Solved

Thinking about getting a new gpu but need some help

My specs
Windows 10
Evga 660 gtx 2gb
Amd A8-6500 APU 3.5ghz quad core
8gb ram
and i have a 630w power supply.

I can play most things fine on medium settings, but some games im only getting 30 frames on average on the lowest possible settings (even turned off shadows and stuff in the files).

Ive been looking at getting the gtx 1060 3gb because it has a high benchmark on pass mark.

I know my cpu is not very good but i feel like a better graphics card will solve most of my problems and let me get 60 fps on medium for newer games.

I also want to stay under 300 and closer to 200 for price.

thanks in advance!

Also if I do get a 1060 6gb should I wait for it to go down some? Or will I be waiting till like November

  1. You should do alright with a 1060, maybe better than you think. Your CPU will hold it back somewhat but it sounds like you are prepared for that. Your PSU wattage is more than enough.

    If you can swing the few extra bucks you should get the 6GB card over the 3GB version

    gtx 1050 ti is about max your setup can handle

    any more gpu power requires a complete system rebuild
