  1. If you want a performance boost have your girl friend(significant other) blow on the
    card…if that doesn't work, direct her to blow something else and you wont
    care about the performance of the card…just the performance of the
    blow 😉 the choice is pretty clear…

  2. planned cpu upgrade: Ryzen 3 3300x + motherboard: around $250
    planned gpu upgrade (dying from godforsaken 1050ti here): RTX 2070 / GTX 1080 Ti : $400-$500

    current budget: $40

  3. The 5700 XT or the 2070 super seems to be the sweet spot right now for higher-end performance. I think I will spend the extra $100-$130 for the 2070 super and get the 15-20% performance increase.

  4. I Bought a Radeon XFX RX 480 For $250 Now they went up to $420 and $199 Refurbished Someone tell me what is up with the prices of these Gpus

  5. Goddamnit… i didn't get christmas money the past 3 years and nor did i get birthday money, a 2008 macbook-trashcan and i will never get a pc even if i get it promised in 10 years. Wish i was rich.

  6. Hey, I am trying to decide which graphics card to buy in order to fully take advantage of the valve index without going a penny over. This video is helpful, but I am still wondering what the difference is between an MSI branded card vs an evea vs an asus. Why do they have different brands but are called the same graphics card? Like this if you are wondering the same and hopefully I can get some straight answers!

  7. Hi @Linus Tech Tips,
    I have i5 3450, Dell 2216H – Full HD monitor and MSI GTX 460 1GB DDR5.

    GPU upgrade options:

    Sapphire pulse RX 580 4GB : 156$

    MSI Radeon Armor OC RX 580 4GB: 171$

    MSI Radeon Armor OC RX 570 8GB: 190$

    MSI Radeon Armor OC RX 580 8GB: 195$

    MSI Radeon Armor RX 580 8GB : 198$

    ————————————————–
    Which one should I choose or any other GPU options are also welcomed. Thanks in advance.

  8. People! You should consider power consumption, or performance / power consumption, too. For me, power usage is over double the cost of my GTX 970 after using it for 7 years.

  9. Can somebody please help me. I don't have any graphics card in my PC and I don't have enough money to buy one but I just want to play games from itch.io

  10. I want to know. What would you say is better. A dual rtx 2080 ti or a single rtx titan. You can get both for about the same price and I want to know which would be better.

  11. Gt120 still works great no need to upgrade!! Radon ATI HD5870 also works great no need to upgrade!!
