Will this be a decent GPU? It would be upgrading a Radeon RX550. Been lagging way too much play Warzone on lowest settings.
ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER Overclocked 4GB Edition HDMI DP DVI Gaming Graphics Card - its $320 on Amazon, does that seem like a scalpers price for this card? Was hoping to stay under $300 buy hey close enough.
 
320 dollars for a GTX 1650 Super? Forget that. That's crazy pricing. That card was 160 dollars a few months ago. Don't buy any GPU right now unless you want to pay double the price. 320 dollars a few months ago was a RTX 2060. Now for 320 dollars you get a 1650 Super. That's is so bad :S

Whats the rest of your system?
Warzone is a battleroyale,and a first person shooter.Way more cpu and ram dependant that Gpu
I am upgrading ram and cpu. Right now I have 8gb (2x4gb) but am either gonna add 2 more 4gb sticks or buy 2 8gb sticks. I really dont know much when it comes to this stuff. Can I run 2 4gb and and 2 8gb (for a total of 24gb) or would I just repalce the 2 4s with the 2 8s if I go that route?

As for CPU I am currently running an AMD Athlon 200GE 3.2GHz Dual-Core. It ran WOW fine but not this. I have narrowed it down to 3 options, unless you can recommend a better one. Im trying to keep CPU under $200. I am looking at either the Ryzen 3 3100 3.6 GHZ Quad-Core, the Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core, or the Ryzen 5 2600 3.4GHz 6-Core.

Thats what I figured, the prices of these things is absolutely ridiculous right now.

these miners gotta be smoking rocks or something, because even low mid tier 1060 3gbs are 500$, lol. i mean maybe the pandemic affected the prices a little, but I would tend to believe its still the coin miners messing up the prices. im still a firm believer that 200$ is too much for a 1060, but supply and demand I guess.

I remember recommending GTX 1660 Super for 239 dollars not long ago.

Oh so you are the guy i spent 15 minutes writing a reply,only for the thread to be delete 30 seconds before i posted.Anyhow i recommended yoi a r5 1600AF and a brand new kit of 2x8gb 3200mhz cl16 corsaor vengeance.Since you habe the maximum chance of it workimg that way,and the r5 1600af will accept those speeds.
Also you asked a question,if i remember correctly you asked if you can use both the new,and the old 2x4gb kit,and i said no,since its very likely that the old one isnt going to accept it.

1600/2600 is fine upgrade around 200$, you can use the two 8gb and two 4gb together yea, but you need to pair them correctly, meaning the two 8gb should be in the specified channels per the motherboard manual (if i recall the thread was b450 pro4 motherboard?), if thats the case it would be two 8gb in a2/b2, and then the two 4gb in a1/b1. If you get a higher frequency set of ram for the new 8gb sticks, it could be potentially downclocked to the lowest timing of your other two 4gb sticks, so its probably ideal to get the same frequency ram, and if possible same manufacturer, although this is not necessary. I've mixed different brand/frequency ram without issues, aside from the lowest frequency underclock i mentioned.

if you are running two 4gb-2400 mhz ram for example, you will set two 8gb 2400 mhz ram into priority channels, where your current ram sticks should be, then the old two 4gb-2400 mhz sticks into the alternate channels.

I dont think that was me, but I appreciate the advice.

I went with 2x8gb 3200MHz and removed the other 2 sticks. I am also currently looking at a used GTX 980 ti for around $250.
