Which graphics card for me?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have been watching, listening and researching for about two weeks, but i still cant make up my mind. I have a semi-solid budget of $350 dollars for a graphics card and i cant settle on one for me, i play relatively low usage games such as pubg and overwatch. Though i have played ark:survival evolved and the experience was garbage. My case and motherboard need an upgrade as well but i think i have found a suitable asus and be quiet for the job. I just wanted some *professional* advice on a card since i cant decide, thanks!

Agreed that AMD reveal at computex will be very interesting but those products will likely not come to market till March.


As for a gpu to get now for $350, new you're looking at a 1060 6gb/ rx480.  If you're comfortable shopping used you should be able to find a gtx 1070.

Honestly, get a GTX 1060 6GB, or a GTX 1050 Ti. I have had my 1050 Ti for over 2 years now, and I can run just about everything I throw at it that is relatively new, at 1080p, and medium-high settings. 

Then, with the saved money, spend it on other areas. SSD, Memory, or save up for a new Mobo/CPU
