Just a quick question.

Never rely on a brand. Ever. Deal with specific cards only. There are no brands that have never messed up a GPU.

Thoughts on the Galax 1650 Super EX 1-Click OC 4gb GDDR6. I'm gonna build a pc and only the Galax 1650 Super is available here at my local store. There is MSI but its single fan I want 2 fans.

Budget? Intended use for the system? (gaming, video editing, streaming, etc.) The rest of the system specs?

 

At this point in time, I highly recommend against getting any GPU with less than 8GB of VRAM.

My budget is $600 and I can't fit a 1660 super in it. Mostly for gaming. And a little bit of streaming I guess not sure.

 

CPU                              -       Ryzen 3 3100

MOTHERBOARD         -        Gigabyte B450 DS3H            

GPU                              -      1650 SUPER    (Galax?)   

RAM                             -       PATRIOT VIPER 2X8 3200mhz

PSU                              -        CORSAIR CX550M 80+ BRONZE/

STORAGE                    -        KINGSTON 480GB M.2 (Still looking for an alternative)

CASE                            -       Still deciding.

 

PS:

This already exceeds $600.

I would look into getting a used RX 580. It should be a significantly lower price than a new 1650 Super with similar performance, and twice the VRAM.

Does a single fan and a 2 fan GPU have a big difference?

I was also asking because I don't see anyone build a PC with a Galax card.

 

Edit: 

Just to make sure you know.

Yeah, one has more fans.🤪

 

Seriously, the dual fan one will likely run cooler and quieter, but there are outliers that have the opposite effect.

It's a region specific card IIRC. Not available in most of the countries that generate reviews.

 Can those GPU's with like those (Heat Pipes?) run cooler than without?

 

Oh, that's why they're so underrated.

It depends on the card and the cooler. Heat pipes aren't the be-all-end-all of cooling.

Maybe. I wouldn't know for sure.

for 600 dollars budget look used gpus. rx 580, rx 590

gtx 1070 could fit your budget if found used. you should buy the ram used too. i usually buy the cpu, ram and gpu used, sometimes mothebroard. ram usually goes at 50-70% of the price when bought used instead of buying new.
