here is the one my brother has. works really well. https://www.amazon.com/Gaming-GeForce-Overclocked-Graphics-TUF-GTX1660S-O6G-GAMING/dp/B081SPGMBD/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=1660+super&qid=1590027974&sprefix=1660+&sr=8-4 cheers, and hope the building goes well!

Thanks. Another person also said he/she is getting a 1660 Super. I see the price for the Asus TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1660 Super Overclocked 6GB Edition Amazon is about $230 USD.

Ah right. That’s resolution scale. Lowering that to 90% should bump up a lot more FPS but in doing so will make it a little blurrier. And yeah 200% or 300% is either close to or at 4k which is really taxing on a 1060 to process.
By the way, I wouldn’t get the 1660 but instead get a 1660 Super. It’s usually the same price or maybe $10 more dollars for like 5% more performance which is a decent bump. Here’s one that would be good and it’s the same price as the one you listed https://www.amazon.com/dp/B081SPGMBD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_JK4iEbPMRJJ24
If you need help with anything else just message me.

i believe he could even get a 1660 super for 20 bucks more on Amazon

I can vouch that the 1660 Super 6gb overclocked version is a solid card and meets my expectations. I was primarily a PS4 Fortnite player for the longest time (3 years or so), but with each update for Fortnite the performance on PS4 was getting worse and ultimately FPS could even hold a stable 30FPS during fights. Since console players get mashed in with PC players anyway, might as well just play on PC with more fluid game play. I still play with controller on PC. At first I didn't see a difference, but now when I visit my friend and play on his PS4, it feels laggy and like playing like jelly. It feels so slow. The switch was definitely worth it.
My PC graphics card was like 10 years old so that was one thing I needed to update and the 1660 is a great budget graphics card for ~$220. Not to mention this 6GB version lets Fortnite cache all the graphics on the map using the command line option (-NOTEXTURESTREAMING: Disable texture streaming. Highest quality textures are always loaded.) so you don't see any warped buildings and you can set textures to High. Also use command line option (-USEALLAVAILABLECORES: Force the use of all available cores on the target platform.) for even better performance on your multicore CPU.

the other guy posted the rx 590, that's also a good choice. at that price i would go with the 590.

B550 motherboards go in and out of stock, but I was able to find a 1660 Super on Amazon. But also I do live in America - California, so it might be different for you. https://www.amazon.com/Gaming-GeForce-Overclocked-Graphics-TUF-GTX1660S-O6G-GAMING/dp/B081SPGMBD/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=1660+super+graphics+card&qid=1597324870&sprefix=1660&sr=8-9

Here is the GPU
1 points • idlehand
I appreciate the help.
In that price range, is the 1660 super my best bet? Is there anything better close in price, or is the 1660 super going to be my best bet around that price range. + or - $50 from the super isn't going to break the build for me. I see Asus GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6 GB TUF GAMING OC Video Card for $229

Yeah I have this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B081SPGMBD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_lFIgEbKSEZWWJ saved but it’s not on pcpartpicker right now. I could run the stock cpu cooler and if I feel like upgrading I could do so later.

The difference in Graphics card?
Can someone explain to me the difference between these two? I'm in the process of creating a build and my microcenter near me has this graphics card, but I was looking to get this graphics card. They look similar, and I want to know if there's a big difference before I place the order in.

I am no expert whatosever, so this might be the totally wrong choice, but what are your opinions on this card for solving my issue:
1 points • ParshP
Looks great but just to let you know, you have just the base 1660 in that build, not the 1660 Super. Here are the cards I was talking about,
Both are on newegg aswell. Both cards are great build quality, I would just get whatever one you think looks cooler.

Nice build! I was quite surprised the i5-9400F was such a nice CPU for its price, guess it dropped down a bit since release.
I think the only thing you could do to maybe shave a few dollars off this build would be to go with the gtx 1660 super (a literal 2fps difference for about 50 dollars less) https://www.amazon.com/Gaming-GeForce-Overclocked-Graphics-TUF-GTX1660S-O6G-GAMING/dp/B081SPGMBD/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Nvidia+GTX+1660+Super&linkCode=sl2&linkId=e03417851223876ef701f2e6f650301b&qid=1577928323&sr=8-1
And put that extra cash moneys you got from that to a 1tb SSD, from a more trustworthy brand like Samsung's 860 QVO 1TB for 110 dollars on amazon currently, unless you're really hurting for 2 tb's of hard drive space, because I currently use a 500gb sshd (yeah i know, stupid but it was a hand me down) and honestly, if I had a terabyte, I'd be more than well off for all of the games I usually play and then like, 3 or 4 more games I download to play with my friends then delete later on.
You said software development, depending on how heavy, you might want that 2tb, but it's not exactly video editing or game engineering so I think it'd be fine? It's just that hard drives are about 2x slower in most cases when it comes to more modern games that come out.
Also, spending 100 dollars on a 550-watt power supply is really iffy, I'd instead just go for a bronze at that point since you're only running a non-overclockable processor and a GPU that can fit in a prebuilt

