    Hi all

    Current system

    Ryzen 1600 @3.6ghz
    16GB 3200 Ram
    27" Curved 1080p max 72hz Monitor freesync (Currently working ok with nvida)
    Corsair 750w PSU

    Have a 1050ti Graphics card, and i have to say it does pretty well, but im looking for something that i can max everything out at 1080p, im not looking to go any higher res as yet.

    What would be best, so many darn cards out there.

    Depends on how much you want to spend. 2060 should be a great choice at 350$. If thats steap there is a RX590 at 260$ or RX580 8GB at 180$. All three capable at 1080p max settings.

    well i assume the 2060 would be best, but arnt they crap?.

    never really got on with radeon cards, would they be better with freesync?

    My Samsung C27F396 freesync works great 580. Never used it on nvidia cards or to be honest didnt use an nvidia card for a while.

    As far im happy my AMD cards over the years so i recommend you check out 580/590. If you can afford 2060 go with that of course. ;)

    i thought the rtx2060 didnt perform as well as the older cards though, or did i read wrong.

    2060 is almost as strong as a GTX1080, even a little better in selected cases.

    Maxing everything is not always an option, as many games will have a very high "ceiling", with options that will take as much power as you can give them.

    Ambiental occlusion comes to mind, as do the most taxing forms of AA. Or shadows. Raytracing is probably the worst, but limited to a few games.

    But overall a 2060 should handle 1080p just fine.

    I come from a 1070ti, which is weaker that a 2060 and could run my old monitor's 2560x1080 without problems.

    However you could probably benefit from aiming for stable 60Hz, those extra 20% frames to get your FPS at least as high as your refresh rate (or capped at it if you use Vsync) probably will count. Unless I'm mistaken and you meant you got Freesync working with Nvidia, which I think it's not possible, but again I don´t know crap about Freesync so I might be wrong.

    In your place I would be asking around for a 2060 or 2070 if you have the money to spare.

    At this point in time, 2060 is wasted @ 1080p 72Hz.

    1060 6GB is a good option too.

    2060 would be an overkill at 1080p/72hz but it's still decent value for money, it's basically on par with a gtx 1080. Which can do 80fps at 1440p in most titles.

    If I was you, I'd look into a 1070/ti or a second hand 1080. I just sold a perfectly good 1080 for £285 on here. A card like that will run everything 1080p for a few years to come and they can be had cheap now.

    Maxing out games at 1080p largely depends on what you will be playing. A 1060 or 580 won't get you maxed 1080p@72Hz in higher end AAA games like Assassin's Creed or Just Cause 4, but you'd be fine in GTAV or Overwatch.

    It would be much easier to help suggest a GPU if you were able to give us a better idea of what you currently play and what you intend to play, like AAA or Esports games. AAA would need more like a 2060, while older or Esport like titles you could be fine with as low as a 570!

    It's not that they're high end, it's just that these titles are two of the worst badly optimized titles out there. Just Cause 4 manages to wreck performance while not even looking any better than Just Cause 3, for example.

    True, perhaps high end wasn't the best wording. I was in a hurry. Maybe most demanding/least optimized? Either way, the titles at hand for the OP can make a huge difference in what kind of GPU would be best suited. :)

    Nothing below 1080/2070/Vega.

    For a shorter term 1080p solution, RX 580.

    Right now, freesync works better on AMD cards. However, future nvidia drivers might improve, but there's no guarantee they will.
