Hey!

So to anybody reading this, I'm thinking of upgrading my really old computer (slowly) as I'm bind by budget.

The current motherboard of my PC is Gigabyte GA-H67M-D2-B3 with I5-2500 CPU and Gigabyte Nvidia GT440 (gonna replace this)
So my options are:
  1. RTX 2060
  2. GTX 1660 / TI
  3. GTX 1060 - 6 gbs
  4. RX 580
Do you guys think option 1-2 will result in motherboard being the bottleneck in the setup?

Big thanks for reading and replying this :)

Well the platform would be because you couldn’t upgrade to any CPU on that platform and make it a balanced system.

Also you should look at the Vega 56 and 64. They’re cheaper or the same price as a 2060 but with the same (56) or better (64) performance

RTX 2060 IS the best in the list you gave. but all of the Gpus you listed will not perform as expected due to the bottleneck from the cpu . if you really want a smooth performance and feel that you really did an upgrade . then get yourself a new cpu that wont bottleneck . trust me I paired an rtx 2060 with an old i5 cpu and it didn't perform the way it should .

Your motherboard has PCIe x16 expansion slot, but it doesn't specify whether it is a PCIe version 3.0. But since PCie 3.0 is backwards compatible with older PCIe, you GPU should work, but it may not work to its full potential. Also, your CPU is a bigger bottleneck than the motherboard.
