RX 580 or wait

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I will upgrade my pc in the near future to a Ryzen 5 1600 AF as well as 16 gb of ram from an i3 8100.


I am currently using a 1050 Ti. 


I've taken a good look around and checked out different budget options for GPU but I am doubting what to get. 


I still get the sense that the 580 is a good buy price/performance despite its age (found it for $120 used). Is it still a good buy or should I wait or get something else? (Mind you, the cheapest new 1660 super is $300 where I live).

Guess budget is around 150-200$. 

Thanks in advance

Getting a 1650 Super is a good upgrade, a bit better than the RX580, I'd say if you're comfortable spending a more for a 1650S its a good choice, but if you found an RX580 for $120 its a really good deal too.

Okay, update, do you buy the 570 with a years warranty left and only a year old or the 580 thats 3 years old and no warranty? I am a bit scared its a mining card. Same price tho.

Not sure how bad mining affects cards, but if you're not confident buying a three year old mining card, a 570 can usually run high/ultra 1080p at around 60fps more or less depending on what games you play.
