    My PC has an AMD 7750 8gb ram and am trying to upgrade my onboard graphics card so I can run this game.

    What card (price is an issue) :)

    Thanks

    Depends on what your price point is. Under normal prices (which most GPUs aren't right now), these are my recommendations:

    $100-120: RX 560 or GTX 1050

    $150-180: RX 570 or GTX 1050Ti

    $200-230: RX 580 4GB or 8GB

    $250-300: GTX 1060

    $400: RX Vega 56 or GTX 1070

    $500: GTX 1080

    $700+: GTX 1080TI

    Want to burn money: Titan Xp

    Ask questions if you want!

    An Athlon X2 7750 is well below the system requirements for that game.

    You don't just need a video card, you need a complete motherboard/CPU/RAM upgrade too. These are MINIMUMS:

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Minimum PC Requirements
    • OS: 64-bit Windows 7, 8.1, or 10.
    • CPU: Intel Core i3-4340 or AMD FX-6300.
    • GPU: nVidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB.
    • Memory: 6 GB.
    • Storage: 30 GB.
    • DirectX: 11.1 compatible video card or equivalent.
    Recommended:

    OS: 64-bit Windows 10
    Processor: AMD Ryzen 5-1600 / Intel Core i5-7600K
    Memory: 8 GB RAM
    Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB or better

    You are looking at $750+ CDN to play that game. You might as well just build a new computer and repurpose what you have.

    You may or may not need a new PSU depending on what you have now.

    GeForce GTX 1060 | Specifications | GeForce (400 watts). Given that, I would get a 500 watt PSU so you have a little overhead to work with. Some will disagree that you do not need any overhead if it is a high quality PSU.
