Graphics card!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

 

I wanted to get people opinion on what graphics card is better. Would you rather have a EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB KO GAMING Video Card or a Sapphire Radeon RX 5600 XT 6 GB PULSE Video Card?

I would compare the prices personally. It's a very close tossup when it comes to gaming performance. What's the price difference? I'd also look at several benchmarks and use that to judge.


Gaming Build:

CPU: Ryzen 7 3800x   |  GPU: Asus ROG STRIX 2080 SUPER Advanced (2115Mhz Core | 9251Mhz Memory) |  Motherboard: Asus X570 TUF GAMING-PLUS  |  RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws DDR4 3600MHz 16GB  |  PSU: Corsair RM850x  |  Storage: 1TB ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro, 250GB Samsung 840 Evo, 500GB Samsung 840 Evo  |  Cooler: CM ML240R  |  Case: Lian Li PC-O11

 

Peripherals:

Monitor: LG 34GK950F  |  Sound: Sennheiser HD 598  |  Mic: Blue Yeti  |  Keyboard: Corsair K95 RGB Platinum  |  Mouse: Logitech G502

 

Laptop:

Asus ROG Zephryus G15

Ryzen 7 4800HS, GTX1660Ti, 16GB DDR4 3200Mhz, 512GB nVME, 144hz

The 5600 XT is $289 and the RTX 2016 is going for $300.

For such a small price difference, I'd take the 2060. The software suite and better encoder are handy.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It's basically personal preference at this point, if you value the benefits that come with the 2060 get it, if you value the better cooler then the 5600XT would be the better option. If you value the benefits of the 2060 but don't want the bad cooler, then you would need to pay more.

I personally would probably look into better coolers for the 2060, mainly because the niche games that I play seems to favor Nvidia GPUs like crazy, but when considering only normal AAA gaming I would probably go with the 5600XT due to the better cooler.

I know it sucks to hear this but if you can I’d wait like a few more months (probably August or September) for the RTX 30 series. The thing is that the RTX 20 series has been pretty bad price to performance since the beginning, and the discount you’d be getting a 2060, right before the 30 series launches is only $50 for its launch MSRP. I can’t guarantee that the 30 series will bring the incredible price/performance that Pascal and Maxwell brought but it will give you a lot more for your many that a 2060 will, I’m certain. If you’re fine with the performance of 2060/5600xt and don’t need more, they’ll likely be heavily discounted to, but if you can’t wait I’d probably go with the Nvidia card. Hope this helps :)
