    Hey guys, I need help in looking for a graphic card but I’m not sure what to get. Btw I need it for gaming so it has to be able to run “intensive” games such as GTA 5 on very high graphics.

    My current PC specs are as follows: I7-4770 16 GB DDR3 RAM GTX 760 2GB And I’m playing on 1920x1080.

    I’ve had this set up for over 5 years now. The 2GB video memory on my current GTX760 is bleh. It feels like it is overheating at times too.

    So I’m looking for a 4gb video memory at least. Currently considering the GTX960 4GB but heard many saying that the upgrade is not worth.

    So what graphic cards would y’all recommend for my setup. “Ignoring” budget for now, which are the high quality graphics I should get at affordable prices?

    In short I just wanna run GTA5 on very high without any FPS/temperature issues.

    The GeForce GTX 960 uses about 50 watts less power and has about a 17% better performance than the GeForce GTX 760.
    I'm not a hardware/gaming expert, but it sounds like a decent choice to me.
    I'm sure though that others here will suggest better choices.

    Nvidia gtx 1660ti is the current best bang for your buck mid tier gpu, will give performance close to and sometimes better than a gtx 1070, if your aiming for high end then go with a rtx 2060/2070, if your looking for a solid 60 frames in 1080p the Rx 580/590 from amd will do just fine for less money than any of the Nvidia cards.
