Hello guys, i build my pc about 2 years ago with a ryzen 5 3400g and has been running it with the igpu (vega 11) till now. And has been planning on buying a rtx 2060 super for about $370 or a rtx 2060 12gb for around $353.

But now i came across a very good deal for a rtx 2060 6gb for almost $240.
Should i go ahead with the 2060 6gb or get one of the other 2?


Edit: 2060 6gb is from colorful and 12gb is asus evo oc. Super is gigabyte windforce oc

Is the extra $130 worth it for the 2060 Super and also since my cpu is a R5 3400g would it really make much of a difference?
In most cases it's going to make no difference. However to give you an example:

It makes a 44% (1080p) and 48% (1440p) difference to the minimum frame rates for Watchdogs Legion. However as you say you've got a 3400G. If you were to say to me, look I'm on a budget, I just want to play some games, nothing too crazy. Then I'd probably be inclined to save the money and go for the 2060 6GB. If you get to the point where you need a lot more than that, then there's a good chance you'll need more than 4 cores too.

Waste of money, you might end up paying import taxes if it comes from India, and this exists:
https://www.newegg.com/evga-geforce-rtx-2060-12g-p4-2263-kr/p/N82E16814487564?Description=2060&cm_re=2060-_-14-487-564-_-Product&quicklink=true

$280 directly from Newegg with 12GB of VRAM instead of 6GB.

Oh I see, my mistake. In terms of the GPU's I would either get the 2060 Super for $370 or the 2060 for $240. Can I ask what resolution you play at and what games you intend on playing in the future?
All the games i have played till now was in 1366x768 with low setting. So anything would be a upgrade at this point. And for games i plan on playing most of the aaa titles. Mostly SPs im not a fan of MPs. And my monitor is an lg ul500 4k with 60hz

Oh well in that case, the 2060 6GB will seem like magic. You will need to play at 1080p on that 4k monitor but it should do that on most games at 60hz. Some of the newer more demanding titles like Cyberpunk, Watchdogs Legion, Red Dead Redemption 2 are going to require some compromises, they won't run at high settings but you shouldn't have to run on low or anything like that.

Actually i had already completed rdr2 in low setting with my igpu. So I a bit of a compromise wont be a problem. Cyberpunk was giving me a some frame drops and lags though. Therefore if i can get a good experience with the upgrade that should be enough. I don't really even care much about the ray tracing in the rtx.

That's impressive you managed to complete RDR2 on the iGPU. The iGPU is wholly inadequate for Cyberpunk, it is a very CPU intensive game as well, it will be running a 4C/8T at or near 100% a lot of the time. It should still be a vast improvement with the 2060 though. Given what your used to the 2060 is going to be night and day better. If your into shooters then you might want to check out Halo Infinite if you haven't already done so, the multiplayer component is free and it should run quite well on that hardware.
