Looking for Graphics Card Suggestion

Level 7
Hey Buddy,

I'm new in this group and wanted to build my first gaming PC for gaming and video editing works (I'm thinking to start my own channel).

As I'm a student, I'm not able to spend much on PC Parts so I'm confused about which graphics card should I choose in my build?

Hi 4m4nkumar

The RTX 2060 super is last generation and at $721.58 u.s. dollars, that's too much when you can get an RTX 3080 for $699.99 u.s. dollars, that is if you can find one.

If you can find an RTX 3060 Ti in stock, this would be a better choice at $399.00 u.s. dollars.

4266MHz ram likely won't run at that speed with the 2600x, go with something like 3200MHz, this will save you a headache and some cash.

The 5600x is only about $73.00 more dollars than the 2600x, you could jump up to it with the ASUS TUF Gaming x570 plus.

5600x is on its way at B&HPhoto -

ASUS TUF Gaming x570 plus - (This motherboard requires the latest bios for ryzen 5000 cpu's, if you don't currently have a compatible ryzen cpu, you might want to look at another motherboard)

You could then step up to a a pcie 4.0 ssd.

Power supply, would step up to at least a 750w gold.

You will need a cpu cooler.

What monitor will you be using?
