Looking for advice on a gpu upgrade.
So, I am running this:
Ryzen 7 2700X
Windows 10 - eventually will shift to 11 but not in any rush
What would be a sensible gpu upgrade?
Gaming-wise my concern is less about FPS but compatibility with old games (have in the past had issues with AvP, Planescape Torment) - generally I buy from gog for this machine but also use WC3/D2 from CD, and sometimes use WoW vanilla (private servers).
The reason for the upgrade is I want to try Topaz Video AI which seems to prefer a 2GB/Dx12 card. And given the GTX560Ti is from 2011, maybe an upgrade is overdue. And while I'm at it, might as well have some expected longevity if I can manage it.
The CPU is from 2018, not really interested in upgrading that. My monitor is 1920x1200, not 1920x1080, not intending to buy 4k any time soon.
I'm thinking nVidia GTX 1650 or AMD 6500 XT, but the gpu market seems horrendously complicated, prices seem high for mid-range, many things are out of stock...
