1660 ti opinions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all, looking to get opinions if this would be a good card for me. Looking to build a decent midrange gaming setup. Looking at a Ryzen 3600, Msi Tomahawk Max B450, and 16gb ram. Was looking at the Msi 1660 ti gaming x graphics card. I mostly play esports games (fortnite, cod, apex) and games like gta, resident evil...Mostly looking to get good fps on a 1080p monitor (144hz). Would this card be adequate for my system and games?

Msi 1660 ti gaming x

how much does it cost? the 1660 super has similar performance to the ti, while being cheaper, while the rx 5600xt, and rtx2060 are usually a bit more expensive, but much better. the ti is in an awkard position and I wouldn't recommend it to be honest.

Yes, if you can get a good price. You could also look for a 1070/1070ti for same (1070) or better (1070ti) performances if you're not bothered with getting used parts.

The whole 16XX line up is in an akward position imo....

It costs $285. I was looking at a 5700 xt or 2060 super but saw this card and thought I could save myself over $100, but dont want it to bottleneck me either.

I don't understand how you'll bottleneck. Don't get a 1660Ti for the same money you can get a RX 5600XT which will be better all around for gaming, and cost the same.

 

 

For the money these are the best options:

By bottlenecking I mean based on my system and the types of games I play do you think a 1660 ti will fail to deliver high fps in esports games or fail to play other games in high/ultra settings at 1080p?

Not really, but I still wouldn't get it over the RX 5600XT.

I honestly haven't looked much into the 5600XT. I have been looking into the 5700XT. I'll have to check it out!

Well you can look at the RX 5700 or 5700XT as well, but for the same money as a 1660 Ti you can get the better RX 5600XT, I linked pricing links and a video.
