What gpu should I buy?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

I am looking into starting computer gaming and i need a pc to build. I have no idea on how I would choose a graphics card. I only need 1080p to start off, and I don't want to spend more than $200 usd on the card alone. I am looking into upgrading in the future, buy can anyone recommend a good gpu for now? Thanks in advance!

You say you don't have too much money? How much money do you actually have to spend and what country are you in? That'll give me and other people a better idea of what card is right for you.

Do you have a specific budget for the whole thing?

 

Usually in America you can get used GTX 970 for about 80-90$, and they are excellent 1080p cards.

used rx570/580 , so you can upgrade sooner

new gtx1660 non ti , pretty perfect for 1080p solid 60fps+

rtx2060 "super", may never have chance to upgrade for gpu at 1080p

Without knowing the detail of your system and how much you have to spend a reasonable answer is not possible.


80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

I don't know why people still recommend the 1050 Ti, the RX570 is pretty much better in most, if not all, aspects than the 1050 Ti and is cheaper. Similar story of RX 580 vs GTX 1060 although the performance gap is less.

The GTX 1660 is a great starter card, while not havin the higher price and issues the RTX cards have, but if the newer cards come out, then the old ones are projected to drop down (-$100).  The RTX 2060 will be around the price of the GTX 1660 (around July) for liquidation for the newer cards that're projected to be released to compete w/AMD Navi cards.  Waitin a month'll give you more options and likely price drops on older tech that's still valid today.

Hey guys, 
Thanks for the help so far. Some people are asking some questions on my build. I don't want to spend more that $200 on a GPU. below is the rest of my build, I already have my peripherals and stuff, I am just focusing on the actual pc. This is my first actual build so if anything doesn't look right i appreciate the help.

Never pay that much for windows, you can get a copy of windows 10 pro for $5 on ebay. Also i would also look for a GTX 1070 or 980ti for $200 on ebay

With these data i would rather go for the 1070 than the 980ti because the 980ti is very very powerhungry

Otherwise a more powerful PSU will be required

I understand that your budget is limited, but it's not a good idea to run your system on an HDD storage. Better buy like 120GB SSD for Windows only and your HDD let it for games. And I really recommend RX580 that's what I'm using but you can buy RX570 slightly less performance and less by 50$ maybe more. And I recommend you to not stay using a 450 Watt power. And no you are not forced to change like even my system is very heavy and uses 400 Watt only.

I think this looks great overall.

 

Is there any reason why you are buying more case fans? That case you picked comes with solid fans already.

 

This won't be a power hungry or high heat outputting build.

 

As for the graphics card:

Better choice than the RX 580 and you will find an RX 580 with a similar cooler at similar prices at that $200 price range.
