Hi guys,

Looking to upgrade my current PC, no money for a highend full build. looking for some advise on which graphicscard is my best bet to last me another 2 or 3 years on my current PC. Replacing memory is optional, motherboard is LGA 1366 socket, so new motherboard is not optional, no money for new processor. 6 or 8 GB is probably my best bet, but then there still are tons of choices. Slightly leaning towards NVIDIA over AMD, but you all are probably more up to speed then I am in the current hardware options.

Current setup:
Motherboard: ASUS P6T V2 DeLuxe
Graphicscard: ASUS HD 5870 1 GB
Memory: Corsair DDR 3 1600 2x4GB
Processor: Intel Core I7 920 (first generation)
Powersupply: Corsair HX850W
HD: Intel 80 GB SSD
Case: Coolermaster HAF922
Monitor: iiYama ProLite E2407HDS (1920x1080)

Budget 400 max, but preferably a bit less. Looking for advise on performance (best buy) Tx for your help guys.

Ola!

Last time I bought a graphics card I was still playing Battlefield
Have a look at the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
It's affordable and depending on your requirements good be a good card.

Hey m8, been looking at that card, but the more I looked into it, the more I have come to the conclusion I might be better off replacing mobo, processor, RAM and graphicscard. To keep cost low I would gp for a B450 board, Ryzen 5 2600 and 16 GB DDR4 3000 (64 being the max on that particular mobo I looked at). With an RX580 that would cost me about 500 and a bit, with a 1660TI that would bring me up to around 600. I think I will go for that last option and try and save up some more cash, so I will be set for 2-3 years.
