I am currently running a GTX 1050 TI in my PC. I really didn't have any problems with it until I recently bought a 32" monitor. The only game that I have issues with runnig currently is Forza Horizon 4. It lags even with very low graphics. So I am considering buying a new GPU, but I am not sure about which one yet. I am mostly intrested in the GTX 1660 TI 6GB, but I am concerned that I will need to upgrade again within a years time, due to more demanding games to come. Do you think that the GTX 1660 TI will be a good choice or will I still need to upgrade within a year.

Difficult to recommend a GPU without knowing the exact PSU model but even if you had to replace it you could get the 1660 Super which performs fairly close to the 1660 ti for a bit cheaper which allows you to get a good PSU.

Corsair VS Series™ VS550 — 550 Watt Power Supply

I think its this one.

Why would I get the 1660 super when the 1660 ti is within my budget?

I really wouldn't game on a VS PSU as there really not good quality wise and are Corsair's lowest quality unit. The CXM is a much better unit and would safely power the system while gaming.

The performance difference between the 1660S & 1660 ti is very minimal but the price difference is like 40 euros.

I am not really concerned about my PSU ATM, maybe I will look into a better one in the future as it hasn't really given me any problems. The only thing that is affecting me is the graphics because I am using a higher resolution now. Is there something better than the 1660 series that is within my budget?
