No its a horrible card will just run Age of empires on medium but not well and would depend on rest of PC specs wether it was even worth upgrading the 710 is a basic model. the onboard graphics on most chips are better than this card.
No, what’s the rest of the pc if it was built when the card came out your pc will be getting old and might not play latest games....

8gb ram quad core processor 1tb storage i just wanted something to run basic games
@_Tris_ 8gb ram quad core processor 1tb storage i just wanted something to run basic games

reccomended for fortnite
  • CPU: Core i5 2.8GHz
  • RAM: 8GB RAM
  • HDD: 16GB Free Space
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 / AMD Radeon HD 7870 or equivalent video card with dedicated memory of 2GB or higher VRAM.
  • OS: Windows 7, 8.1, or Windows 10 64-bit
  • DirectX: Version 11 or better

you would be better off with a SSD and do you know what quad core processor? and the RAM DDR3 or 4?
you would need to upgrade the graphics card

thats over 200 different CPUs so without knowing what model it is i dont know i wouldnt put a graphics card worth more than £100 into it really if you put a really good graphics card in the rest wouldnt keep up so it wouldnt use it guess it doesnt even say what speed the RAM is running at if it doesnt even say the CPU model. where have you bought this from with so little info? (just so I can avoid)
The GT 710 was an entry level card when it launched back in 2013. These days it's the slowest graphics card you can buy - substantially slower than the integrated graphics built into modern CPUs. It primarily exists these days as a basic card for workstations whose CPUs don't have integrated graphics and as a secondary card to add more monitor outputs

In short, you've been ripped off if you were sold it as a gaming machine. For gaming you'll get better frame rates by removing it - assuming the 'intel quad core' you bought wasn't also a rip-off (e.g. an ancient one from over a decade ago that's a fraction of the performance of a new one).

What intel quad core. Like I said if it’s a old one you maybe better off refusing it and get money back. My friend had an old i7 but it won’t run red dead redemption 2, he had a good gpu in it as well.... I know you don’t want a aaa game machine but you might not have a machine fit for purpose already...

Yeah so now i want to return this pc back its due for delivery tommorow do i contact seller to contact dpd for return or do i refuse the delivery
It's a bit unfair on the seller to simply refuse delivery if you didn't understand what you were purchasing.

Of course if it was falsely advertised or the specs don't match the description that's another mater but to mess the seller around because you "don't know a lot about PC stuff" seems a little unfair imho.

you could contact seller and say its not a fast gaming machine and wont accept delivery see what they say, in the end you can always refuse if they get akward.... you ask what i5 it is as well. i dont see how they can call a gtx 710 a fast machine...
Where was it advertsed? Please copy/paste a link. I'm intrigued to see what was listed.

Fair enough. That listing screams avoid at all costs.

The only listings worse are the "4 GHZ x 4 Core = 16 GHZ Processor" crap we used to see.

On that basis I wouldn't blame you rejecting it. There's a distinction between your every day individual selling his used PC and something else entirely misleading people with listings like that.
