Hi!

My 1050 unfortunately died. I am looking forward to upgrade it.

Which is the best card which would not be bottlenecked by an it 6500?

depending on budget.

the 1660/1660ti are very good for the price and i doubt you'll be bottlenecked.

Anything i've written between the * and * is not meant to be taken seriously.

keep in mind that helping with problems is hard if you aren't specific and detailed.

i'm also not a professional, (yet) so make sure to personally verify important information as i could be wrong.

RX 570, RX 580, GTX 1660. If higher than 1080p then maybe RTX 2060 or RX Vega 56.

 

How's it going? Atlantis still on Earth? New replicators on the horizon?

I am tempted to get a 2060 super.

 Off: I'm fine. I married Jenifer. No, there are not new replicators. We are working on a project to rescue Elizabeth. ?

2060S? In that case, I'd recommend a dual-fan RX 5700.

But the i5 might be a problem if you play MP games like Battlefield V. Even some other titles require more than 4 threads to run smooth.

 

Off: Any news on the Destiny crew? The info is hard to find. I guess it's classified. XD

Hey man. I have same CPU - i5 6500, 16gb 2666hz RAM and upgraded to GTX1080 two years ago.  I game on 1440p, 144hz monitor.

 

I have to say that I was definitely bottlenecked in some games, especially the likes of Star Craft 2, which is heavy physics based.  There it was noticeably frustrating as you know that your supposed to play smoothly, but frequent frame drops occur on high settings.  

 

So it depends from game to game.  My experiences with more recent games have motivated me to upgrade to 9th gen Motherboard and CPU.

 

My advice:  get the RTX 2070 - you won't experience too much bottlenecking initially and next year you can upgrade your CPU and Motherboard too.

 

Further advice, if you play mainly shooters, stick to 1080p for reaching that 144fps mark and thus 144hz.  Otherwise if you play games where only 60 fps is necessary, you can easily go 1440p with your rig and the RTX2070 - subject to some games giving you some neck..

 

Hope this helps.
