When it comes to budget, the AMD RX 5600 XT might be the best choice. This might be one of the cheapest graphics cards that you can pair with this processor that allows you to play games at least 1080p, if not 1440p. This card is equipped with a Navi 10 XLE die which offers a base clock rate of 1375 MHz and 2304 stream multiprocessors. This card also has 14 GBPS GDDR6 memory, something that most Nvidia cards at the same price lack, making it a more compelling option. Its actual Nvidia competitor is the GTX 1660 Super, but it is much cheaper and more power-efficient since it has a TDP of only 150W, and the clock rate can be cranked up to 1620 MHz.

A couple of aftermarket cards of AMD RX 5600 XT, but the one I recommend is the XFX RX 5600 XT THICC II PRO, which has one of the best cooling solutions installed and thus offers some overclocking potential. Several variants of this card are available from XFX, but stick with the dual fans 14 GBPS one as the other is 12 GBPS, and they are both the same price. Getting the better one would be good without spending more.

This graphics card is pretty straightforward in terms of aesthetics, but the backplate and the full black color that shines in RGB build make it more valuable. This card has three DisplayPort, one HDMI, and one DVI slot on the side, allowing four monitors to be connected simultaneously. This card has an 8-Pin power connector on its top side, which gives it most of the power it needs to function. It's a good option if you want to play Esports games or AAA titles at 1080p resolution, but you may have to make some compromises with this price. It's still a much better choice than those Turing-based cards if you are considering getting one instead.

As they were more powerful than AMD Navi cards, these graphics cards from Nvidia were released to compete with them. The announcement of these cards was sudden, and all of them are updates to their original models with more power at a lower price, at least in these days where mining is a hot topic. RTX 2060 Super is one of the best options for pairing with Ryzen 7 2700X and using Real-Time Ray Tracing or DLSS. Performance-wise, this card is excellent, and you can use it for mid-range gaming at 1080p and 1440p resolutions, although you may have to compromise on in-game settings or frame rates in some recent titles.

AMD's graphics card offers the same performance as the RX 5700, but this one has RTX features AMD lacks even in the RX 6000 series (only a few games support RTX). With the GeForce RTX 2060 Super SC Ultra Gaming, EVGA has a solid RTX 2060S card. The card's overclocking potential is also great, but it consumes a lot of power since it uses one 8-Pin connector to fulfill its power needs. The users who want to use this card for VR gaming might be disappointed since, except for Gigabyte, no other vendor offers a USB Type-C port on RTX 2060 Super.

There are 2176 CUDA cores in this card, and its boost clock reaches 1680 MHz, as well as 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with 14GBPS memory speed. In addition, the front side of this card has three DP ports and one HDMI port, allowing four displays to be connected simultaneously. Due to the shortage of graphics cards and the high demand for mining, most users can't afford them these days, and this is a great option to consider for that time. With solid build quality, exceptional performance, and better clocks than any other vendor, EVGA's GeForce RTX 2060 Super SC Ultra Gaming is the best GPU for Ryzen 7 2700X.

Features

  1. Better than RTX 2060 for the same price.
  2. Entry-level graphics cards offering RTX features.
  3. Great for 1080p & 1440p gaming.

What do you think of the Nvidia RTX 2060 Super? We have something exciting from AMD for you this time. AMD's Navi 10 XT die powers the AMD RX 5700 XT, the best offering of the Navi 10 architecture. The card has 2560 SMUs, 1750 MHz of the core clock, 1905 MHz boost clock, and is surprisingly equipped with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory at a speed of 14 GBPS. In terms of performance, the RX 5700 XT is roughly equivalent to the RTX 2070 Super, with both of them offering similar specs but with their advantages and disadvantages. In addition, all of the aftermarket RX 5700 XT implementations offer great features. But our favorite is the XFX RX 5700 XT Triple Dissipation, which you know is better in thermal and clock performance than other cards.

XFX has made many improvements to this card, making it far superior to the reference card, which offers stock clocks and low-profile thermal solutions. There are better clocks in it, and you can manually overrun it to get even better performance. The aesthetics are pretty straightforward, and there are no RGB lights or fancy components. Despite this card's great color scheme and black backplate, it helps in better cooling and maintaining aesthetics. In addition, other cards in the series also support four displays with three DisplayPorts and one HDMI port on the right side.

When under load, the three fans on the front of the XFX RX 5700 XT make a great airflow in the heatsink vents, cooling down the graphics card. With AMD graphics cards, Sapphire and XFX have some of the best cooling solutions on the market, while Nvidia's best cooling solutions come from MSI and Gigabyte. While it lacks RTX features, one of the best alternatives to Nvidia RTX 2070 Super offers the same performance for a lower price. In the graphics card, your only loss will be Real-Time Ray Tracing and DLSS, but you can save much money for other components by compromising on them.

