While playing Rainbow six siege the pc died. Thought the power went out but I couldn't turn it back on. So I pulled the powercolor 7950 3 gig and it booted. So now I need a new video card. I'm debating the msi rx 480 gaming x. I was also told to look at 1050ti 4 gig and 1060. I play 1080p and here are my specs.

AMD 8350 at 4.3ghz
Gigabyte ud3 mobo
16 gig DDR 3 1600 mhz
Corsair Hx 750 watt PSU

I trust this forum and I'm on a budget. Msi rx 480 gaming x is on sale.

Yes go for it , RX 480 will be a nice upgrade if you play at 1080p , i would suggest find the cheapest one RX 480 and grab it asap. Don't get 1050Ti nor 1060 3GB as both are not worth it in the long run.

RX480 is hard to beat for 1080p.

If GTX1060 is cheaper you can consider it.

Also nicely overclocked RX470 can perform as good as 480, so if you want save some cash, 470 will pull itself just fine.

Sapphire rx 480 nitro+ oc or MSI rx 480 gaming x. Seems nitro has better cooler and insane oc out of box but msi is cheaper by like 40 bucks.

Look for fury on sale. IF can get one get it. Way better card and more future proof especially at 1080p. That will be my next card if vega doesn't perform up to par with price.

4GB isn't future proof.

Not nice having fluctuating FPS due to lack of memory.

Either the 480 or 6GB 1060 would be ok. 1070 would be better. Don't bother with a 1050Ti.
