First pc build -- NVIDIA GPU ADVICE

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Building my first pc, i had pcs before but this time i am building it myself and looking for a "most bang for the buck" graphic card for good 1080p gaming.

 

These are the prices of some nvidia gpus in my country,

 

GIGABYTE Nvidia Gtx 1660         US$ 285

GIGABYTE Nvidia Gtx 1660ti       US$ 345

GIGABYTE Nvidia Gtx 2060         US$ 430

GIGABYTE Nvidia Gtx 2060 Super US$ 510

 

Which one is most bang for my buck gpu, also how to calculate their relative performance (like how much % 2060 Super better than 2060 etc.).

You really can't, at least very specifically, because it comes down to the model, resolution, game, etc. Of the cards you're considering, the 1660 offers the best price to performance, however that 2060 may come down in price a bit more and be a better contender.


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

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained

For 1080p you could get away with the 2060, but it's worth if you can get the Super

The most 'bang for the buck' graphics card for 1080p is none of those. The undisputed king of 1080p is the RX 570. The value of that card is unmatched, no card even comes close. You'll have to turn down settings to high or medium on some games, but for the most part you should still get 60fps in most games at ultra.

 

If there's some reason you can't get the 570, then out of the ones you have mentioned..the 1660 is the best option for 1080p 60hz, while the 2060 is the sweetspot for 1080p 144hz (low/medium in most cases).

The RX 580 costs only slightly more than the RX 570 especially used but even new to a lesser extent and does considerably better getting 60fps on ultra for 1080p. The RX 590 is coming down in price but not quite there yet especially new. 

 

In the used Nvidia category, 1060 6GB has been auctioning for only slightly over $100. A used 1070 is still pricey since they are going for about the same price as a new 1660 (non-TI) but sometimes go for significantly less.
