Question about ASUS TUF GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING OC 6GB GDDR6


Recommended Posts

Hey, 
Buying a new computer with a limited budget and due to all the shortages in the country, she has to compromise on this video card for the next six months. 
 https://www.asus.com/il/Graphics-Cards/TUF-GTX1660S-O6G-GAMING/

* I have read here and there people who have complained about heating problems of tuf 1660 models, but what I noticed distinguishes this model (apart from the overcooling) is that there are heatpipes (?) Where it says - "DirectCUII", what is the chance that it can solve the heating problem? 
* If not, how can I minimize warming?
* Will the video card be ok with 5 5600x?

I do not quite understand the severity so eat a little film on it because I feel I bought it in a kind of "pressure" because of all the shortcomings and delusional prices. I would really love your help, thank you : )

Some details are missing, what is the purpose of the computer? If the goal is games then I would not buy this video card with 5600X but I would go down to 10400 F and buy 3060TI (preferably from Niagara at ~ 2200) and thus you will get significantly more performance, but again it very much depends on what exactly the computer uses.
Give a little more details about the specs you planned to buy and its uses.

Thanks for the answer, the computer will be used mainly for gaming and studies, I bought the card for 1400 NIS which it currently fits in my budget in relation to the cards that are "available" in the country. Any other card that was on a budget like 2070,2060s, 1080ti and the like are averages (?) Gone. I came across a 3060ti that involves computer assembly but at the cost of +3500 I think this is excessive for this card maybe I'm wrong. 

2200 in Niue? And how much tax is involved?

 

Regarding specifications: 

ryzen 5 5600x,

 Motherboard: b550m prime / b550m d3sh

Corsair Vengeance 16G (2 × 8G) 

A-DATA 1T swordfish

Antec 700W - 80 Plus - 120mm silent fan

Chassis and cooling have not yet been decided

And the video card I mentioned here - tuf 1660 super oc gaming I was hoping it could be used by me for the next six months until maybe everything balances out a bit and I can buy a better video card at a fair price. 

 

The thing is that I'm pretty closed on the CPU because I prefer to finish with what I can now in terms of upgrades, believe that in the future I will add more Etc if necessary .. and that's why I thought of eventually compromising on this card for a maximum of a year. Is there a chance for a bottleneck in their combination? And would you still recommend giving up / leaving the video card? 

And in case I decide to stick with this video card, what a processor Would you recommend combining with it? Can 5 3600 fit?

If I had already bought the video card I would have stayed with it, in terms of the price of the 3060 TI ordered from Niagara there are models that are 2200 after shipping and taxes, ie 2200 including everything (last week were not).


Even an I5 10400F processor will be able to take full advantage of this video card, but if you are planning to upgrade a video card for another six months then of course it is irrelevant.

I did not understand, so the specification has already been bought? Or just the video card?

These New, there will be no problem with them with the ticket you bought.

But if cost-benefit is important to you then I would base specs on the i5 10600KF processor (more powerful than the i5 10400f offered at 15%).

The Raisen 5600X is more powerful but its price is less likable

With any video card below 3080 and with a screen above 1080P the difference will be exactly 0%

2200 including taxes .. Too bad I was under pressure and bought fast 😞 

And irrelevant means the 5600 x will work fine for the next maximum year with the card in gaming and there will be no problems? Because I came to terms with the fact that the level of performance will not be wow for now ..

Only the video card was bought and should arrive hopefully next week,

Just left to choose which processor because I called one of the computer stores and tried to get the 1660s I asked and he replied that 5600x and this card are not suitable because of the gap between them and since then it resonates with me. So yes it is important for me to consult with different people.

My preference is The truth is that the i5 also comes out at the same price of 5 3600, I'm sorry .. another 500 NIS and I'm already buying something I will not have to upgrade (5600x) 

 

 

So how about, go for the 5600x or 3600x?

The processor has almost no effect on performance in games with Under NIS 4000 as long as it is enough at the minimum and currently the minimum is 6 cores.
I would never go for the 3600 X, if already the 3600 but it is also no longer very lucrative due to shortcomings and price increase.
If you want to be more future proof (but again, the CPU has almost no effect on game performance unless you have low resolution and a very very powerful video card) you can go for the 10600 KF which is better than the 3600 and currently cheaper than it, or save and go for the 10400 F.
