The demand for a good mid-range graphics card is increasing day by day among gamers, video editors, 3D graphics renderers, etc. Moreover, now it’s the perfect time to buy a new graphics card for your PC because the market has now become more stable than before. The only problem with upgrading to a new card right now is that it’s entirely possible that prices will continue to drop even further. Naturally, this is just what happens to products that have been on the market for enough time. For users who don’t currently have a build and desperately need or want one, buying a GPU for a build right now is still a great option, but one that’s likely to become even cheaper as 2023 just started and things are starting to get interesting.

AMD RX 6650 XT

The best budget king graphics card in the market right now. It is simply an overclocked 6600 XT with faster memory. The cores are clocked -2% higher and the GDDR6 memory is 9% faster, both of which have increased the board power rating by 13% to 180 watts. It’s the best 1080p graphics card money can buy. You will not be dissatisfied with its cooling performance. One major flaw with AMD graphics card is that it’s not good for editing but who cares if you are a hardcore gamer. It’s a beast of a card. We highly suggest you buy this card.

This mid-range graphics card is our favorite out of these 5. Oh boy! It’s a good graphics card without breaking the buck and its worth every penny. It’s a good graphics card for 1440p gaming too. It has plenty of VRAM for the future also. You can do streaming with NVENC encoder as well as gaming with no compromise in performance. But keep in mind you have to invest a good PSU behind a such a good graphics card.

  • Nvidia RTX 3050

If you don’t want to go with AMD RX 6500xt than Nvidia RTX 3050 would be the best alternative for you. Some specialist (including us) feels like it’s a much better graphics than RX 6500xt but you have to remember that its priced little higher than the 6500xt and consume more power. It may be not an ideal graphics card for a too old computer system. It comes with plenty of VRAM and Full PCIe 4.0 x16 connection. We highly recommend you buy this graphics card.
