Somewhat depends on the price of these cards and your budget. I'd prefer the 3050, because it's a newer card, so its drivers should receive updates for longer. The A750 may be attractive price wise, but there might be scenarios where its driver isn't mature enough yet.

Of course these cards are very low-end, so realistically I'd try to scrape together a bit more money for something faster.

@Eigenvektor聽Unfortunately I can't scrape together more money for something faster as it will be bottlenecked by the rest of my computer. Not to mention that my gaming needs or at least the professional workflow does not require things such as the 3060 or even the 3080. Sure I'd love to have it but yeah it's way to expensive over here.

I was gonna suggest the RX 6600 Core at 200USD, but since OP wants to use the card for some productivity apps, then perhaps an nVidia card would be better. One thing's for sure, the RX 6600 is on average, 29% faster at 1080P, 23% faster at 1440P, according to TPU.

Don't get so hung up on this or that bottlenecking performance, get the best at whatever price range that's within your budget, I find it laughable that some are limiting their purchase choices simply because of their pursuit of the much vaunted 'balanced' system. It's an illusion, just buy whatever that's best that you can afford.

Put it this way, if you can afford an RTX 3060 now, or an RX 6700 XT, just get it. Next time, when you have the budget for a new system, the card can still be re-used. But IF you were to get a lower end card that is a 'balance' with your system now, next time when you upgrade, you're gonna feel the GPU's holding you back.

I have this philosophy with hardware purchases, my PSUs are always, ALWAYS, overpowered. When I built my R9 3900X + VEGA64 rig some 3 odd years back, I knew an 850W PSU would be sufficient for that CPU and perhaps an RX 6900XT/6950XT (this was even before they were released, so I decided on a Corsair HX1000 Platinum PSU. It saw me thru an RX 6900 XT upgrade, and is now powering my 5900X + RX 7900 XTX system.

Thanks for this heads up! Leaving the bottleneck factor aside I really don't have that much money to buy the 3060 rn
