1030 and GTX 1050 at retail prices right now. The leap is at 1050 Ti.

I would say use the GeForce GT 1030 2gb, because I just recently got it, and it plays games very very good. Amazon link:

u/IncultusMagica · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

This pc itself is pretty low end and old. the Core 2 Duo line up was current up through 2008. Most video cards over 70 dollars will be a lost value as this thing's cpu will bottlekneck them. The power supply in this unit is sure to not be more than 300W and you will only be able to put low profile video cards in the case.


With that said, you would be looking at low profile video cards that don't require external power. Something like the 1030 if you are looking to buy new only.

u/martindm03 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

This is a Pentium 4 running @ 2.8 GHz, which is a single core CPU on the lga 775 socket. You could get a core 2 quad q6600, they are usually anywhere from $8-$15, which is a quad core cpu on the lga 775 socket @ 2.4 GHz, and with the 4 cores vs 1, it will signinficantly increase performance. Another upgrade of course would be more RAM, most likely with the older platform it will be DDR2 memory, possibly even DDR. A cheap graphics card as well, will really give you some better peformance as it appears this computer doesn't even have one. I recommend a GT 1030 which is a great little card for only $70, and will be perfect for streaming video, and will even play some games as well. Lastly, reformat and get a fresh install of windows on there after the upgrades, as since your little brother has been using it (I'm assuming he's a pretty young kid) there will probably be a ton of malware on there from general internet use, which will always effect your performance.

u/spyingwind · 3 pointsr/Proxmox

1030 would fit the bill. I have one for my server and a more powerful card for a guest.

u/Just_A_Gay_Toaster · 2 pointsr/pchelp

A gt 1030 would work well. Here is one on amazon. If you looking for one somewhere else then make sure you get the gddr5 version.

u/twotwelvedegrees · 2 pointsr/SSBM

Basically what I was saying last night, for like $80 you could get like a GTX 1030 that would be 30 times more powerful and that’s the bottom of the line today haha

edit: you know, playable
edit 2: I remembered this video which is pretty funny, your graphics card is two generations newer than this one but probably still like 9 behind current

u/the__storm · 2 pointsr/sffpc

The smallest GPU available is the integrated one in an Intel CPU or a Raven Ridge APU (AMD 2200g/2400g).

Outside of that, there are MXM cards (requires special motherboard) and single slot low profile ITX cards like this 1030. (There are also lots of older and cheaper cards in this form factor, like my Sapphire 7750.) Neither of these fits in the Chopin, at least not without significant mods.

u/ToTimesTwoisToo · 2 pointsr/suggestapc

video editing is mostly a cpu-heavy task, even built-in intel hd 4000 graphics should be good enough. But you could always add one of these guys

should be compatible without needing to upgrade the psu or anything.

u/psimwork · 2 pointsr/buildapc

A GTX 750 Ti should do the job, but you might actually find a Low-profile 1050 Ti cheaper (unless you go used).

For reference, The Sims 4 recommends a GTX 650 for good performance. As you can see in this graph a GT 710 won't hold a candle to a GTX 650.

That said, a GT 1030 will do the job and is cheaper than either the 1050 Ti or a 750 Ti. Just make sure you get the GDDR5 version and not the DDR4 version (I linked the GDDR5 version).

I didn't check the qvl list of the mobo because I just picked one that should work fine without a bios update at a price point another could match.

This is obviously under budget and you could improve things you wanted... but I would say clarify your changes if you thought going prebuilt was a better option.

This is the 80 dollar graphics card in the other commentators suggestion... getting it still has you under budget from his "cheap" prebuilt which I assume doesn't include tax? (which isn't needed for this build because the processor is an APU that has fantastic integrated graphics)

I will assume someone will say get a bigger power supply... but you don't need it. Minimum for a 1060 6gb is still 400 so this should be good to just upgrade to a decent gpu when your friend has money.

Also someone might say the dell has windows, but this is at least 60 or likely more dollars cheaper (even if you do add a 1030 and sub in a 1600) that you can put toward windows later if you want it... or just not. I have made 4 pcs that use the unactivated (not illegal!) win 10 pro.

random comparison video GT 1030 (G4560) vs Vega 11 (Ryzen 5 2400G) Comparison in 12 Games GPU vs APU Or google... there are tons. It is important to note the RAM speed. I parted out 3000mhz, which should be good to go. Also there are fps discrepancies due to the resolution differences in some videos. FPS is increased extremely when on 900p or similar which works on some games.

Building this gets you a could good CPU that acts as a playable GPU, saves money from the total build budget, and allows the computer to be used NOW and then save for a real GPU in a much shorter time.

u/ZeroPaladn · 2 pointsr/buildapc

The link I sent shows boards marked with (25W) on the motherboard right beside the PCIe slot. If it doesn't, it's probably the full 75W.

A low-profile 1030 for ya.

u/cf18 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

See page 20. The card will only work in the x16 slot. I fear that the thick heatsink of that GT 1030 may be blocked by the CPU heatsink.

May be getting this instead. It is smaller but the fan will make some noise.

