I would say get it anyway and see if you can make it work before the return period is up. But it's from NewEgg.Dang it, NewEgg/MSI, where was this deal back in March??!?
I am still tempted, but I think my XPS 8700 probably won't play nicely with current generation cards.
Nah - I'm not even gaming that much, and, when I do, the GTX 1080 is handling it well.I would say get it anyway and see if you can make it work before the return period is up. But it's from NewEgg.
Well, I'm not buying anything, but for anyone even looking at an RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2060, or even a GTX 1660/1660 Super/1660 Ti, I would say they're foolish NOT to get this deal instead.I wouldn't recommend buying a RX 5000 series graphics card at this point. Even if you don't care at all about ray-tracing, it's still a poor deal as the older card might be missing other next-gen techs like DirectStorage.
No, they are not.Old Navi is also missing variable-rate shading. That's good for 20% to 30% boost in FPS. The 1650/1660 Super are better value if you must buy now.
That's a silly way of measuring value. If all you have is a 60hz monitor, then what value do you get from a card that can deliver 100FPS? The proper question to ask is for how long can you use these cards before they're obsolete. The Turing cards will hold up better because they support VRS. Nvidia has also stated that Turing will get DirectStorage support (whether there's decompression hardware in the older chip in a big question, however).EDIT: The equation is very simple:
For a given approximate price bracket - if one card performs X% faster than the other, and costs Y% more money, where 0 ≤ Y < X, then the first card is the better value.
Why would you spend more for performance that you can't actually see? A GTX 1650 Super will be perfectly sufficient for a budget set-up, where you only have a regular monitor. If you buy now, you'll have to upgrade in two years time anyway, as non-RT solution will be completely obsolete by then. Better to save the money for the next upgrade.Yes, that IS a silly way of measuring it - if we were talking about radically different performing cards, which YOU were doing, by bringing in the GTX 1650.
