Hi, I'm currently running a Ryzen 5 3600 with a 1060 6gb. I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card to something in the $300-$400 USD range. What cards should I be looking at?

5700XT or 2060 Super.

I'd advise you wait though for Nvidia's Ampere and AMD's RDNA2 cards to come out later this year, as you'll likely be getting a good bit more for your money then.

Is there a good chance a new card in that price range will come out? I thought these releases were mostly very high end

Well we don't have any confirmed info yet on that so I can't really comment on that.

If we're to go by track record, when Turing released the cheapest option was the 2070 at $499, and when RDNA/Navi released the cheapest option was the 5700 at $349, so maybe AMD will offer the more budget friendly option, again? Can't say for sure.

Hm interesting, it'll probably be worth the wait even for the second hand market to be flooded with used cards from people upgrading

Very likely that they will. They said multiple times RDNA2 will provide option for all the stack. If you aren't in a hurry, you'd definitely better off waiting a bit and evaluating RDNA2/Ampere GPUs.

I think I'll definitely be waiting. Is there any info on when these releases will be?

All we've got is leaks that says "before 2021", pretty much it. Another RDNA2 info is that it's in PS5 and Xbox series X and these two should come in this summer. Desktop cards wont be that far behind unless AMD decides otherwise.

Pretty sure those are scheduled to release in Q4 this year, not in the summer. It's been sort of confirmed though that RDNA2 will first be coming to desktop, so probably late Q3, along with Ampere.

Before PS5/XBX next launch, which is Holiday 2020. So most likely around Sept/Oct this year I guess, maybe November at worst.
