Is There Any Good GPU's for $650 for 1080p or Is 1660 It?

Can't stretch, $650 is it. Just get a 1660 or anything else under the radar I don't know of that is better?

  • For 1080p only? Get a used gtx970 for like $200

    • Will it handle even newer games? Say I wanted to do RDR2, in 1080p.

    Please don't get a 1660 Ti or Super. I decided to upgrade a few weeks ago to a RX 6600 XT (brand new $849) and I managed to sell my USED 1660 Super on Ebay for over $750. Crazy….

    If you can't stretch to $849 for a RX 6600 XT, go for the RX 6600 model. It still blows the pants off the 1660 Ti in pretty much all games at 1080p, including RDR2 by a SIGNIFICANT amount - see here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y81uq20AYQg

    RX 6600 - $699 In stock https://www.pccasegear.com/products/55727/powercolor-radeon-...

    Just pay the extra $50 - I know your budget is tight but you'd be getting a significantly inferior card if you went the 1660Ti not to mention, a much older generation. You'll upgrade sooner and end up losing money in the long run. When the GPU shortage ends, GTX 1660 cards will be quite old and undesirable.

    I'd hunt around for a second hand 2060 at that price, but really if you're going 1080p then save your money, buy something low cost (1060 or something).

    Actually, I'd buy an xbox series s at that price for 1080p gaming, considering it's targeted at 1440p gaming.

      Yeah I'd honestly buy a GTX 1060 or RX 590 or whatever old second hand card, game happily at 1080p 60 for 6 more months, and wait until a less-insane time.

        GTX 1060 6GB is probably the best option for 1080p 60fps. Can probably be had $350 to $400
        I'd avoid the 3GB version unless significantly cheaper

    Ugghh everytime I see a GPU post, just makes me so angry. I put a 1660Ti in my partners PC for like $320. Prices are just so ridiculous.

      Now is the time to sell it for $700. Then buy back later when prices drop.

  • 6600

  • Do you have reliable or fast nbn broadband? Could try xbox cloud gaming, it comes with Xbox game pass

    The first month is only $1.

    I'm not sure about the prices but used RTX2060's are going for $500 on marketplace and gumtree, nothing that new thermal paste and a blast of compressed air can't get up and running.

    • That's not too bad really. Really pretty close to what they were going for before the GPU price apocolypse came.

    • Can you please link these marketplace listings? I just browsed good and nada.
      Same for Gumtree.

      • Depends where you are
        Here in perth gtx 980's are going for $100 - $150
        Rtx 2060's and 1080's around $500-$600 sometimes less

  • I sold my old 1070 for $500 like two weeks ago. Something like that would be fine for 1080p
