Pretty Good Graphics Card?

Recommended Posts

Sir Topham Hatt    272

The price of graphics cards is as wide as the open road.

 

I bought a Powercolor RX580 (8GB), which at £400 or so, I thought was middle to upper good.  But I've seen some people's streams of games and they clearly have settings much higher than mine.

I play a game like Planet Coaster but whether it's the game, settings (which I have low-medium) or what, but the graphics card gets pretty noisy - so much so, I limit how much I play on it at any tone time.

 

Is a graphics card that's more in the £600 range going to be loads better?

 

I can't remember what I had before but I'm sure the card was only a couple of hundred pounds.  Didn't really notice a difference when I started using the new one.

 

What's a top card to buy these days?

a 2060 super or 2070 super would run rings around it.
