Looking to get into PC gaming?

Have you been thinking about getting into PC gaming? Not sure where to start? Most half decent desktop PCs purchased in the last 5 years are capable of running PC games. They are just missing one major component. The proper video card (GPU).

But which one is good? And how much should you spend? Since you probably are not a serious gamer (yet), between $100 and $150 is a good figure to work with. Video cards in this price range are usually for the entry level and they offer good overall performance. The Geforce GTX 1050 Ti is a great example of one of these cards.

Be careful using that price range at a department store. Sometimes they have older cards and markup bargain cards so that they are in that $100-$150 price range. 

Another thing to be aware of is that sometimes video cards (GPUs) have extra power requirements. This means that you could be purchasing a power supply as well. The card will list the requirements on the box.

One more thing to watch out for is the size of the card. You will have issues with a slim case. Mirco cases may be a tight fit as well. Usually, the budget-minded cards are smaller but it is something to be aware of.