Also note you monitor need DVI or HDMI. VGA monitor will require an active adapter.

u/yee245 · 2 pointsr/buildapc and

GT 1030s have been creeping up in price. I figure it's the pricing settling back to non-holiday-pricing, slightly due to memory prices, and mining generally pulling all graphics card pricing upward. I still vaguely remember a few months ago when you could find them brand new in the $60s.

u/doingwhatican · 1 pointr/buildapc

What's the difference between the 1030 you linked me and this one?

u/UltimaGabe · 1 pointr/buildapc

Here's the GPU, and I'm not 100% what PSU I'm using but as far as I can tell my computer is this one here. I bought it refurbished on Craigslist so it could be slightly different specs, but I'm not sure how to check what PSU is actually in there. I posted about upgrading the video card a couple weeks ago and some people in the thread there pointed out that the PSU might not be powerful enough. What do you think?

u/b4da__ · 1 pointr/buildapc




Will putting this SSD and GPU into that computer be a problem? Is it inefficient?

u/DashThePunk · 1 pointr/buildapc

This should work.

GT 1030 on Amazon.

u/morchel2k · 1 pointr/buildapc
they even have a warehousedeal for 61$.

u/Komaiko54 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Awesome I'll try to cipher this when I get a card. will something like this: be gucci or not?

u/chang-e_bunny · 1 pointr/buildapc

Updated topic post with the ones I'm looking into now. This looks like the best option right now:

> You want a gpu without the extra 6 or 8 pin connector.

eli5; I'm trying to find what it is I'm keeping an eye out for it not to have. XD

u/MeMeMasterEdgeLord · 1 pointr/buildapc

Thanks, I will further my research into this graphics cards. Is this a good option for a new graphics card meaning "will this fit my pc case". Is the card that I linked goo enough to run overwatch at full fps and high settings.

u/x_Leftz · 1 pointr/pchelp

would this Be the right graphics card?

u/a38c16c5293d690d686b · 1 pointr/lowspecgamer

For the SFF models you'll need a low profile, single slot card like this one, that's why our options are limited.

u/arcademe · 1 pointr/pcgaming
u/fstmstngs · 1 pointr/PleX

They have to be low profile like:

GIGABYTE GeForce GT 1030 GV-N1030D5-2GL Low Profile 2G Computer Graphics Card

Fits in the x16 slot and I can keep my WiFi card in the X4 slot.


Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050 OC Low Profile 2GB GDDR5 128 Bit PCI-E Graphic Card (GV-N1050OC-2GL)

Because it’s a dual slot card, I’d have to do away with my WiFi card and plug the GPU into the x4 slot as there’s not enough room fit in the x16 slot. The SFF Dell has the the x4 above the x16 slot and the x16 slot is right above the PSU. A dual slot card physically won’t fit where the x16 slot is located.

u/Dinierto · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I haven't built a PC in 10 years. Looking to get a low profile GPU for an optiplex, but I'm not sure about how HDMI works on modern cards. Does this card output audio over hdmi, and how can I find out the answer to this in the future?

u/IncendiumAddict · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm actually already using the 8200 Elite, but I'm real dumb when it comes to hardware, so I want to make sure I get the right thing here.

Will this work for my purposes?

u/sodj1 · 1 pointr/buildapc
u/jerrie86 · 1 pointr/buildapc

GIGABYTE GeForce GT 1030 GV-N1030D5-2GL Low Profile 2G Computer Graphics Card

Still 10 bucks over 60.

u/dweller_12 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

That CPU will bottleneck the GPU very badly. Just pick up one of these. No need for adapters or anything, it fits inside.

u/RageMuffin69 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Thank you! So I'm not good with understanding requirements for PC components but I'm assuming for a GPU the only thing that I would need is for it to be PCIE x16 compatible and whatever recommended PSU wattage. Is that correct? I've been looking around for any video card that matches those 2 criteria and there's actually a ton of options ranging from 50$ to 200$ even when looking at the ones under 100$.


For example there's this Gigabyte GT 1030 and this ASUS GT 710. The major difference I see in the Gigabyte card is that it supports overclocking and has a bit higher memory speed. So if I don't care about overclocking then the ASUS card would be better for me correct? Also would a 4gb DDR3 card be better than a 2gb DDR5? I'm not sure how much better DDR3/4/5 are compared to the amount of memory in the card being 1, 2, or 4 gb.


Should I keep my focus more on the card being a DDR5 and having good memory speed? Apologies for so many questions.

u/Khaotic_Kernel · 1 pointr/Ubuntu

Hi, u/NEVERxxEVER there are some fixes for your issues but they maybe temporary. I would say to save you future trouble and time definitely consider investing in the GT 1030.

u/Kmccb · 1 pointr/htpc

Thanks for the reply..

Cheapest one I see is this one here..

Which one did you get? Are you playing 4K (streaming or downloaded)?

u/TimberMeadow · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

Doesn't get much cheaper than this:

GT 710 - $35 new, $30 used

GT 1030 - $72 new

u/Mando_dablord · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

Two Passive cooling 1030's: ($70) ($80)

Two blower style 1030's: ($84.5) ($90)

A 570: ($130)

And a 1050 ti: ($160, $150 w/ rebate)

Hopefully this showed you the different cards that can go with the builds. Unless you're on a tight budget than the integrated graphics will do good for basic things.

Maybe you can get something like a 550 or 650, but they're so old it might be tough to get them. Plus they might not even work well because of how old they are now...
