Hello,

I have my build from 2013 and it's becoming quite old, I'm currently looking to upgrade my PC progressively starting with the Graphics Card.

My current specs are:

i5-3570K LGA1155

GTX 760 2 GB

B75M-D3H

8 GB DDR3 RAM

Seasonic S2ll-520 Bronze 520 Watts PSU


What would be the best possible graphics card that can run coherently without causing significant bottleneck? Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I'm from Egypt. Budget is around $500, primary usage for games and my monitor resolution is 1600x900. I'm willing to upgrade my monitor as well since it's pretty outdated.
Graphics card prices are at an insane all time high atm due to the extreme shortage of gpu's along with the internet mining craze. I'd do something like this for now until the prices of gpu's get back to normal.

What country are you located, what is your budget, what will be the primary uses for your PC and what is your monitor resolution?

Yes i'm aware that GPUs prices are insane, and so you're suggesting to build a new PC with my current GPU?
