Budget GPU for 1440p 120fps

Bruh, can you just recommend me a 2060 card that isn't shit because you obviously know what you are talking about.

Thanks

If you don't plan on streaming, for just slightly more than that 2060 KO you could get a really good 5600XT, which is about on par in terms of raw performance:

For the 2060, Gigabyte's Windforce cards tend to be quite reasonably priced and are fairly decent:

Heya

I'm on a fairly tight budget for my new pc build and was wondering if I could be suggested a Graphics Card that could manage about 1440p and 120fps in games like Apex Legends and Rainbow Six Siege with medium settings. I won't mention what my actually budget for the card is since it could vary before I order my parts but just anything under about $500 is welcome but keep in mind cheaper is better.

Maybe an RX 5700 XT for $400? I have an RX 5700 ($329) I just flashed it with a RX 5700 XT bios(about 10% more performance). I am happy with it. I play most of my games 60+ FPS on ultra settings considering I am playing on a 3440 x 1440p ultra wide. With Rainbow Six Siege you can definitely get into tripple digits. These cards are amazing for the price. Anything higher you probably can go for the 2070 Super.

 

But imo for budget 1440p on high settings RX 5700($329) / RX 5700 XT($400) is hard to beat.


And by the way their drivers are a lot better now. When they released I had tons of problems now I don’t have any!

I wouldn’t say the H510 is a bad case. I mean the airflow isn’t that great but it’s not thee worst. I don’t know for it’s price range for it being a budget case, build quality and features are pretty nice. And the cable management oh boy it makes it so easy.

oh, i am not talking about cable management, i'm specifically pointing out that it has bad airflow.

also for 70 pounds, there are better cases.

I am buying from the UK because I have figured that's where I can get the most value for money, obviously not shipping from the US because it'll take months and cost a fuckton. I live in Ireland

If not, reccommend me a good case in your opinion for the same-ish price. I must admit I am considering overclocking so yes, good airflow is important to me.

One more thing, this is my first build and I am without much experience apart from countless hours of reasearch on youtube etc which I think is pretty obvious by now. I've heard that for your first build you might want to get a larger case so you don't really have to go through any of the headaches associated with components not fitting inside. Can you confirm that the one @Mateyyy listed would be fine in this regard.

Thanks all

Also, will a 5700xt be able to handle say 1080p 120fps Apex Legends at high-ish settings obviously with unnecessary stuff turned off.

Plus, are you sure that a RTX 2060 could do 1080p 120fps at medium to high settings? I'm just talking out of my ass and that could absolutely be the case. If so, confirm pls.

I'm asking because I'm not sure what you'd also have to pay in shipping for these components.

The 2060 is a solid 1080p card, it should run Siege and Apex with ease at 120+ FPS. The 5700XT in the UK build at 375 quid is faster though by quite a significant amount.

I don't have to worry about shipping since most of them I can get on amazon with free shipping for little to no extra cost. Even if a part doesn't ship to here I can use https://addresspal.anpost.ie which is like a service by the postage service to get packages sent to the UK and the USA forwarded on to me and it costs like 10 euros every time obviously depending on the weight of the package.

 

So if I only have a say 120hz or 144hz monitor that's 1080p I'll be getting better value for money with the 2060 and the card can do those kinda frames so I'll have no tearing. A 5700xt would increase my framerate but I'll be limited still by my refresh rate? Is that what you're saying?

 

Thanks

I mean, again, if you only play Siege and Apex the 2060 would be just as good, but in other more demanding titles you'll notice the difference between the 2060 and 5700XT (which is very close to a 2070 Super in terms of raw performance).

 

I'd suggest checking out some benchmarks online before you make your call. Hardware Unboxed, Gamers Nexus, Guru3D, Tom's Hardware, Anandtech, Techpowerup, and more - all of these should offer reliable and insightful benchmarks on either of these GPUs.

Okay, so one more absolute doofus question here.

If I bought the 2060 would I be able to sell it when I have a bit more disposable cash in say a year and put howevermuch extra it costs to buy a 5700XT in with the money I get from selling the 2060. Because as of now I really won't be playing anything else. Maybe the odd game of fortnite every now and again but I hear that's not very demanding whatsoever on PC.

 

Is it even possible to sell graphics cards for some silly technological reason? Tell me :)

I'm not sure what you'll be able to get for it a year from now, but graphics cards are quite commonly found on the used market, so yeah you should be able to sell it.

By that time though, Ampere and RDNA2 GPUs from Nvidia and AMD respectively will already have been out for a while, so the 5700XT might not be the best choice to go for at that point.

But surely by then, games won't have drastically increased their hardware requirements to get the same numbers either?

Bruv I'm not aiming at the upper end of the market if that hasn't already been established. I couldn't give a flyin' fuck about RDNA2
