Hi,

I'm a little overdue for a new graphics card. I currently have an Asus R9 290 which I bought just a little over 7 years ago. It still performs surprisingly well for it's age but it's time for something new.

I've heard the graphic card prices aren't what they were a couple years ago during the crypto mining and that there are new models released or that are about to release so this seems like a good time to buy one.

I'd like something that would go along well with my current CPU So no bottleneck or something too powerful either.

Budget $400

Everything in this build was purchased 2 years ago except for the graphics card. So i'm not looking to upgrade anything else.

Intel i5-8400
16 Go ram DDR4
500 Go SSD
1 TB Hard Drive
SeaSonic M12II 620 Watts

I really want to avoid going over $400 so if I can get something in the $300 range that would go along with my CPU well that would be great.

Thanks

The GTX 1660 Ti or Super was what I had in mind after doing some research and your post further confirms my choice.

Since Canadian prices are a little different I ended up going with a Super which is a bit cheaper than the Ti.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion.
