    hi guys

    i have a i5-4690k prosessor and 8 gb of ram
    and a gforce ti750
    and i have ben thinking of a new graphic card latley.
    when i am playing assetto corsa i have a framerate of 60-90fps
    without postprosessing.
    and now i see sometimes a white line on my monitor, its not there at the boot sequense
    so think it is the gpu.
    im thinking a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.
    it would be in my price range.
    i play dcs flightsim also but since i uppgraded to 2.5? with post prosessing my 750ti cant hadle it any more.

    so could you please tell me your thougts and aid me to the right card for me?


    thanks in advance

    Well, I wouldn't go fpr the 1660 ti. For a little more you can get a 2060 which is arguable better, and for much less you can get the rx 570 which is about 20 to 25% but 60% cheaper. It will still be way better than the 750ti and allow you to turn all eye candy on at 1080p.
    There is also the upcoming (next month maybe) rx 5500 and 5500xt which is set to challenge the 1660 and 1660ti I believe. AMD is really going strong on undercurting nvidia so if you can, wait a bit. If you are upgrading, make sure your psu is up to snuff as especially amd polaris cards (rx 570, 580 or 590) will be more power hungry.

    You could also go for gtx1080, they, as of now are very nicely priced, plenty of punch
    from that card, buy second hand with care, could find a bargain for notability under £300.
    I have a rtx2080 and a gtx1080 not that much difference in performance certainly relative
    to cost.:)

    Yeah. If OP is willing tp gp digging for second hand, some bargains can be found. A 1080 should cost slightly less than a 1660ti and offer slightly better performancd

    The 2060 Super I just installed was $399 coming from a 1050ti was the best purchase I’ve made this year.
    Yes, upgrade that 750!

    There are two cards in my humble opinion that give
    the optimum return with performance and price.
    Rtx2080 and gtx1080.
    ( admittedly it’s a close run thing with other cards, pricing marketing makes sure of that ).
    My Gtx 1080 clocks at 2025mhz in AC running a
    3440x1440 display at 120fps for 95% of the time
    with lots of AI or online players.
    It’s my i5 6600k cpu that struggles.

    If you are short on cash, a used 980 TI is a great buy on ebay.

    Generally your graphics card is almost always the best update, at least if you are playing at high resolutions.

    A bit more RAM would not hurt. Your loading times in DCS must be coffee break class.
