No, Get an RX 570 instead. Same price, and better performance. You can also at times find RX580s for the same price as a 570. The 1650 is a garbage GPU with no real place.

Nope, you want a RX 580 or a GTX 1660 minimum to make it a senseful upgrade.

Nope. Buy an RX 570 if you want a performance upgrade. It’s cheaper than the 1650 and performs better.

If your PSU has a six-pin, get an RX 570 instead. If your CPU doesn't have a six-pin, buy one that does, then buy a used RX 570 from eBay for $80-90 and you'll still spend less than a GTX 1650 would cost.

The PSU would have to have a 6 pin because of the RX 460. However, the 570 needs an 8 pin .


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

My Power Color Red Devil RX480 has an 8pin but runs fine with a 6pin.

Regardless, we need to know more about that "500W" PSU.


There is a PSU called "SL-500", that looks like a 500W but its not.

Not sure why you'd include a Mercedes here but ok. 


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.
