What’s your favorite high performance video card for PC gaming for between $250-$300?

    I prefer AMD cards. That said, I have an Asus Nvidia GTX 1070. It's not a bad card, but when the Radeon 3080 comes out, I'm going back to AMD. That, and their stock price is doing well, so my stock portfolio isn't looking too shabby.

    AMD RX 570 or 580
    They are great.

    Rx580. Is there any other contestant?

    +1 for the RX580, best bang for your buck

    @irene I mean... Even an RTX 2060 costs more than €350 so... Nothing from NVIDIA in this bracket.

    @Jilano what about 1660?

    Rx560 up to rx580. Beasts even 560 is a fucking beast. And when you over clock the shit out of it then the fun begins.

    @irene The GTX 1660 seems to be +5% faster on average when compared to a RX 590 (source: https://techspot.com/review/...)

    High performance? For $300?

    I have another one,

    What's your favourite super car for $9000?

    @RustyCookie to be interpreted as “high performance in its cost class”. Obviously I’m not like “Yeah, I want a Ferrari but I only have money for a Yugo.”

    An amazing deal on an RTX 2080 ti

    More seriously: an RTX 2060. I've always been a fan of nVidia because their cards and drivers have always been better. (Linux support not so much, sadly.) But regardless, I'd recommend the 2060. It's a good card, and not too expensive. Might be a little out of your budget, though; I haven't checked prices in awhile.

    @Root why 2060 instead of 1660? 🤔 It cannot into raytracing anyway.

    @Root hmm good point about Linux. At some point I may convert the box from Win to Linux. It’d suck to have to replace the card for that reason.

    @stackodev I've personally never had problems with nVidia drivers on linux, but I know a lot of people have.

    If you use older drivers that are known to work, you won't have issues. Debian mentality 😋

    @Root Every time I’ve tried switching to Linux with nVidia devices, no drivers existed for my particular device. If I got nVidia, I’d be dang sure it has supported Linux drivers. :)

    @irene Fair point. It's not powerful enough to actually use raytracing effectively. But it is enough for raytracing on low/medium and that's worth it imo.

    @Root raytracing right now is overrated.

    @irene Mostly. But it does look very nice in some games like Tomb Raider. Newer titles are going to look substantially better than that, too. Likely titles starting this year. Still worthwhile imo!

    @Root well, yes, they will look better but there's no decent hardware yet. The RTX cards are mostly "proof of concept" rather than a decent product.

    @irene Absolutely. ... As are the games!
