Best GPU for this build

Callum1808
 Share

Hello so around Christmas I will be building a new pc which will be for 1080p gaming:

 

B450 Tomahawk

 

Ryzen 2600 (I have a Corsair h50 so I can overclock but I know I need an am4 bracket)

 

Corsair vengeance 2x8GB DDR4 3000Mhz

 

I will be re using SSD with windows 10 and HDD 

 

EVGA 650W G2 Supernova

 

Re-using antec 900 case

 

So yeah I will be using a GTX 680 from previous build until I can get a better gpu but I’m not sure what would be best. I don’t want to spend loads just try to keep it under £350 but if I have to I can spend more. So any suggestions on a graphics card would be great.

 

PS

I have a 1080p 60Hz monitor 

I am not bothered whether it is AMD gpu or nvidia as I have never had AMD and I’ve only ever had one nvidia (the 680) but I don’t understand the different AMD branding like sapphire etc

1070 is a good GPU for this build. In Australia here, we can find them used for under $300 USD.

Is a used GPU really worth the risk considering the mining and everything?

well its the risk of going second hand vs saving money.

 

plus after looking at amazon an extra £50 will get you to a 1070/ti

I really doubt a 1070 or 1060 (the roi would be shitty) was used for mining but that is the trade off you take for a better price, its up to you, I always buy new but that is just me.

1060 would be good but if you can get a nice price on 1070/+  get that. And if you are buying a second hand gpu make sure it was not used for mining

How can I make sure as there are a lot of deals on eBay but if they say they haven’t been used for mining is that definite ?

For GPU's, I'll always buy it new. CPU on the other, I don't know.

 

Don't take the risk to buy a GPU second hand, or you may end up with a GPU that's been used for mining big time. Use your 680 for now untill you found a good deal to buy a new GPU. I got my 1080Ti for €680 and that was just at the right moment! Since it got out of stock, the rest of the 1080Ti's still are €800 up to €1060. Avoid used GPU's like the pest.

Even if the card was used for mining, it's not a HUGE deal. It's not like the card won't work.

No, there is a good chance they are just nothing but lying snakes. Aren't there hardware webstores in your country? eBay is not the only way to go, right?

for 1080p@60 i think a 1060 6gb or a rx580. You don't need to spend more money, even with those gpu's you will be at high or ultra and limited by the 60hz monitor

Mining cards make excellent gaming cards. There's not much reason to get a 1070 for 1080p 60hz though, I would get an RX 580 instead.

 

You'll be fine with the Ryzen stock cooler as well, I have no problems with my 1600 at 3.8Ghz.

Fair enough.

 

The 2600's stock cooler is plenty good enough, even when overclocking. Depending on silicon lottery and motherboard, you won't have any problems even at a 4Ghz overclock.

And I really don’t know I like the idea of a cheap but good GPU that will last a good while but I want to make sure it will last a while so I’m very undecided at the moment

The 1070 won't be obsolete for a good long while.

 

I still play games with a GTX 780 for reference, that card is 5 years old. Everything runs at 1080p Medium settings with no problems, and I even play at 75Hz.

Ok will keep that in mind I will have a look which I will use as I already have a water cooler h50 so I could either sell that or use it and sell the stock one(if it sells)

I'd stick with the stock cooler personally. It comes with the CPU and doesn't require any other mounting brackets. You should be able to sell the H50 as long as you sell it for a decent price.

Yeah my 680 still runs quite well so I’m going to use that up until January ish as I already have MB and Ram but waiting to see if Black Friday has any affect on cpu price. Also do you think the gpu prices will have dropped at all by January ?

Most likely.

 

If you live in the United States near a Micro Center, buy your CPU and motherboard there. You'll save $30 on your motherboard with their bundle deal.

Nah I live in the UK the prices are slightly higher here as 2600 is around £150-160 if I’m lucky. I got the Motherboard already for fairly cheap and the ram too so waiting to snatch the cpu. Btw do I need to put thermal paste on when putting the stock cooler on or does it already have thermal paste on it ?( first pc build so I’m a noob atm )

Stock cooler has thermal paste pre-applied, you'll be fine.

IF the GTX1070 is above your budget, then an RX580 would do just fine, and with AMD 'Fine wine' tech, who knows, the RX580 may clearly out perform the GTX1060. The recent driver update (Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.10.1) has new Vulkan extensions and WDDM 2.5 support which seemed to have improved performance for all Radeon cards from the RX550 to VEGA....at least, that's my impression from the guru3d thread.
