HI.
I'm building a new PC with a Ryzen 5 3600, 16gb RAM(About AR$ 60.000 - U$D 629,40) but I need a Graphics Card for this .
I was wondering witch option shoud I buy considering it will be mostly used for desktop usage (Web, Coding, VMs) with an 1080p monitor and rarely for 4k video playback in a 4k 50" TV.
I was thinkin in the new ASUS GT1030 2gb GDDR5 (About AR$ 30.000 - U$D 314,70) or an MSI GT730 2gb ddr3 (About AR$ 20.000 - U$D 209,80) I dont't know if there's another suitable option, cuz i'm really confused in the graphics card world right now.

Thanks!
 
GT730 doesn't support 4k. Max supported resolution is 2560 x 1600 @60Hz.
And GT 1030 is ~$100 USD card. Definitely not worth $300 USD.

If you have to pay such crazy prices for GPU, then better get Ryzen 5 3400G instead. It has integrated GPU (performance level similar to GT 1030).

Thats what I wanted originally buts there's no stock actually for the 3400g in Argentina and vídeo cards are really overpriced cause there's not much stock either

Maybe you could expand your search to any recent CPU - Zen 2, Zen 3, 10th/11th gen Core - with integrated GPU. Most of those are sufficient as far as video playback went AFAIK.

Hi,
the cheapest 4k graphics card list is the power-packed NVIDIA GeForce low profile graphics card. It features a GT 710 processor which is the backbone of any graphics card. It supports 2x Display monitors and can work with a maximum resolution of 4096×2160.

If you also need it for 4K resolution, I’d recommend a GTX 1050 Ti (4GB GDDR5).
I wouldn’t go lower than that, but I’d buy it used.
