What GPU

ian_1986

As title really looking to game at 1440p 60hz but cant find what is the best gpu. Not looking to play latest AAA titles well maybe apart from latest resident evil if it comes free with the gpu. 

 

I play mainly factorio, cities skylines, transport fever, 2 point hospital, planet coaster etc.

 

Will probably be using it with a 2600/2600x

 

Undecided between RX580/590 1660TI, 1060, or even vega 56 while its on offer with 3 free games.

 

Looking to spend up to max £300 on gpu. I don't want to buy a used one.

On AMD, the RX580 is nice, and the 1660ti and 2060 are nice. wouldn't do the 1060 as the prices have skyrocketed because of demand for the P106 and also the fact that it is sorta old now

I’d say either an 8GB 580 or a Vega 56. Very strong cards but the Vega would probably suite you better I think at 1440p. Then again those games aren’t very graphically demanding. 

 

Get the 580 if you’re on a budget, get the Vega if you got the cash.

Yes it was the 8gb i was looking at.

 

I have considered the 2060 although they are generally £50 more than i wanted to spend 

 

They all seem pretty much about the same with each other when looking at benchmarks but the games i play are never tested ha.

Then I would definitely go RX580 or 1660ti. Up to you

Depending on where/how you buy your parts, if you're wanting all 3 games. Ryzen 5/7 comes with Division 2 and RX 580/570 is a pick 2 of 3 so should be as easy as picking the two that aren't Division 2.
