I tried searching but couldn't find a confident answer. I was able to pick up a used pc for a good price for my mame cab. Specs bellow.
Windows 7 Pro
500 GB SATA
Windows 7 pro 64bit
But the graphics card is onboard. I know the graphics card doesn't play much of a role but if I wanted to dable into 3D games like blitz. Will I be fine with my current set up or will I need a graphics card to achieve a noticeable increase in performance? Also, what about Hyperspin and no Graphics card?
I'm mostly looking to play 2d games but I want to be able to play 3D games if possible.
And as far as overclocking I know you don't have the flexibility without the k chip but I guess you can turbo boost it to 3.9 for 1 core and it degrades .1 for every core. Will I need to do this for 3d games? Seems like people don't need to overclock the i5's in the 3.3 Ghz league.
If a graphics card is a must then I really don't want to drop to much cash on one. Maybe $100-150 at most.
Thanks in advance.
