(OLD GPU) 3072MB ATI AMD Radeon R9 200 Series (Sapphire/PCPartner)
(NEW GPU) GALAX GeForce® GTX 1660 Ti (1-Click OC)
6GB GDDR6 192-bit DP/HDMI/DVI-D
111GB INTEL SSDSC2BW120A4 SCSI Disk Device (SSD)
465GB Western Digital WDC WD5000AAKX-00ERM SCSI Disk Device (SATA)

Hi, good day,
Currently, my GPU is damage. Didn't know what the cause, it dont detect the HDMI input, try on another rig also same. So, i want to upgrade to another GPU.

My question is, should i upgrade to galax 1660ti, or go for another GPU? Will it be huge bottleneck? Gaming for couple of years ahead (2, 3 years). Thanks!

Your gpu is new dont have a warranty? I would just ask for replacement and wouldnt suggest to a faster card with this cpu if you playing at 1080p. If you want an upgrade add 8 more gb of ram 8gb is not enough for the new games.

As long as you stay within 1080p screen resolution, you should be fine. Hard to comment whether it's going to be future-proof, because this depends on the type of game being played as well.

Anyways, like I mentioned above,
You should be fine, as long any game is not that much taxing on the CPU:

Yep, will be staying on 1080p, coz my rig is always connected to my tv. I dont use the pc monitor 😂
