Hey guys,

I am back with a new requirement. I am going to buy a graphics card which can give me 144 FPS @1080p in most games, and the choices are RTX 2060 super or 5700xt. Trouble is both of these cards cost more than what they should right now. So, I am still deciding on which card to get. In the meanwhile, I have 2 questions:

1) Is my PSU enough?
2) Will my CPU bottleneck these graphics cards? If so, what according to you is the best possible card for this system?

Here is my current system:
CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 1600 no overclock possible
Mobo - Asus ROG strix b350f gaming - Link
RAM - 2x8GB Gskill trident z RGB 3000 MHz F4-3000C16D-16GTZR - Link
PSU - Seasonic M12ii evo 520W fully modular - Link
GFX - Zotac Geforce GTX 1060 6GB mini - Link
Case - Cooler Master MasterBox MB511 RGB Mid Tower Case (MCB-B511D-KGNN-RGB)
OS - Windows 10 pro x64 OEM


Thank you as always!

PSU is more than enough.
Get Zotac RTX 2060 6GB Super Mini @ 36k

Galax 2060 Super (32999 - 1750 Instant discount with ICICI). Comes to just 31249. Haven't seen a lower price for a 2060 Super anywhere.

The other option is to get an RX 5700 (slower than 2060 Super at stock by around 4%) and then flash it with a 5700 XT bios. This will make it around 10% faster than the 2060 Super.

Here's a reference model for the same price :-

https://www.amazon.in/ASUS-AMD-Radeon-RX-5700/dp/B07TWDQQQL/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=RX+5700&qid=1571196630&sr=8-4

Note: This will be noisy due to the blower cooler.

Thanks guys. I am steering clear of the radeon reference cards. Nvidia FE is fine.

Here is what I am after: But its 36k right now.

For 2060 super, I see only brands like Galax, inno3d now, which I dont even recognise. Is it just me or are these brands ok? What about their after sales?

Also, is my PSU enough and will my CPU be a bottleneck? Answer this assuming I am getting a 5700xt.

Galax is fine. Been using one low end card of theirs for over 3-4 years. Their service is also done by supertron who have a decent reputation.

PSU is fine. These cards don't eat crazy power.
