Hi Guys

Just wondering if any of you are playing F1 2020 ?
and if so , does it play ok on a sub standard pc ?

My pc is i5 64 bit, 16 ram, but does not have a graphics card, and I cant find one that will fit

I don't want to buy the game (44) for it to do nothing

steve

Try this;

However I can say with fair certainty that without a graphics card you won't get anywhere near.

Out of interest, why won't it fit? No PCI Express slot? Or is it a physical limitation? So graphics cards can be found in half height configuration, although they can be a bit more expensive.

if its just a physical space issue you might be able to do something with one of these: link

My new pc is a mini tower, and the Nvdia graphics card is about two times two big

What CPU is it? Some of the newest AMD APUs might but can it definitely not fit a SFF card? Most powerful one I'm aware of is the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GT LP. Performance is never going to be the best as often in v small systems the psu is a bit anaemic. If the computer has a thunderbolt3 port (or could have one added via a card) you could add an external gpu though they're fairly expensive for what you get. I'd even consider running a pcie cable and power supply out the back and use an external standard card- proper ghetto install.

I just had a quick search Ryzen 3400G APU with a slight OC runs F1 2019 at average fps of 61 on medium.

I am thinking of getting an xboxone or ps4, as my PC is in the spare room, yet if I go down the F1 game, this will be done in the garage, as there's no car in there anymore

xboxones on ebay are cheaper than half decent graphics card

is it a dell mini tower by any chance,

I have a i5 4590 and installed a GPU, if it is a dell you may also need a different PSU and also a power adapter

I know you can get the GTX 1050 in a half size card

Yes it is a Dell mini tower/destop

Ive just noticed it says 8.o ram, yet I was positive it was 16 ??

that will be the next problem!

liam.mccaffrey - 22/7/20 at 08:06 AM

what is the model number of the pc 7020/9020 etc
with the mini towers you can't upgrade the PSU (easily) so any GPU may be marginal for power comsumption. I think the standard dell ones are 290w.
I think the low profile/low power GTX 1050 "might" be ok.



I've just done all this and bought a 7020 Desktop tower as they use a stadart ATX size power supply. Still had to buy an adapter harness as some dell mother boards use a non standard connector

I would agree with this, by the time you've bought the graphics card, and the memory, and the extra PSU you'll need, and then found something else that is a bottleneck, and after all that find you can only play it on minimum settings anyway, you'd be better off with an Xbox.

Although I would probably suggest PS4, but I have a bit of a bias there!


steve m - 22/7/20 at 09:30 AM

Thanks guys, I appreciate your help, yet again

Now its a mass debate of Ps4 v Xbox, and I know less than nothing on either !!

liam.mccaffrey - 22/7/20 at 09:57 AM

I believe the xbox is generally better for racing type games. Though im no expert.

Personally, I would not be investing in a current gen console right now - PS5 / Xbox Series X are due at the end of the year.

Once that happens, you've got maybe 6 months to a year before PS4/XboxOne new releases stop entirely.
