GPU Upgrade for my system
I haven't been active in years as I've been very busy with studies.
I'm running the following system I originally built in 2013.
Since then, I upgraded the HDD to an SSD, and also replaced/upgraded the PSU.
PU: Intel Core i5-2500K (running smoothly at 4.4ghz) under an H60.
GPU: AMD HD 7950
SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250GB
RAM: G.SKILL RipjawsX DDR3 1600 C9 2x4GB (8GB)
MBD: Asus P8P67
PSU: Corsair CX 650 M
Now I started running into issues when I upgraded my monitor to a massive 27" 2560x1440 display.
I realized that it seems that my old graphics card is struggling with games these days.
I mostly play Warzone with friends, CS:GO, and other FPS games.
I did some research and it seems like perhaps one of the following would be the best, i'm just looking for more input from you guys on this, and want to make sure that a new GPU won't be seriously bottle necked by the current system.
1650 Super 4GB
1660 Super 6GB
RX 580 8GB
EDIT: I'll also add 5500XT 8GB as it seems to be the only other contender in this price range.
I'm leaning more towards a 1650 Super because it seems that is by far the best value for performance, it seems that it matches or outperforms the 580 in most games, and i'm not sure I even need the 1660 super for the types of games im playing. I just want to be able to get a stable and playable FPS.
I was also wondering if I should throw in another set of 4x2 ripjaws to bring my ram up to 16GB.
Thoughts? will a 1650 Super be enough? or do you recommend something else.
