    I think you will like it. I've got a Dell Inspiron I5676 with a Ryzen 7 2700x CPU. It has an OEM 4GB RX 580 card in it and I've been about 90% happy with it playing a lot of Far Cry 5. My upgrade is coming too! I'm swapping out the OEM 4GB RX 580 for this:
    AMD Radeon RX 580 GTS Black Core Edition 8GB - RX-580P828D6

    Then I'm upgrading an older desktop with the OEM card.

    Hello and thanks for your reply, i have been a GeForce fan for years but will consider an AMD Card.
    Do the research and go with a GeForce GTX 1080, 8 GB. Do not consider the 1080Ti.

    If the price is still too high, consider a GeForce GTX 1070, 8 GB, instead.

    The card in the link provided in post 11 is for 220. The least expensive GTX1070 from the same source is 270. The GTX1080, 467.

    The GTX1060 would be close to the RX580 in both price and performance.

    I admit that I've used both AMD and nVidia cards in the past. I've preferred nVidia's drivers.

    The 1070 looks like a considerably better card than the RX 580. Whether it'd be worth the extra 50 to the OP, I'll leave up to the OP.

    I like nVidia drivers better as well. I have a laptop computer with a GTX 1060 and it seems to do fine at 1920x1080 which is the laptop's native resolution. If you're running a 4k monitor and want the native resolution I'd probably scrape up the funds for a 1080 or at least a 1070, don't think a 1060 would cut it unless you run at 1920x1080.

    I always buy at the higher end of the curve.

    So the 8 GB 1070 (or 1080) would be the real way to go, IMHO.

    Spend a bit more now and enjoy it longer...



    P.S. I'm not an AMD fanboy.
