I currently have a self-made PC that is in this case and has a similar build to what this guy made on PCPartPicker. One of the main differences is that I have a much older CPU (1st-gen intel i5 overclocked) and a much weaker video card (Nvidia GTX 760 reference).
At the time of creating my build I went with this video card due to it’s blower-style design which was recommended to keep the case at lower temperatures. After several years it has finally stopped being able to run newer games. I am in search of a more powerful card that might work for my build. If this is a bad or impractical idea due to thermals I’m open to buying a new case to transfer my system and my potential new video card into.
Other important info:
*I dualboot linux and would need the video card to be supported on Ubuntu.
*My budget it about $300 but I could make a little wiggle room if needed.
I am looking for advice as to where to go with this.
