What is the resolution of your monitor?

I'm guessing 1080p cuz with the budget of 300£ you wouldn't be able to get 144fps at 1440p.

Sooo I'm an Nvidia fan, so I would go with a GeForce GTX 1660Ti but you can find the radeon RX VEGA 56 for very similar prices and that actually performs a bit better so I actually recommend buying that over the 1660Ti, but that is still only gonna get you around 100-120fps on 1080p max settings in most games if you really need at least 144 fps than you need to find a stronger card that's used.

I think the vega 56 would be a better choice since it fits his budget and the 1080 can only get a 10 fps advantage at most, so i don't think it's worth the 35£ premium

I just had a very very bad incident with my vega 64, plus I fold and really need that green team goodness. I do have a AMD CPU though.

What kind of incident?

Anyway you having an issue with a specific gpu doesn't mean that a nother model from the same manufacturer will have a problem and I'm saying this while also being an nvidia fan, but in this case buying and AMD gpu is actually more worth it. (I have an rtx 2060 in my build)

What do you mean fold?

Folding at home my friend

 

 

The card blew up and took my system with it, running at stock settings. 

 

P.S. I just think the 1080 is a better buy than the vega 56.

 

BUT, the VEGA 64 is only 310 so that is most certainly the best buy here, you can get vega 56s for 230. all with 2 years warranty too from CEX.

ok, thanks! just wondering, will the gpu be able to get over 60fps the majority of the time?

5700XT? Easy! Should come close to 144 on tweaked settings I’d say - believe I read somewhere it’s basically on par/ +5/10% with a 2080

I'd say get a gtx 1080... I got mine for 280£ on the facebook marketplace a few months ago.. 

They are between 280£ and 330£.. See what you can find locally! 

CEX is a good idea, but you won't know what card you are getting... so maybe visit a few and pick out the best aftermarket card locally! 

 

If you go for marketplace, make sure the guy (or gal) is willing to show you the card working before handing over the cash!

1080 blows away anything at the 300£ pricepoint.. 

Just stay away from the hydro versions (AIO) and the blower cards!

Why buy a used 1080 if we have a 5700xt nowadays. Better getting that warranty I’d say
