Question Which video card gives best bang for the buck for running fortnite (PC) ?

Those cards are very old and you will need more performance for 144fps. In order to run fortnite at 1080p 144 you would need a gtx 1060 6gb or rx580. They would run it at 1080p low-medium settings. What settings do you want to run at and whats your whole system budget?
 
We' don't jave any system specs because we're putting it together. We'll likely go with a iCore 7 CPU and a gaming motherboard Gigabyte or Asus. Why won't the two gaming video card I have in the OP won't do 144fps ?
because they are old... very old
And if you don't have a computer yet, why not ask someone here to build one for you
stating what country you live in and how much money in YOUR currency you have.

Looking to buy a i7 CPU maybe an entry level budget is around $2000 USD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080.
 
For that money why would you concider those gpus? You can get a core I9 for that amount of money.

What country are you in, and what is your budget in your local currency? Prices can vary from one country to the next, and I get the impression that pricing might be different in your country from what it is in the US.

As for those two cards, as was said they are rather old, with both having launched in 2012, and at this point they would at best be considered "entry level" for gaming. Are you looking for hardware on the used market?
