What GPU to pair the Ryzen 3 1300X with?

Hi,

I am looking to build a rather silent budget gaming PC for casually playing CS:GO from time to time.
The Ryzen 3 1300X looks like a good "Bang for the Buck" deal to me but I am not sure with which Graphics Card to pair it with in order to have a balanced system.

Can you help me out? Or would you say a Ryzen 5 1500x is the better deal for the money?

Thanks

What resolution will you be gaming on?

But considering 'budget' build I would suggest the RX 560, that is probably the best bang for buck budget card. If you can, try getting a 1024sp version because there is also a version with 896sp which is obviously not as good.

Secondary: AMD Athlon 4000+ > AMD Athlon X2 3800+ > AMD Phenom II 940 > Pentium G3258 > AMD A10 6800K

I will be gaming on 1920 x 1080p

The RX560 looses against the 1050 Ti though and they are the same price right now in germany.

Ok well if they are the same price the 1050 Ti obviously is the better choice. Over here the cheapest RX 560 is €119 en the cheapest 1050 Ti is €159.

buy the best you can afford - you won't see any bottlenecking until you get to a 1070ti and above.

I would look at an AMD GPU and Free-sync first and foremost, especially if you are going to stick with a low tier GPU that might not be able to maintain a steady 60fps at 1080p. If you don't have and are not looking to get a Free-sync monitor then get whatever card is more affordable.

With Frees-ync RX 560 > 1050ti

No Free-sync RX 560 < 1050ti

Free-sync on the RX 560 from my experience is that good, and I would look for a new monitor that supports Free-sync.

Then there was an issue where NV ran worse on Ryzen than it did on Intel, I have no idea if this issue has been resolved.


CPU: R7 1700 Memory: Patriot Viper 4 @3200mhz Video Card: Red Devil RX 580 8GB Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty B350 ITX
SSD:
Crucial MX300 275GB SSD: Samsung 860 Evo 500GB Case: Silverstone SG13
Monitor: 24" AOC 1080p 144hz VA (AOC C24G1)

So. If anyone might wonder. I decided to stack up my budget a little bit and go with a Ryzen 5 1500X, cause I found a good deal.
However, I still went with a 1050 Ti since GPU prices are above the moon right now, thanks to the miners. I might upgrade in a year or so, once prices hopefully come down a little.

Surely the 1050 Ti is the bottleneck now, but it is the best i can/ want to afford right now.

Talking

With the R3 1300X, don't go beyond the GTX 1060 or RX 580.
Btw, there's no bottleneck using the R3 1300X + 1050ti
