Graphics card for birthday present,

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I plan to get a gpu for a friend's birthday, my budget is usd$ 490.00. He wants to play at 1440p and he's got a LG 27 Inch 1440p 100hrz monitor, I was thinking of getting him either a RTX 2060 6gb or a RTX 2070 8gb, these are the few models available to me in short notice since his birthday is this Saturday. 

 

Asus ROG Strix RTX 2060 6gb - $419.99

Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2060 6gb - $412.99

Zotac Gaming RTX 2060 6gb amp edition - $389.99

Zotac Gaming RTX 2070 8gb Blower edition - $489.99

MSI Armour RTX 2070 8gb - $499.99

Which of these cards is the best choice for his ryzen system. Thanks

At 499.99 you can get an EVGA 2070. That'll give your friend a good handful of warranty and some super awesome customer support

 

I wish I had a friend like you

Wouldn’t get any of those myself but like mentioned, if you can get the evga variant for that price, that’s what I’d want. 2070 that is.

For a single graphics card system, a non-blower will be worth the $10, So I would think the MSI Armor is the way to go. Also they tend to receive waterblocks so more options down the line,