Some say that mined cards aren't really bad, but I suppose it's better not to risk it.
I was looking at that unopened 2060 and apparently MSI Ventus xs has bad cooling, so I'm not sure I want to repeat this again .
And yeah, as a matter of fact I was looking into gtx 1660 supers. They start at 220 eur, with 2 year warranty. One gtx 1660s gigabyte gaming oc (3 fan) even has 3 year warranty, though it's 250 eur link. The cheapest double fan is gtx 1660s gigabyte oc at 230 eur link. Similarly priced are Zotac link ,and Palit link ,Asus TUF link
I would buy from a local Internet store, not amazon.
Ideally, I need to get a gpu before Cyberpunk 2077 comes out, which is Nov 19th. And I should receive some cash from Unemployment Services (my country is giving 200 eur a month until 2021 to all unemployed adults due to covid-19). Though, the very same institution is giving free access to all Coursera courses until 2021, and it'd be better to study on a PC.

Here's some links that may help. pairing the 1600 af with an 1660 card will give you the performance you want and even with the inflated price on the cpu you're still under budget

I make suggestions on this every couple of weeks - maybe I should contact the mods and try and build a good sticky. Idk.
My recommendation is that you buy an inexpensive but capable used laptop. Use the extra money for either extra peripherals (nice monitor/speakers) or even a separate well equipped desktop or similar.
Look at something with a decent range i5 or i7 in the \~2.8 ghz range, 16 gb ram, and a good SSD. That will handle whatever you throw at it from schoolwork. Examples would be mid range Thinkpads, (T430,T480) Dell Latitude E7480 series, etc. Don't spend a ton of money here - even used you don't get a lot of value per dollar from laptops, and you'll be annoyed if you drop it and crack the screen on a laptop that is expensive to repair. (hence why thinkpads and dells are simpler - abundant spare parts)
Assuming you went for the 7480, you can assume you've spent in the \~$500 range. If you want to pick up a good monitor/speakers, that is your call. Your other option (and one I personally prefer) is picking up a decent desktop to pair with it so you have a good home system and can just leave your laptop in your bag/gear you bring to class. I would pick something like this:
This desktop is very decent entry level for the price. You can upgrade the CPU/memory inexpensively in the future if desired, and if you are into gaming, throw something like a GTX 1660 Super video card into it and it will handle anything you want:
Video Card: (\~$225)
Your last options are actual selection of monitor and peripherals. I use Klipsch R-15PM speakers and an LG34GK950F monitor, but they are pricey. I would look at the following options:
Peripherals: (\~$300 total)
Essentially you can either go for just the laptop plus decent peripherals and spend about \~$900, or include the desktop too and spend about \~$1500. Go with whichever suits you, both will work.
In regards to your questions about software - I believe most if not all engineering software is available either as student licenses directly from the school, or you can apply for free student licenses from the software manufacturer using your school email. I'm an EE student and have had to get licenses for CAD software from time to time and didn't have any issue. The exceptions I explicitly know about used to be for Matlab - but as of start of this online-only curriculum the school issued volume licenses to everyone which solves that issue.
You also get valid personal licenses for Win10 and some other miscellaneous software, but it is somewhat annoying to access from the service they offer them from.
I've been building computers/media centers/NAS systems for almost 20 years now, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. With the shutdown I'm mostly just working from home and relaxing anyway, so pricing out stuff like this is fairly relaxing. Hope it helps, and welcome to CPP.

These two seem to have the same price ($239.99) when I ordered one of them, few days ago.
I'm waiting for the Ryzen 7 3700X to drop in price, and soon, I think they all will.

Option 1 (cheaper with 1660):
CPU - Ryzen 5 2600X Good, powerful budget option. You may also want to consider the 3600 for a slightly higher clock speed.
Graphics card - GTX 1660 Super One of the best $/framerate ratios out there. Great for solid 1080p gaming.
Mobo - B450 Tomahawk Max Great quality mobo, a ton of upgradability and good value.
Option 2 (pricier with 3070):
CPU - Ryzen 7 3700X Just a powerful processor at a good price. Will ensure no bottlenecks with the rest of the build
Graphics Card - RTX 3070 Extremely powerful graphics card, good for 4k60/1440p120 with raytracing and DLSS
Mobo - B550 Tomahawk A newer version of the B450 Tomahawk, with support for upcoming Ryzen gen 4 chips and PCIe Gen 4
Also, you'll need new RAM. For option 1, go for at least 8Gb @ 3000Mhz DDR4. For option 2, at least 16Gb @ 3200Mhz DDR4.
Unfortunately, there isn't really anything better you could get for an LGA 1155 socket since its pretty old. I've been in a similar position before, where I couldn't really upgrade my PC without getting a new one. I just had to take the hit and get a new one, and it seems you'll have to do the same.
