Best GPU for the i7 2600k?

Hi, I just got this PC for free. It has an i7 2600k with 16GB. I'm thinking of just putting an SSD and a GPU into it since I don't have enough money to spend on an entire computer.

So, I was just wondering what would be the best GPU for the i7 2600k. I'm thinking of an RX 570. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks :)

RX 480, 570, 580, 590, RX 5600 XT, GTX 1650 Super, 1650 Ti, 1660 Super, 1660 Ti, 1070, 1070 Ti are all appropriate GPU territory. 

 

Make sure you put a decent overclock on the 2600k though, around 4.2GHz - 4.8GHz.

Depends. If you play at 1080p overclock the cpu and get used rx 570/580 or used 1060/1070. or new 5600XT. Though 5600XT is the max i would get for that  cpu

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)
