Choose the best value for money GPU for gaming 2019

GPU comparison

GPU is one of the most important components for a gaming PC. Without a GPU gaming is nearly impossible. Put the wrong GPU in your system can be a waste of money. In the market right now there are so many GPU Available. But choosing the right one for your need would be difficult. Here I did a comparison of GPU for budget, mid-range, and high-end build. I pick up graphics cards NVIDIA RTX because they are the latest graphics card in the market. Although I did pick up some GPU from AMD for a good GPU comparison.

GPU comes in price range from $100 or 6000Rs to up-to $1000 or 100,000Rs. But the budget will be decided based on your purpose. You want gaming, video editing or other graphical task or just watching moving. Talking about gaming, which resolution(1080P, 1440P or 4K) and which setting you want to play.

Moreover, you need to check your CPU, is it enough power to run my GPU? If not, as a result, it cause you bottleneck which is one of the most worst case in PC building.

For my testing, I’m using high graphics settings. You can always drop your settings to medium to low to get more FPS. But I am interested in the best possible graphics and a good frame rate at 1080P 1440P and 4k. Before further proceed I have one conclusion for you. If you’re playing at 1080P or 1440P and just want at least 60fps with all modern game and don’t care about ray-tracing. I would recommend GTX 1660ti.

OK so if you want little more future proof and higher more frame-rate, higher-resolution. Then the RTX lineup makes more sense.

In metro the RTX 2060 is good for 91 fps at 1080P even 71fps at 1440P. So a lot of people that will be just right but it’s not really ideal for RTX. But we’ll come onto that. RTX 2070 super seems to be a great entry-level at 4K but it’ll probably need a mild overclock to hit the 60 marks every time.

After turning on the ray-tracing. For this, you’ll need an RTX 2070 super to hit 60fps with and without DLSS. The RTX 2080 super is the next logical steps if you want a higher refresh rate. But don’t expect it to do much more than 60fps at 4K. Of course, the RTX 2080 ti is a ray-tracing monster.

Apex Legends at 1080P, 1440P, & 4K

In Apex interestingly there’s basically no difference between a twenty sixty super and the older 2070. And there’s also no difference in RXT 2070 super and regular RTX 2080. Even though both super cards are cheaper. If you’ve got a 60Hz 1080P or 1440P monitor then the RTX 2060 super is a great choice for a higher refresh and future-proof. RTX 2060 super is 16% faster than regular 2060. If you want more FPS then you also consider RTX 2070 super.

Here RTX 2060 is great, 126fps at 1080P and 84fps at 1440P both at ultra settings. For most people, this will easily be fast enough. If you want 144fps 1080P then you’ll probably want to go for the RTX 2060 super. But if you’re one of the 0.5% of gamers on steam playing at 4k and want to get 60fps then the RTX 2070 super is your entry point. Again this is not really much between the RTX 2060 super and 2070. And it’s same between the RTX 2070 super and 2080. Despite big differences in pricing.

Battlefield 5 at 1080P, 1440P, & 4K

GPU comparison

Similar story in battlefield 5. 140fps at 1080P and 103fps at 1440P using high settings with RTX 2060. That’s a seriously good performance. For high refresh 1440P then I think the 2070 super is the best value.

GPU comparison

Battlefield 5 with high ray-tracing settings at 1440P. Clearly, the RTX 2060 is ideal if you are limited to 60fps and it would just be overkill at 1080P. This really goes to show just how far ray-tracing has come. It was basically unusable at launch and now here we are with the RTX 2060 getting 73fps without DLSS.

Conclusion

Well for 1080P, RTX 2060 will get you between 90-125 fps at high settings, which is great. An RTX 2060 offers around a 15% performance boost and ray-tracing compare to the 1660ti.

So most of us won’t really need anything more than this. Now the RTX 2060 super offers similar value actually but it’s only worth considering if you’ve got a 144Hz panel at 1440P.

Now for high refresh 1440P and even 4K 60fps gaming. I’d say the RTX 2070 would be my choice. It manages 60 to 70 FPS at 4K but as games more demanding, it might require you to lower the graphics settings a little bit.

But if you are gaming at 4K and want a reliable 65-80fps range or maybe you’ve got a super high refresh 240Hz 1080P monitor, then I think the RTX 2080 super is the best bet.

The comparison has obviously been focused on team green and their RTX lineup. But also consider AMD’s RX5700, which is between the RTX 2060 and 2060 super in terms of price to performance. The higher 5700XT, which is between the RTX 2060 super and 2070 super.
