Video Card Upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I know I'm kinda new to this whole PC build scene, but I'm currently running a Quad Core R3 3200g paired with a 4gig RX 570. I was thinking about upgrading to the 8gig RX 580 near the end of the year. Would it be worth it to upgrade to the 580? Or should I just save my money and get a better monitor setup (since I'm still running everything on a 32 inch Roku TV) ?

I think that really depends on what you are trying to accomplish.   I personally would wait until the new AMD RNDA GPUs and NVIDIA 3000 GPUs are released.  

 

The older GPUs should drop in price (one would hope).

I think that might be what I'm going to wind up doing, tbh. The 570 is still a capable card. The final component I need for my system is a 1 TB SSD for my game drive, and I'll get that next month. I might just go ahead and grab my monitor and only upgrade if it becomes absolutely necessary. I just wanted folks opinion on it before I commit either way. I've still got about five months before I decide, but it's always nice to have folks advice on stuff, since I'm kinda new to this whole scene and all.

580, nah. Not that much faster than 570. Out of current cards aim for at leadt the 1660S, hopefully 2060 or 5600XT or above.
