No. It is my wife's grandma's computer I am upgrading. It will be used for playing card games and email. The computer in my sig still takes anything that I can throw at it.
If it just for Grandma to play cards and email, then you probably can do withour the video card and use the Intel on board video, use the extra from that for more memory or an i3 cpu... or possibly a new power supply
Thanks very much. Wasnt sure if the onboard video would be good enough. Have a brand new Corsair 550W power supply in basement. I will probably put into i3 CPU. Anyone in mind?
Just read this..."Furthermore, Microsoft is refusing to support anything less than Windows 10 on Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake processors, period."
So I am taking it I should get Windows 10 instead of 7 with that processer i listed above. And also this processor, not the one above. Intel Core i3-6100 3M 3.7 GHz LGA 1151 BX80662I36100 Desktop*
