Recommended Posts

waiting more to upgrade when new NVIDIA  cards are launch and for cyberpunk 2077,maybe CPU also.

may 5-6yr old PC died(i7 4770,8 GB). did quick new one to hold me over.

i 5 9400 f

16 GB 2666

still using old AMD r 209 4g, works fine on start craft 2,wow, and doom 2016, but want to play the new doom. Play mostly on 1080p,might go up  to 2k at some point.

was looking at 1660 cards, but came across a 5500 xt for 209.00 us with 3 free games. Makes it seem like a good deal to hold me over tell next gen CPU and GPU are coming soon in the  months.

don't buy AMD ever. people want to claim the drivers are fixed but someone on here just a few hours ago said that they updated to the latest drivers and they are still not working.

Imo that is completely waist of money if you want to buy new gpu now and buy it again when new ones will be released. Just wait for the new ones, your card is still working.
