Hello Tomshardware!

I am looking to upgrade my GPU on my current PC and am having a hard time trying to figure out the best option.

I know my rig is old now but I don't have enough money to upgrade to new rig


My current build is:

CPU: Intel I7-920
CPU Cooling System: Prolimatech Megahalems Rev B
MotherBoard: GigaByte X58A-UD7
RAM: Adata DDR3 8GB 1600Mhz
EVGA 650W
Resolution: 1920x1080

i want to play on games at 1920x1080 resolution. Anyone who can help me choice the best option without bottlenecking?

Any help and advice is appreciated.

Thanks.
 
The question goes beyond a bottleneck. The cpu is 11 years and below the recommended for many modern games, in these games it will give poor performance regardless of gpu choice. However other games I expect it will perform satisfactory with a gpu like the 570/580 already suggested.

What about GTX 1050 TI or GTX 1650
Thanks.

If your in the US the RX 570 is a better choice for the money over the 1050 ti or 1650.

For $400 though why not just get a better CPU, GPU & more memory?
