Hey, I was wondering if anyone had any information on a gpu I should get. I’m looking for something in the $100-150 range. I don’t mind buying used, but if I can get something new, it might be better. Ive been considering getting a Radeon RX 480, 570, or 580 or maybe a GTX 1060. Which one of these do you think I could get the most bang for my buck out of??
 
The RX580 is effectively a higher clocked RX480, and the RX580 is comparable with the GTX 1060. Personally given those choices I would discount the RX480 and RX570 from a performance point of view.

And things were finely balanced between the RX580 and GTX 1060 as they would swap leads depending on the games.
 
I disagree, the 1650's performance is sub-par compared to the rest, and commands more money than most RX 570 cards.

I would also disregard the 1060 6GB, as its price is a bit elevated relative to the RX 580.

Ignore the 1060 3GB.

The RX 470 and 480 aren't available new anymore.

In the US, here's a list of RX 570 and RX 580, in order of price, mix of 4 and 8 GB models. I've seen the RX 570 4GB go for as low as $119.99, and the RX 580 8GB (only once or twice) go for as low as $159.99. Currently, however, the lowest priced models of each are $129.99 and $164.99, respectively.

If your $150 is a hard maximum limit, then the RX 570 4GB is the only good choice.
 
SirGhosty Hello. Assuming that you live in the United States, I recommend that you purchased a used RX 580 8 GB. There are many fine examples on Ebay US for $100 or slightly less. Just make sure to purchase the 8 GB version and do not buy the 4 GB variant. Also, with the left over $50 in your budget, I recommend that you purchase an SSD, if you don't already have one in your system. The first link below is a faster NVMe SSD (which I personally own and recommend). The second link below is a not-as-fast SATA SSD, but it's still a huge performance boost over a mechanical hard drive. The third link is to the RX 580 8 GB. Even though most of the results show buy it now prices starting at $130, you'll notice that most of them sell just under $100 when you click "sold" in the bottom of the left nav.