Features

  1. Great 1440p graphics cards.
  2. No Ray Tracing and DLSS support.
  3. RTX 2070S alternative for a low price.
  4. Budget-friendly 1440p graphics card.
Pros
  • Exceptional 1440p performance.
  • Great set of features.
  • Comes with a full-sized backplate.
  • Very budget-friendly 1440p card.
Cons
  • Lacks Ray Tracing and RTX features.
  • Aesthetically straightforward.

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Super Windforce OC

BASE CLOCK 1785 MHz
CORE COUNT 2‎560
MEMORY 8 GB
OUTPUT PORTS 3 × DisplayPort, 1 × HDMI, 1 × USB Type-C

The RTX 2070 Super is a refreshed RTX 2070 where both of the cards come at the same price, while the 2070S has a performance advantage because it’s no less than RTX 2080 at 1440p in modern titles. This card’s AMD competitor is RX 5700 Xt, which comes at half price but doesn’t offer RTX features like Real-Time Ray Tracing and DLSS. Long story short, it’s one of the best graphics cards for Ryzen 7 2700X if you are willing to play triple-A titles at 1440p resolution. Those who want to try out RTX features without spending much money on cards like RTX 2080 Ti can also consider this one.

One of the cheapest RTX 2070 Super you can get is the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Super Windforce 3x OC, and as the name suggests, this card comes with a Windforce 3X cooler, which has three fans and a large-sized heatsink. This card has impressive clock rates, and as it comes factory overclocked so you can expect better performance from it in modern titles. Most of the Gigabyte cards come with a USB Type-C port, which is also available in this one, and it’s fully VR Ready so that you can play your favourite VR titles on it.

Excellent for 1440p gaming and good for those willing to try the RTX features, which are absent in AMD competitors. Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Super Windforce OC is the best choice you can consider for a mid-range build.

EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Super XC Gaming

CUDA CORES 3072
BOOST CLOCK 1830 MHz
MEMORY 8 GB
OUTPUT PORTS 3 × DisplayPort, 1 × HDMI

We all like to play games at 4K resolution, but most of us can’t afford RTX 20080 Ti, which is super expensive these days. Though a cheaper option with some little power cut is there, RTX 2080 Super can run modern titles at 4K resolution though not sure about high frame rates. The performance difference between this card and RTX 2080 Ti is roughly 40%, but it also comes at half price, making it a compelling option. The GPU used in it is TU104, which comes with 3072 shading units, 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, and 1815 MHz of boost clock. 

As this graphics card is slightly expensive, the best aftermarket I would recommend is EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Super XC Gaming, which is cheaper than others but offers solid performance. The clocks of EVGA Super XC are slightly better than the founder edition, and it gives more overclocking potential than the reference card so that you can expect much better performance. Aesthetically this card is pretty straightforward, but the RGB lights and the backplate increase its beauty, and in RGB builds, it looks good. 

RTX 2080 Super comes at the price of its predecessor but is much more powerful, making us consider this graphics card for our build. If you are looking for a graphics card for 4K or 1440p gaming, then it’s a great choice you can consider.

ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti

BASE CLOCK 1350 MHz
BOOST CLOCK 1665 MHz
MEMORY 11 GB
OUTPUT PORTS 2 × DisplayPort, 2 × HDMI, 1 × USB Type-C

Nvidia got some substantial competition from AMD with the release of their RX 5700 XT, which is the same in performance as of RTX 2070 Super, so the company launched two more flagship cards RTX 2080 Super and 2080 Ti. If you are looking for the best powerful graphics card for the money, I recommend getting the RTX 2080 Ti. The good thing about this card is that it can nearly max out most modern titles and upcoming ones, too, like Cyberpunk 2077. Simultaneously, 4K gaming and real experience of RTX features are also available on this graphics card.

You can’t make the best graphics card list without considering a choice from the ASUS Rog series as they are offering better build quality and clock than any other vendor. Though with such premium looks and quality, they are slightly more expensive than the competitors. The graphics card we’ve there on the list comes with a clock speed of 1665 MHz, which you can overclock to push its clocks for better performance. There is a large heatsink with three fans responsible for most of the cooling, while for aesthetics, this graphics card also has customizable RGB lights.

RTX 2080 Ti is a futureproof graphics card that we can consider for high-end gaming, but only if you are not considering the budget. This card is enough to max out the latest titles at 4k resolution and the upcoming one with such a high price.
