A suitable GPU for AMD A10 5800K?

I'm asking a new gpu for christmas. Does anyone know a gpu that wouldn't bottleneck on my computer? (specs below). Something under 300 €.

My specs:

CPU: AMD A10 5800K 3,8 GHz
Motherboard: ASRock FM2 A75 Pro4-M
GPU: AMD Radeon HD7870 1.2 GHz
RAM: 8 Gb DDR3
PSU: Coolermaster 700W
HDD: 500 Gb
SSD: 112 Gb

  1. 1050 ti is a good match
    or buy 1060 6gb/rx 580 and reuse for future upgrades.

  2. No matter what you drop into that system, GPU wise, your APU will be overwhelmed, or rather underwhelmed. Sticking to the topic, you should look at a GPU that is 3 tiers higher, like the GTX1060 or higher equivalent.

  3. I think your 7870 is about as good as you could want, considering your APU. However, a 1050 Ti would give you more flexibility in gaming, since it has 4gb vram, and it's faster too.

    Depends on the games you play. In videocard dependent games, a new videocard will make a difference. In a CPU dependent game you might not see any real difference at all. One easy way to test this: Run your game at 1080p low settings. Note the framerate. Now leave everything the same except lower resolution to 720p and check the framerate. Did it go up a lot at 720p? If yes, this means a better videocard will help. If it didn't really improve the framerate, this means your APU is already maxed out and a new card won't help.
