Hi

My current config:
AMD Ryzen 5 1400
MSI B450M BAZOOKA
8GB of ram 3000 MHz DDR4
1TB of HDD
120GB M.2 SSD
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

Suddenly I would like to change the graphics card to change my config suddenly I think I would take a Radeon RX 5500 XT 8G or an rtx.
So is it good otherwise you will advise me what?

Thank you.

Hey PraZerR, welcome to the forums.

As the owner of a 1050 Ti myself and being both an Nvidia and AMD owner, I would avoid purchasing a 5500 XT as you own a 1400 CPU.

The 5500XT runs on a PCIe 4.0 x8 bus and the 1400 CPU supports 16x on PCI 3.0. This means that the GPU you are intending on purchasing will only run at x8 on the 3.0 bus, losing half the bandwidth.

I'd recommend a 1660 Super which will run at 16x on 3.0. It can be found on PCCG for pretty much the same price as a 5500 XT and will be faster by 6-7 frames per second across the board
