    Question RX 590 at 229€

    Hi, I saw that there's an offer now for the rx 590 at 229€ plus 3 games. I would like to build a PC right now to play 1080/60fps and upgrade the system in a year or two cause the PC I have is really old. Is that card worth it? If it is, could you suggest a whole build? Thanks

    Question What video card should I choose the next time I upgrade? An nvidia(gtx 1660ti) card or an amd card(rx 580/590) for the freesync feature?

    I've also heard about that some monitors freesync feature does work with nvidia cards, but mine isn't featured in the compatible list(vg245h). So my question is what would be the better choice and why?

    Question Does the AMD FX-6300 bottleneck my 1060 6GB? Massive FPS drops

    Hi, currently when playing games I have constant drops in FPS and it's big drops. I usually start off in a game about 170fps and then after a game or two it will dip down to 40-100 fps.
