I mean people tell me that the 1660 super is a very good deal for a budget build, is it really though? or should i buy a 1650 super?

Depends on the budget and what you expect out of performance

So 1080p 60hz?

If so, a 1650 S will do fine.

I wouldnt plan on running 1440p 144hz through either of these cards..

You聽 can play games at a lower res, maybe? But it'll be hard to drive

nahhhh....... i will play games on 1080p if its heavy, although 1660s can easily handle 1440p, and its more for movie watching and stuff, im also a content creator and streamer, so does it matter tho?

also i think i would rather buy this monitor

It handles 1440p at 60 fps *alright*

But in any AAA game I would not expect to see anything near that 144 fps.

That display may be more beneficial for you.

i mean, i saw benchmarks and welp, there is no difference in performance at all, if there is, it will probably be in 1440p, not 1080p, check linus video, "Nvidia, i retract my apology"

ah..... will it be able to reach 144hz on 1080p? or should i save a buck and get a 120hz monitor as that will be more "logical" and monitors can usually have a 25hz overclock anyway... :)

you should get yourself the 1440p 144hz monitor and the 1660s, in AAA titles you can game at about 40-90fps depending on the game but believe me when i say 40fps or more is enough for AAA's and sightseeing games and you can clearly tell the difference between 1080p and 1440p(and also content creation) while the 144hz can help you in esports titles

I mean, if i get a 1080p 120hz monitor, i can easily over clock it upto 144hz, so theres that.... and a 1660S will not be able to handle 1440p in AAA titles, like AC origins or anyother, also the R3 3100 is also not made to run games at 1440p lol聽

The higher the resolution the easier it usually is for the cpu.聽聽

Also check if you have/care about any sync technologies and if oc the monitor disable that.聽 Also I have 1080p 120HZ and sometimes I regret not getting a 1440p instead.聽
