    Any tips on upgrading GPU it this age where everything is just... marginally better than cards 3 years ago.

    I have R7 370 4GB OC Strix that runs quite well in 1080p, but is struggling to keep up with new games... but. I recall that I paid 200€ for the 370 back in 2017 and looking at the new cards in same price range now, there is not much of an improvement. The heck I'm suppose to do? Going for 500€ range feels stupid, since the added value by performance just gets worse.

    Casual gaming at 1080p and steady 30-60fps is enough for me so buying a overkill vega 64 OC would just be too much.

    What happened? It's like gamers are forced to buy "flagships" and rest of the consumers are just completely ignored or scammed to get "next gen" that is actually same as before.

      Although with that said, I bought a whole PC for $200 Aussie dollars (our dollars are about as worthless as yours) about a year ago. It has a pleb tier i3 4360, and only 8gb of Vengeance DDR3, but it also came with a 4gb GTX770 Gainward Phantom GPU. It's a belter of a GPU for the price, and despite the rig being ghetto-tastic, it plays all my games at higher frame rates and higher graphics settings than my old PS4. Sold the PS4 for $150 with no hard drive (Took out the 2TB I upgraded the PS4 to, for use as a storage drive in the PC, and the PS4's original 500GB drive is now in use in my old Fat PS2, running custom OS and stuff), so really the PC owes me nothing, as it has just replaced the PS4.
      Cheap second hand stuff can be great, provided you find a good seller. I bought my cheap old rig from a friend of a friend, hence the great price.
