    420 for a 1660! I'd rather get a cheap second hand card or go without for a couple for months to see what happens.

    I'd be so full of regret after paying that much that I couldn't even enjoy the games.

    Yeah, I don't mean to be rude but you're nuts to pay that much.

    Best choice is still a second hand RX 570 4GB. It sells for around 40000 Ft ($136 including world-record 27% VAT). And there are tons in the market. I know 1660 is faster, but only by 35%. And it's nearly 4 times more expensive.

    You can't buy anythign else . Old used cards are even more expensive. ( If there are any)

    Yeah as you should either go for a 6800xt, which with a bit of searching can be found for a +25% over the mrsp… not cheap but stil it can make sense, if you have the money.
    Or, if you don't want to waste that amount of money on a GPU buy something like the rx570 or even rx470, second hand. At 1080p, they can still play most if not all games resonably well.
    Buying in 2021 a 1660 for 400$ is really a waste of money I'm afraid..

    In this exact time on Ebay there are a bunch of rx470 around, for 100-150$, not exactly a good deal but still better than 400$ for a 1660, at least in my opinion.

    Ouch... You can get Xbox Series X for 500 Eur (or a bit more if you pay scalper prices) and you'll get complete gaming device that will run all the latest games for many years and is like 3x more powerful than GTX1660. Oh yeah there's also Game Pass that's insane gaming value. I really don't understand this blind devotion to PC platform that people are willing to pay 420eur for GTX1660.

    Yes but this is in the past , situation now is different . RX570 , used OLD card that can die anytime . Costs minimum 200 EUR , so 400 EUR 1660 GTX is better option even if it makes you cry . It is not my problem , i advaised against buing any gaming PC right now .. but she told me she has to have it now , today , not in 1-3 months , today .

    Couldn't you use any of the RX 400 or 500 series cards that are 4 GB? I was and am selling my used cards from the GTX 960 and 970 to the RX 470 or 570 cards for less than 150 US dollars. I need to sell them since much of my computer equipment is going out of date and I expect to both buy an entire computer and buy video cards later in the year or next year. I know there's a ton of used RX 560 cards selling for under 150 around me and many of those cards have 4 GB of ram and perform around the GTX 1050 or just below the GTX 1050ti. Good Luck - Hope it works out.
