What other graphic card options would you have with this optiplex?
Nerd on a Budget (3 months ago)
I believe that's true, but I've also used an R9 290X in the optiplex with no issues https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=az__-asNpLc
Raine Nickels (3 months ago)
Was just wondering cause I heard the motherboard for this optiplex only dishes out 30 watts through the pci slot?
Nerd on a Budget (3 months ago)
Yeah either of those would work, but the single fan version. Dual fan will be too long
Raine Nickels (3 months ago)
Nerd on a Budget Yes I have a 500w psu. Just wondering if I get this exact optiplex would I be able to put a 1050 or 1050ti in it or no? Thanks for such a quick response
Nerd on a Budget (3 months ago)
RJV Farm - Gaming any of the short cards will fit in it (single fan), the blower style gtx 660 is pretty short and it was butting up against the hard drive cage. Keep in mind you'll also need to upgrade the stock optiplex power supply

Hello ,  I have problem with my i5 2400 .

GTX 660Ti with old AMD athlon 2 X4 640 OC @ 3.2GHZ runs it all some on max some on mid settings..Going to sell both soon with light upgrade to GTX 670 and X6 1090T..After all said and done may cost me 100 dollars to upgrade after I sell old parts on Ebay..Good for another 2 years after that...Just wish software would really keep up with using all CPU cores with good optimization..Wish full thinking for 90% of newer games and some productivity software as most suck at optimizing core use above 4 cores and some over 2 cores...
Nfs payback?
Reiden Lightman (10 months ago)
Moral of the story: 6 year old intel processor paired with 6 year old graphics card can run some of today’s games at 30-60fps on medium settings. If it hits 60fps, I don’t see it as much of a sacrifice for the potential savings for going with older parts. There are SOME games, though, that simply won’t run well on this config, and there will be more launching this year no doubt.

I also have an i5 2400 and 8gb of ddr3 1333mhz but my video card is a gigabyte single fan gtx 950 and i am pretty pleased with the performance i get from a system that cost less than 180$. I mean i can play star wars battlefront 2 at medium 1080p at a decent 60-70fps :)

ezekial Nul (10 months ago)
Hello N.O.A.B, I created this throwaway account to ask about your opinion. I was browsing Craigslist for something I could upgrade with the GTX 660 and I found the following: (1x) Dell Optiplex 990 Core i5-2400 3.10GHz 8GB Ram 500GB Desktop (1x) Dell 22" Monitor (1x) VGA cable (1x) Ethernet cable (2x) Power cords (1x) Windows 10 Pro OS Do you think this is a good deal for 229$? I was going to message the seller and ask if he would go to 150 possibly as to stay under my 250$ budget for my own PC or do you think that would be lowballing the seller?
ezekial Nul (10 months ago)
They said 200 is the least they can do.
Jarfankle _ (10 months ago)
ezekial Nul would be good to get at 170. Then you could afford a 770 or a 780 and that would be much more powerful than a 660.
Jonathan Santana (10 months ago)
BROOOOOO that first song!! awesome!! Great vid as always. I've been thinking of putting together a budget build for a casual gamer friend. Any suggestions for a gpu that can play any game out there @ 1080p and 60fps without dropping the settings down to much? I'm thinking a gtx 1060 6gb is the gpu to go with but I would love any suggestions.
Ren Clon (10 months ago)
why synthetic benchmarks? they don't tell you all what it is!!, gameplays with the avrg, low 1% at least pls
Ren Clon (9 months ago)
Nerd on a Budget okay then, keep it up, and thank you for the information
Nerd on a Budget (9 months ago)
+Ren Clon I do include it, I include both synthetics and real gameplay
Ren Clon (9 months ago)
Nerd on a Budget if you want to compare game performanc you need to switch your metrics to real gameplays with the avrg and % lows cuz it is about smoothness and gaming experience
Nerd on a Budget (10 months ago)
+Ren Clon synthetics are good for making direct comparisons to other systems, which is why I include some synthetics and some actual gameplay

Totally not spending 60 seconds per bench to get more ads
dougzon (10 months ago)
JJay__ Same. Content I'd good anyway and I pay nothing. Might as well watch the ads. Small favor.
JJay__ (10 months ago)
Nerd on a Budget I wouldn't mind watching ads for you :)
Nerd on a Budget (10 months ago)
+Brandon gill these extended benchmarks used to be 90 seconds per game but people said it was too long, this video isn't to get more ads, it's to show a decent chunk of gameplay to give people an idea how the system actually performs, which is more useful than just showing graphs with averages and minimums. I already showed some portions of the benchmarks in the previous giveaway video, but this video is more timeless as the title and purpose is purely showcasing performance for the given components. After the giveaway ends the other video will fall by the wayside where as this one will stay relevant long term

