    Looking at boosting my gaming in this machine, what would be your choices of card that will max out the CPU.

    It had dual AMD cards but one died, AMD/Nvidea doesnt matter.

    Yes its a old outdated PC that should be burnt and a CPU upgrade would be ideal but hoping to get a cheap card as someone upgrades or ex mining

    I have a similar system for my VR rig, running a R9 Fury, works pretty well and probably about as much as you would want to pair with a FX CPU.

    Depends on your budget, a GTX 970 seems to be the sweet spot for value at the moment, can be picked up for around $150 off Gumtree.

    Your best bet is the RX 570 4GB for under $200 NEW. Comes with $140 worth of games too. It's faster in many titles than the GTX 970 too.
