So looking at building a computer for my daughter but GPU is where I am coming up with a blank. She wants to play Fortnite on it. I don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for one. Any one have suggestions on to what card would be the best.

What CPU do you have? Fortnite isn't exactly an intensive game. Honestly, depending on the CPU, anything from a GTX 1080ti to an RTX 2060 will work with Fortnite.

1080ti is ULTIMATE overkill. You could get 240 fps on med-high settings with a rx570 or 240fps on high-ultra with a 5700xt. And amd gpus typically have a lot more stock rn which leads to a lot more reasonable pricing.

You will pay an arm and leg if you buy it now. Anything over $100 is increased to at least 50% more.

Fornite is not a demanding games, this are the list of what you might want to buy:

GTX1050ti

GTX1650, 1660 super.

RX560, 570 and 580.

RX5500

All those cards are capable of doing fortnite at 60fps minimum, which is enough.

I suggest getting it USED, compare them with their regular price (before inflation).

Ryzen 3600 @ 4.5ghz all cores | Asrock B550M Steel Legend | Radeon RX580 | 2x Samsung 16gb c-die 2666 @ 3600mhz cl16 | 500gb WD SN750 | 9 TB HDD | Deepcool Gammax 400 w/ 2 delta 4000rpm push pull | Antec Neo Eco Zen 500w

Definitely buy used, depends on resolution a lower side 1000 series Nvidia or the RX570/580 cards are more than enough. 

Surely, it is a LAN issue?

Because 1080ti is both considerably faster and more expensive than a 5700xt lol.

they are basically equal to each other lol. the 1080 ti and 5700xt are really similar gpus. anyway its not worth arguing over lol its just a piece of hardware

Something like a 1050ti or a 1650 would be fine. However, if you wanted to save some more money, you could get a Ryzen 5 3400G or a Ryzen 3 3200G (these are CPUs with integrated graphics - AMD calls them ‘APUs’) With these APUs, you could probably get around 60fps (ish) on low settings on Fortnite (i’m not 100% sure how they would perform in other games).

I hope this helps 🙂

Eh, not that I'm agreeing that a 1080ti is necessary, but I don't think it's faster for the most part. Trade blows most of the time these days.

 

Find yourself something used locally for a reasonable price imo. Secondhand RX 570 should still be close to $150 or less.
