Alright, so im on a budget, and i need a new computer because my old amd laptop as quit on me, i plan on buying a computer with a VERY cheap budget of $100 and ALL it needs to be able to do is run fortnite at a STEADY 60 fps. I've looked at this https://www.ebay.com/itm/FAST-Dell-Optiplex-3010-Desktop-PC-Core-i5-3470-8GB-500GB-Windows-10-Home/312223735246?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D5f3a0f03c7954cfaabd04c708b456fac%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D2%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D312223735246%26itm%3D312223735246&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507#viTabs_0

And i plan on buying it tommaro but what do you guys think? it has integrated graphics which i heard are garbage, but will it do me a solid 60 fps on fortnite even on the lowest settings?

ps. im not new to computer gaming, i know alot about specs but i've never really talked about integrated graphics except for the fact that there usually not good.

Thank you ill watch that now, Sorry to probably be annoying, but if you would could you find the best upgrades possible for around 100-130 dollars? You seem much much much more experienced and much better at this then i am for sure lol. Thanks in advance for all your help.

Thank you so much, but i feel like it lacks more then just the graphics card, it has a Intel pentium e5800 and only 3gb of ddr3, do you think it would still run fine with the same processor? I can probably get some more money for the ram.

This only supports up to max 4gb so you can only replace 1 of them. It should have a single 1gb and the other 2gb.
Something like this perhaps:

The CPU in that is bellow the minimum requirements for Fortnite. You will not get anything for $100 to run it, maybe $200 or $300, check craigslist in your area for used computers, people sell their older gaming systems all the time you may be able to find something. Buying something for $100 that won't work the way you want is taking your money and tossing it out the window. Get more money together, get something that meets your needs.
