Hi, I want to upgrade my GPU with my current setup, I believe almost any upgrade in GPU will be worth it because buying a new motherboard and CPU is way too expensive, this is my setup:

My budget is up to $200.

Thanks!

Well, the thing is I almost don´t play a lot of games now because of my GPU (I think).
But some games I would like to play are:
-Total war series (I can play some of them but at low graphics)
-PUGB
-Red dead redemption (not even at medium haha but I want to play it).
-Mount and Blade Bannerlord.
-COD Warzone.


Thanks!
A quick Google search might help you figure out if these games would benefit having more cores. I haven’t had personal experience with these games, so can’t help you out there.

But assuming the CPU isn’t the issue, then yea, the 1650 is a great card. I think on the other camp the 5500 could work(sorry unsure of the pricing at the moment). The older RX 570/580/590 could also be good choices depending on the price you find for those.

Thanks for the suggestion!
Do you have a prefered model?
ASUS ROG STRIX OC is the best
EVGA SC Ultra kinda good too
INNO3D and MSI middle
And ZOTAC, Palit is the worst, but it doesnt mean they are not useable, it's up to you, which you want to buy, faster and better cooling, or budget one it's gonna work well yeah yeah, but a bit worse.

I would also say that it depends on the type of games you play. The reason i say that is that 4460 could be an issue if the games you play are more CPU based than GPU based.
