Best GPU for 1080p 60hz monitor ?

I have 500$ budget and need a new GPU to replace my GTX970 but i don't have enough money to go for a new pc included new monitor or just GPU+monitor, so need something to keep my rig going at least a year, is there any good GPU with that price ?

What are the rest of your specs? In my opninion, there's not much better you can do for a 60Hz monitor than a 970 and equavialents. If you have 500 USD, that seems like enough for a new monitor and GPU

AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / iCute Thing / LG 22MK400H-B 1920x1080 @ 75Hz / Dell P2210 1680 x 1050 @ 60Hz / Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury / E-Blue Memcanical Keyboard / Razer Kraken X (RMAing)

for $500 usd, if you cannot wait (for the new gpu's from both amd and nvidia), depending on your current specs, if you need to purchase straight away, going a 2060 or 5700XT would be your best bet (i listed both for if you have a preference, as the 5700xt will peform arguably better but im a nvidia guy so i would go the 2060, but a 970 has a decent amount of performance for 60hz)

 

personally i would wait for the new gpu's and see what you can get a 120+hz monitor for

You can go for a AOC 24G2 (180$), which is a great gaming monitor and still have enough money to buy a 2060 (maybe even 5700XT if you can strech it a bit) or something similar. This will get you going for the next few years. The 5700XT upgrade might be worth it. New GPUs in your pricerange will still be a fair bit away.

 

If you really want to spend it all on a GPU, the 3070 is a good buy. But for 1080p 60Hz it's entirely unnecessary.

Kinda depends on the game. VRAM usage has gotten up so the best upgrade is probably getting something with 8 GB of VRAM.

 

Just as reference, I have an RTX 2060 and it is a overkill in horsepower department for my 1080p 60Hz monitor, but in ROTS the 6GB of VRAM is just barely enough for very high preset. The only games in which FPS can drop below 60FPS I can think of is Jedi Fallen Order (Kashyyyk Refinery Epic Preset), FS2020 (Duh!!), Shadow of Tomb Raider with RTX and  Deliver Us The Moon with RTX but no DLSS.

 

Probably 1070 is a good upgrade and you can probably get it used at a good price since with the RTX 3080 going on sale soon.

If i don't need ray tracing then between 1660S or 1660ti, what should i get ?

You can see hardware unboxed video for GTX 1660 Super but GTX 1660 Super perform only slightly slower than GTX 1660 Ti for 40 USD less MSRP. Though, I wouldn't get either at MSRP right now since with AMPERE GPU launching now. Gettign a used GTX 1070/ GTX 1070 Ti/ GTX 1080 is probably your best bet since quite a numbe of people with GPU will upgrade to RTX 3080. Plus, even though GTX 1070 is roughly perform as good as GTX 1660 Super, 1070 has higher VRAM which may be useful if you planning to keep it longer. I don't see any reason to get the turing card over the pascal unless you don't want buying used or really want Turing NVENC encoding which the only significat upgrading for 1660S over 1070.

It would be necessary if he wants ray tracing.

For 1080p 60Hz with raytracing a 3070 is still overkill. The 3070 is targeting 1440p 144Hz.

Ok I thought the 3080 was optimized for larger resolutions... but I see your point. Perhaps the future 3060 would be the better option. I know the OP has mentioned that ray tracing isn't very important now, but that could very well change with future titles.

Wait for 3070, you'll have enough power for years to come and you won't need to upgrade it again in a year when you upgrade the rest of your PC.

I really wonder what games you're playing that you think low/,mid range GPUs are good enough for 1080/60, in my experience that's a not the case at all. Especially not at max settings...   "Esports" titles maybe?

 

Yes, a 2070 would be a good option maybe, but why do that when the 3xxx series is coming out, and the 2xxx wasn't that good either way (neither performance nor reliability)

Pretty much any GPU like the 1650 Super and higher can easily do 1080p 60fps, even in AAA games.

 

Spending 500$ on a GPU to play at these settings is just not worth it imo. You can save a lot of money by going with something cheaper.

Well as I said in my experience that isn't the case, I can basically play none of my games (with exception of a few VN style indies) at Max settings/60fps and 1650 super is 2% faster than my card (?) so I doubt it'd would make a big difference.

 

The only time these low end cards make sense imo is when someone really doesn't have the budget for something better or primarily plays"Esports" titles which apparently run acceptably even on a potato... (Which admittedly is a huge market but I just wouldn't generalize it like that and having some headroom for the future can't hurt either)

So spend 6-700 for 3070 (i don't think third parties like Giga, Asus,... will sell 3070 the same price as FE version) now and upgrade the rest along the way, sound like a good idea since 500$ is what i want to spend right now not all i have right now

yeah  basically but I would also say wait a few months, looks like Nvidia has something better up their sleeves still - there's always something better coming, sure, but in this case it might be worth waiting a few months and hopefully prices will settle too, though you can't do much wrong with a 3070 right now either if you don't totally need more VRAM
