With minimum requirements moving on, and a sometimes expensive price for hardware compared to what your money can buy in some modest cases going for 2nd hand hardware is not a bad idea. However, it doesn't mean it will perform bad or good.I made a list about hardware, that you guys could be helpful by telling if :1)it works.2)how it is compared to modern equivalents,3) if it's worth the shot.


I took LM's recommended settings in consideration for this list so it makes the job easier:


-old i5s (prior to 6th gen)

-any form of RYZEN (3.5.8)

-i7 920 to 3770k (specify)

-xeon even dual socket (specify)

-non k modern intel (specify)

any i3s prior 6th gen



-GTX 9XX(specify) 

-Any radeon R-

-GTX 1050(even TI)


BTW any budget advice that could help reducing costs is welcome

Best regards, Charly


My system specs: Core 2 quad Q9650 @ 3.51ghz, GTX1060 6gb, 8gb ddr3 1333, 1Tb seagate barracuda, 500gb wd blue
