You will need a new PC.  Your gaming desktop does not even come close.

  • Processor Core: i5 2.8 Ghz.
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM.
  • Video Card: Nvidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent DX11 GPU.
  • Video Memory: 2 GB VRAM.

Basic requirements for Fortnite

I just happened to have purchased a desktop setup for some relatives  of mine two days ago and stuck to a strict  budget. I purchased a certified refurbished HP EliteDesk 800 G1 tower desktop PC. They will still need to upgrade to a video card to play the game. The following link shows the system I bought.

Thank you very much for your help, Erico. I 'm not very experienced ithese new upgardings.

But I Have a firends who is selling his PC HP TouchSmart IQ500 (HP TouchSmart IQ500), does this do the job with an upgrade ?

My son wishes to keep the "touchschreen" option on his PC.

Olivier

You're welcome.

Unfortunately, the graphics solution on the HP TouchSmart IQ500 will be the roadblock with this one.

Fortnite will not run on the HP TouchSmart IQ500 PC.

 

The nVidia GeForce 9300M with 256 MB of VRAM is too anemic for the high graphics requirements of Fortnite. 

 

The fact that the GeForce 9300M or the GeForce 9600M are MXM cards, makes sourcing a compatible replacement that does have enough power a not an option.

 

Something like the PC that I purchased for my relatives is a viable upgrade option that  is in budget for many wannabe Gamers.  HP TouchSmart AIO desktop PCs are definitely not gaming machines and are worst case scenario for graphics hardware updates.
