Next Gen $300-400 GPU's

Hi, 

I am planning a new next Gen Gaming pc setup for around £1400 including peripherals so I am looking at GPU's in the $300-400 range. Obviously the Radeon announcement earlier today did not include their offering in this price range so I am assuming Nvidia won't be releasing anything else soon as what amd just launched is competing with what Nvidia has already launched. When do you think we are likely to see a next Gen card in this price range eg. RTX 3060/3060ti or RX 5700/5700XT.

you could almost fit an RX 6800 in your PC

maybe expand your budget slightly and you will be able to enjoy the cards that were just announced

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 like to go cheap with keyboard and mouse personally but if you want to free up budget and are willing shrink the case real estate you can go with this:

I'm going to try to get the 6800 but not sure on pricing in the UK yet. I'm assuming it's going to be around £550. Considering that with a cheapish but still decent keyboard and mouse I probably have around £1000 for the PC that may be a little tight as that is only £450 at most for everything else. Also, I'm assuming Ryzen 3000 prices are going to drop soon due to Ryzen 5000. Is that correct?

they typically do, this generation could be different because the new processors are launching at a higher price so we will see.

Since I would have to have only 500gb of storage and go with cheaper components for everything, maybe it would be worth waiting for the 3060ti or 5700xt? as I will only be building after Christmas anyway. I have seen leaks that show the 3060ti performance being similar to a 2080 super which should be pretty adequate at that budget and would give me £180 extra based on the pricing of the other Nvidia cards.

If going for RDNA2, then you should at least be recommending a Ryzen 5000 to go with it. (the performance boost will definitely be felt)

Unless I wait for a cheaper rdna2 card there's no way I could afford rdna2 and ryzen 5000

With a $1400 budget, you can afford it though. Just have to be a little more frugal with the other components. For example, you can save $40 on the monitor by going with this instead of the previous recommendation: https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16824569005?Item=N82E16824569005

Or, if you're willing to drop down to 1080p, you can save $110: https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16824475002?Item=N82E16824475002

I don't see the point in getting a graphics card like that and then using it at 1080p 144hz. I think I will just wait for a 3060ti or 6700 as that will still provide plenty of power for 1440p and unless they come out much later than expected I won't be buying before that anyway. I can then also get the amount of storage and slightly higher quality components that I would like, as otherwise I will just end up buying all that later and spending an extra few hundred that I don't need to.

only another $50 to opt for 1TB of SSD storage if you were to go with the cheaper list it would work fine. A 1TB SSD is a good call for set and forget these days.

I will mess around with some configs tomorrow as it would be great to get a card like that but equally I'd like it to look decent and be easy-ish to build in
