What Graphics Card Should I Choose?

Hi, the PC in the attached picture is a Ryzen 3 3200G system on a MSI A320M-A Pro M2 motherboard with 16 gigabytes of dual channel 2666 MHz ram, and a 256 GB SSD.

Can someone give me a recommendation for a cheap used graphics card? Thanks!

Something like a 1660 or 5700XT, plenty of power for such a CPU, and maybe your next one, cost around $120

And pls get a hand blower and clean the PC, it's disgustingly dirty 馃槢

How cheap? Budget can impact this choice a lot.

As far as a decent pairing, id just go with the default cheap used graphics card, a GTX 1080. Usually can be had around $120, holds up between the RX 6600 and 6600 XT

idk what the budget is but a decent used gpu is the rx 590. Usually sub $100. If you have a little more the 5600xt/5700/5700xt/1070/1070ti/1080 usually range from $130 to sub $200.

I'm thinking a Asus Rog Strix 1060, with a 3 fan cooler, I think I can overclock that pretty high without getting dangerous temps, and from what I've measured it will fit, if not I can go with a dual fan 1060, search for a 980 Ti, 1660 Super or 1070.

My budget is $90 to $115

At first I was looking at RX 570/580, but I saw on the internet that they're about the 1060 level of performance.

I've had some thoughts and ended up going with the Asus Rog Strix GTX 1070, I'll post a follow up on my pc when I get my mittens on the boy.
Also, I've failed to secure a can of air to dust my PC, I'll see if I can find a small brush to painstakingly go through my pc and clean every little crevace.
