Question about value graphics cards

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys.


So I know the 1660S is a really good value budget graphics card, as compared to say the 5600 XT. The 16 series naming scheme has me all kinds of messed up, so I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for cheaper 16 series graphics cards that still offered decent value.

@BlueScope819 so I can see your post

The 1650S is also a good GPU for the money, unless you can get an RX 580 locally for significantly less. It's maybe a couple frames slower than the 580 on average, but pulls about half the power.


Other than that, the 1660 really doesn't slot in anywhere, the 1650 is only useful for low profile machines or ones with fire hazard power supplies and the 1660Ti is kind of pointless because of the 1660 Super and 5600XT.

just don't get the 1660 ti no matter what, it has almost no difference between it and the 50-60 dollar cheaper 1660S i think that the 1650S is good, what are you using it for

Well the 1650 super is basically a 1660 with a smaller frame buffer. If you can find a 580 for cheaper and you have the power for it. You can go for that. 

1660 ti was killed by both the 1660 super ( performance the same and has a faster frame buffer and costs way less ) and the 5600xt ( around the same price and absolutely murdered the ti).
