Hello

My Nvidia GTX 970 is almost 8 years old. It's still handling online games (like apex legends) with ease, but it's having difficulties with modern single player games. For example Deathloop- it doesn't even reach minimum GPU requirement.
Can you recommend me an Nvidia GPU for 250-400€ (270-430$)?

My specs: (Every component is from 2014 so i'm not sure how long something will last.

*OS - Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
*CPU - Intel Core i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz
*RAM - 16.0GB
*Motherboard - ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. Z97-A (SOCKET 1150)
*Monitor - S24C350 (1920x1080@60Hz)
*GPU - 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (MSI)
*Storage - 111GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120G SCSI Disk Device (SSD)
1863GB Seagate ST2000DM 001-1ER164 SCSI Disk Device (SATA)

RX6600 should be doable. RTX3050 as well.

Would really need a country to give a direct recommendation.

Seeing 400€ for the RX6600 and RTX3050 in most of Europe, so those would the ideal choices. RX6600 is the faster card for just gaming. RTX3050 does have some cool features, but the ray tracing performance isn't anything to write home about.

PSU details and chassis size are the only remaining questions, but GTX970 in the standard 10.5" card covers most variants of those cards. If you have a Mini GTX970, just look for the shorter cards.
