Welp I Messed Up. Can Anyone Help Me Find a New GPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So heres the story. I wanted a fan controller for my system because only one fan slot on motherboard. While installing this item, I fried my gpu and my motherboard. I should've of gone here first before picking out a MB but here is my system specs

 

AMD Ryzen 5 2400g

Asus Prime X470-Pro (it has rgb if that matters)

2 x (Patriot Memory 2400 C16 Series DDR4) [they are 8gb each]

500gb HDD

480 GB SSD

 

Right now system works due to Vega 11 graphics, but its a real bummer coming from my GTX 1060 6gb

I was thinking about getting a RTX 2070 because I plan on upgrading the cpu.

So I guess my question is for streaming if I have a budget of 500$ for a gpu and a 500$ budget for a cpu what should I plan on upgrading to or with?

Please ask if you have future questions that might better your suggestion

 

EDIT:

PSU: Evga SuperNova 650 G+

I would also rather buy from amazon if that effect anything, as the two day shipping is a big bonus

there you go, remember to update the BIOS before swapping CPU.

Would the saving of 80 dollars really be worth the higher speed in the ram?

Edit: What I meant is that I would like ray tracing, so is the 80 dollar savings by getting the AMD 5700 XT really worth it?

not really unless you intend to manually overclock. 

 

you can also spend another 100$ on a 2070s