Is a score of 1,500 for cinabench good or?
Highly Caffeinated (10 months ago)
My oldest rig has the i5 2400 in it as well. I have it paired with a gtx 960 and I use it for when I have friends over for some lan gaming. It does surprisingly well with most games at 1080p and a mix of mid and high settings. The 2nd gen intel processors will definitely go down as one of my favorites. They stayed relevant longer then any other hardware I have ever owned.
Highly Caffeinated (10 months ago)
I ran the Heaven benchmark with the same settings as you did with my 960 and got 70.8 fps for comparison.
Joey Verhaar (10 months ago)
I built a system with an i5 2400 and a gtx 660 just last month! What a coincidence. I can confirm the benchmarks: 1080p with medium to high settings generally results in ±60fps. For the price, this combo works remarkably well.
Aggronn (2 months ago)
hi, I'm completely new to pc building. my screen's resolution is 1366x768, does that mean 720p? if so, how much easier will it run better fps in general, because I mostly see 1080p but doing really great.
Max Pain (7 months ago)
Got a GTX770 2gb and can get 59fps with all high settings and a mild overclock on the same i5 2400 and 8gb DDR3 on the Tomb Raider test.
Jacob Playzz (9 months ago)
Joey Verhaar is there a link so u can check it out
Adam Henry (9 months ago)
Ren Clon I agree. Report 1% low and 0.1% low as in games like pubg with a rig that gets 50-60fps on empty roads and act like a very good machine for the price you can go to like 10fps in early massive gunfights. Thats why those benchmarks are worth pile of shit, they will show you "gameplay" running around on empty field or vs 1 guy in minor town. Then people gonna buy that as a budget option and realize they can't play 80% of early game due to massive drops.
Joey Verhaar (9 months ago)
christian karl For case, I used the Masterbox 5 lite. I used red sleeved cables. Gelid Solutions makes them cheaply; I paid a total of roughly €13 for the three cables, 24, 8 and 6 pin. (if you plan on changing colors later, I suggest you buy them in white: that way it will reflect whatever color led you shine on them) and some 33 led fans. Similar fans can be found on aliExpress for $3 a piece. Other than that, I suggest buying a case with PSU shroud to hide the non-sleeved cables and cable combs add a nice touch (also found cheaply on AliExpress) I wish you the best of luck. :)

Don't like the just performance specs style. Much prefer to watch the build and then add this in to see what it all comes down to. No clue what your testing this on without the background.

+AtomicWaveBlast I'd say that's a bit high, I'd value that at around $80, but it's highly depending on the area you're in. What are gtx 770s 780s and amd 7950 7970 270X 280 280x going for in your area? Those are all roughly within the same tier, if those are going well below $100 then you might have been able to get a better deal

I just did a $100 build with a gtx 950 6gb ram and a phenom x6 1045t @ 3.7ghz. Do you think i did good?

And here I am so happy with my $180 purchase of just a GTX 970. I thought it was a good deal ._. Still looking for a motherboard+cpu+ram combo of maybe a 2600 or 3770.

Yea honestly i want expecting this kind of performance but if you can get a good overclock these things are surprisingly powerful

Damon May really? Its like a decade old... Single core performance is pretty poor

Suggestion next time you test CSGO: If you can test on a map like inferno or nuke because from my understanding those maps are less optimized and more graphic intensive. Other than that, good work :)

+p e d s ok, good to know, I don't play CSGO haha so I need suggestions like this :)

Wait, am I the only one notice that he re-used all the benchmark clips from the last video?
Nerd on a Budget (10 months ago)
+Σολο ΚοζΓιολο these sre the extended versions of the same clips, notice the last one had all of them over only a 3.5 minute window, and this one is 10 mins, ive always done that for these types of videos for people who want to see more gameplay to monitor, otherwise the benchmarking numbers won't be consistent since each benchmark will vary even for the same system on the same games (averages and mins will change slightly each run through)

the previous video didnt have any flaws but this one is also good i do like you saying the stough you do before the benchmarks i appreciate a piece of u Danny the blupers and then the discusion :D

+Sameer Rishi most of the discussion for this system is in the budget build showdown linked in the description, I didn't want to repeat all the information in this one, it's for people who want quick benchmarks for this pair of parts :)
