Can you still play games on a 5 year old video card?

5 years is a long life for a video card, so how well does a card from 2012 perform in 2017?

    Check out the old Nehalem throwback:

    First gen i7 4.2GHz,
    X58 motherboard,
    3x4GB of 1600MHz DDR3,
    RAID 0 SATAII SSDs,
    and one or two GTX 690

    What about AMD though… I got R9280 3GB and it doesn't really work well in some scenarios.. heck I even get 100+ only in CSGO

    Yeah the only thing holding back my brother even with a 770 is his Core i3 4170.
    Shockingly enough.

    ewww CS:GO I wish I could get a refund on that crap…. That game feels like the worlds most outdated shooter that shouldn't be popular.
    Ghost Recon: Phantoms was so good and it shutdown… while Crap & Go is still…going ._.

    Although some components aren't 5 years old or older, I'm still playing games on my 4770K + GTX970 FTW and typically getting 60fps or more on high settings for most games I play.

    build 2 5 year old pc using both nvidia /amd and intel/amd than just switch the graphics cards on them to test how well they do today. I know youll get the whole amd vs intel but its just for people who need a good learning ground and cost to start in the pc world 🙂

    I'd recommend comparing mid/high end computers( i5/i7 and GTX x60/x70/x80) from 3, 4, 5, and years ago and and seeing how they run on various settings in newer games. But I would start at the lowest settings and lowest resolution. Then see how high you can increase settings/resolution before the FPS drops below 60FPS and then 30 FPS.
