Whats the best bang for the buck in GPU's these days?

Go to solution Solved by Action_Johnson,

New? Easy: For about $200, a 1660 Super can do it all at 1080p. It can even run most stuff at 1440p, but starts to sweat. 
 

Used? 1080Ti. 

Whats the best value GPU these days from brand spanking new to used deals.

 

Thanks

AMD holds the ultimate bang for buck, a used RX 470 or 570. Consistently the best value for your dollar at around $75 USD, shipped.

 

they still have better value in the used space for the time being, but since we're on the cusp of a new release, it's best to wat to make a final judgement on that for the time being.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I can spend $1000 if I wanted, but no I just want the best value, the best bang for the buck whatever that may be in the used and new category. I'd then see the price difference between the two for my area and choose accordingly. In general, whatever games are popular doesnt matter, just the average best value for the times.

You can't say only that, it varies depending on what is your priority. 

 

Amd gpus pretty cheap, good fps but no quality, 

Nvidia gpus expensive, good fps but quality. 

Then you say cheap nvidia but good fps as amd, it doesn't exist. 

There is no gpu with everything at 50%

fps, quality, price. 

So gpu at everything good doesn't exist. 

All gpus have they bounces at good and bad. 

There is no overall good gpu, even approximately overall. 

 

So you must know what you want. 

 

I recommend you to get rtx 3080.

 

It's overall for itself, you can't compete it with nothing on market. 

 

So you get it.

Except in a few days AMD is announcing the RX 6000 series so that will change. Fresh competition and a new meaning for current market value.

wait until the big navi announcement to make any final decisions, even older cards will likely drop in price shortly after it gets released.

For AMD: I would say most if not the entire RX 500 lineup. RX 570 onwards at least. Or a 5600 XT/5700 for Navi. 

For NVIDIA: GTX goes to 1660 Super while RTX the 2060 probably. A used GTX 1070/1080 or 970 works as well.

 

Those are my suggestions though.

Personal PC:

AMD Ryzen 5 3500X | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super (Palit StormX 6GB) | G.SKILL Trident Z RGB 16GB DDR4-3200 (2x8GB) | Gigabyte B450M-DS3H | Samsung 970 EVO Plus 250GB SSD (OS Drive) / TeamGroup L3 EVO 120GB SSD / Western Digital Blue (2019) 1TB HDD 7200RPM | Corsair CX550M (2015) 550W 80+ Bronze | ASUS VL249HE 24" | SilverTec PowerPlus 650VA UPS w/LED 

 

Secondary (sibling's build):

Intel Core i5-6400 | AMD Radeon RX 570 (Gigabyte Gaming OC 4GB)HyperX 16GB DDR4-2666 (1x16GB) | ASUS H110M-K | Western Digital Blue 3D NAND 250GB SSD (OS Drive) / Seagate Barracuda (2017) 1TB HDD 5900 RPM | Silverstone Strider Essential Bronze 500W 80+ White | AOC 24B1XH 24"

Well for 3 to 12$ you can find used 8800gt on eBay and this is most likely the real best bang for your buck but I doubt it's what you want//need you would have to be more specific on screen resolution, games you plan to play etc...basically performance.level you're expecting...
