Default Question to RX 460 owners - 03-08-2017, 23:18 | posts: 3,727 | Location: Denmark

I got some old machines with 350W PSU's and considered to install RX 460's (4GB version) in them instead of GTX750Ti's, since they seem perform equal if not better and have lower TDP.
The machines will be used for games like DOTA 2 and Team Fortress 2 probably at 1080p.
So just want someone who got such an AMD card to confirm that I do the right choice by going with the RX instead of the GTX.

How old are that machines? I bought a RX 460 2GB for upgrading my old Q6600 and it makes an amazing bottleneck

Q6600 is a bottleneck for an RX 460?? I was planning to install one in a system with an Athlon 5350....

A 5350?

You're better off with a 1050/ti.

NV is faster in systems with slower CPU

^^^ yep x3

As Agent-A01 just said NV cards are faster paired with slower CPUs:

Still have (rarely used backup gaming rig, when friends of my kids come to visit) one E5450 SLBBM E0 @ 4GHz on Asus P5Q Pro, 4x 2GB DDR2 1066 paired with PowerColor R9 270X TurboDuo OC 2GB GDDR5 and in most games E5450 @ 4GHz can't feed enough that stock OCed R9 270X, I rarely see GPU usage above 80-85%. It was even worse some 2 years ago thanks to unoptimised Radeon drivers but past year and half ago Radeon drivers are geting a bit better.

Still imho CPU like that OCed X5460 can hardly keep up with Radeon GPUs above 7850, guess in most situations/games GPU utilization on 7970 will hover around 60-70% in best case scenarios....

The RX 460 should give you an at least 10 fps bump on 1080p Overwatch type games compared to the 750Ti. Though the 460 has 15 more watts of TDP.
