You can look at the 5700XT Sapphire Nitro+ or Powercolor Red Devil :)

? You can find them quite easily for that price 

 

2080 and 2080S maybe not new, even used may be a bit above budget but the rest is easily within the budget

With even it's highest OC's,...at 1080p in say BFV,.. not with only 8 threads

(Plenty playable, not maximized like a locked 120-144hz in some heavy scenes it'll drop)

Many lighter games will work great, some are just well optimized..

BFV (my heavy CPU 8thread aware example) - 1440p 75-120hz, likely in majority of titles
Most Games 4K Easily


The CPU can only go so far in games (90-120fps ranges and then CPU usages spike or GPU usages drop or the engine just can't provide more past IPC limits per Thread.

A Good pairing if you play above 1080p, if using 1080p, #NotAllGames are equal but some will not be efficiently using the GPU.


Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz
