Hi, I'm in need of a new graphics card as my old one as died (MSI r9 270x).
My current build (pretty old one) -
  • CPU - i5 4440
  • GPU - MSI r9 270x 2GB (Toasted)
  • Motherboard - Gigabyte GA H97
  • Ram - Corsair Vengeance 8 GB(2x4GB)
  • Monitor - Dell S2240l 21.5 inch (60hz) monitor
I'm looking to upgrade but I'm tight on the budget. My main requirements are to just do gaming. I'm not particularly an enthusiast, I'm happy with medium-high settings at 1080p. Hence, happy to just get a new graphics card right now.
I'm looking at RX 570 or RX 580 cards, but not sure if my CPU would be a bottleneck.

My games list -

  • Battlefield series
  • DIRT series - rally, 2 and 3
  • GTA V
  • F1 18 and 19
  • Assetto corsa pc
  • City Skylines
  • Assassin Creed Odyssey
  • Basically FPS, Racing, Simulations (Strategy), Indie games and Role-playing games.
I also need to get 2 sticks of 4GB ram and an SSD (something like 256GB). I really don't want to buy another CPU and mobo-cpu.

I wouldn't recommend mixing memory kits so if your going with a 2x4gb kit I'd buy a matching one but it may not even boot with identical kits so your really better off selling your current kit and buying a 2x8gb kit.

As long as you got good performance with the 270X then getting the RX 570 would be a good pairing with the 4460 and a solid upgrade.

Would these parts be within your budget?

Thanks for the reply. I currently have 8 gigs of RAM (that is with 2 sticks of 4GB), hence was thinking of getting 2 more sticks of 4GB ram. I know that mixing kits won't be good and also just a single 4 GB ram stick wouldn't be better either.

I'm getting Asus Rx 580 Dual OC Edition 8GB at a very low price, almost same as the 570 cards. Should I better go with that?

Also about the SSD, I'm getting a Samsung 860 Evo at a much lower price than the Sandisk one. I guess I'll go ahead with that one.
