Hello,

The GTX 560 in my dad’s computer seems to be failing ( green glitches on screen| windows crashes before loading if not in safe mode | graphic card had a heat sink moving inside upon inspection).

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This week or next week BUDGET RANGE: Around 200$ CAD

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: I‘m looking for a card that would offer enough performance to run civilisation VI ( the only purpose of a graphic card in his PC) .

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: EVGA Geforce GTX 560 and 600W psu

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: ( CPU : Intel I5 (dont remember model)/ mobo : P8P67 LE Asus / memory : 8 GB DDR3 ) this is a build from 2010

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: (newegg.ca ) COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Canada

PARTS PREFERENCES: None, as long as performance is similar and compatible with system

OVERCLOCKING: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: (1920x1080)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: ( cpu use stock cooling ) windows 10, desktop case is standard , long card won’t fit

Would a GTX 1650 be better than the 1050TI for nearly the same price?

Is there an ATI model that would be viable for the replacement?

thanks,

So basically , anything between the gtx 1050 /1650 | ati : Rx 570 will do the job.

would you suggest nvidia or ati ? (I had issues with ati drivers in the past (10 years ago) and don’t know how they perform today)

Exactly.
Those cards will be a big jump in capability.
I might suggest nvidia for two reasons:
1. The amd cards typically need 75w more power than equal performing nvidia cards.

2. You are now comfortable with the nvidia driver system.
(I also had some ati driver issues long ago)
But, today, I would not worry about ati drivers.

Thanks everyone for your help, I would have a last question :

Do you have any advice for the brand or any will do?
(Ex : EVGA, gigabyte ( have a 970 from them in my pc, MSI etc...)

EVGA and gigabyte, as well as Asus are old brands. Any of those and others should be fine.

If opting for a 1650, I think for about 10 dollars more you can get a 1650 super which is quite a bit faster. But you may need a better PSU.
 
As a brand, I like evga,
They have a good active support forum and a transferrable warranty.
They also have a 90 day free trade up option in case you find you needed a stronger card.
Read the fine print on the web site.

Psu is fine. Gtx 560 uses significantly more power. If the system ran the 560, it'll definitely run 1650 super.

Gtx 560 furmark 349w

Gtx 1650s furmark 180w

Difficult between those two picks. They'll perform the same. It'll come down to warranty, noise levels and aesthetics. Look at some reviews for each and see which one cools better and quieter.
