Ok in a few days I'm assembling a new PC. I've already got all the guts - just waiting for the case to get here via UPS. The intention here is a family box, mainly for internet, school work (daughter in 8th grade), some video editing on home movies, etc. Not gaming. Not really. I'm not a person who has the time for current PC games. But I do enjoy some retro gaming and while I generally prefer playing on real hardware, I will use an emu for the sake of convenience or improved features. From some googling, it seems the new PC may be able to run Dolphin decently at 1080p as-is, and with a GPU added it'd crush it. So... 1) if getting improved playback out of Dolphin were the aim (higher res, textures), but no real concern about playing the latest AAA PC titles, what single video card would you add? (pls don't suggest sli/bridge configs. I ain't goin' there.) The objective here is to get something that makes a real difference without being overkill for my purposes. 2) To me, 1080p sounds like a super-acceptable resolution for GC & Wii games, even w/ enhanced textures. If I am satisfied with that resolution, would this PC handle things ok without the addition of a GPU? (i.e. Intel HD 630 graphics & 16GB ram) 3) Just a quick casual look at newegg shows GTX 1050 Ti cards in the range I'm thinking would do the job (bang 4 buck). Is there any reason I should be shooting higher than that? And if that's a good choice, which particular model of GTX 1050 Ti card would you recommend?? Here's the list of all the stuff I've already purchased: ASRock z270 Killer sli/ac motherboard Intel i5 7600k 3.8GHz (Kaby Lake) 91W Intel BXTS15A heatsink/fan - I'm not OC'ing so that's enuff 8GB x 2 (i.e. 16GB) G.Skill TridentZ DDR4 3200 Samsung 960 EVO M.2 250GB PCI-e SSD EVGA 500W power supply ASUS no-frills DVD burner/drive Cooler Master N400 case Win 10 Pro 64bit MS Office 2016 There are also some conventional SATA drives that are being migrated over from our current desktop, but I'm really looking forward to seeing how running Windows off that M.2 drive goes. Zippy-dee-doo-dah. Thanks for your thoughts/assistance.
