Hey all, my graphics card died and I plan on building a new cpu, but before I do I would like to get more out of my current PC.
Heres what im running:
an old Ryzen 5 3.4 ghz
16 gigs of DDR4
broken GTX 960

games I play:
-Squad
-Company of heroes
-Doom
-Overwatch

I need a new graphics card to get it working, I dont want to spend a lot, because I think im due for a new computer within the next year or 2. I would be fine with a older card for CHEAP that is better then the 960 I had, but also something I can THROW OUT, in 2 years.

what would you buy?
thank you :)

Depends on your budget and the resolution you play at, but I'd go for a used 1070. Plenty enough for Squad, which is by far the most demanding game in that list (I play Squad at 1440p and had a 1070). Honestly if that's all you play and especially if it's at 1080p, the 1070 might last you a lot longer than 2 years.
