Just like in the title I have a Celeron G1630 2.8Ghz now I want a graphics card prevent the CPU from bottleneck the GPU, please I need a graphics card to play games at medium settings, I'm tired of playing games at low settings and low resolution :pfff: maybe in the future I will upgrade my CPU to Pentium G4560 3.2Ghz.

    A GTX 1050/RX 460/RX 560 would be a good pairing imo for that. A GTX 1050 Ti would probably be as high as i would go on the Celeron but you could opt for slightly higher like a RX 570 if you plan on upgrading to a G4560 at some point in the future for sure. But both the first cards are great to spend little, have minimal bottlenecking and capable of around Medium settings in most modern games, the 1050 Ti and above can push High but your CPU will hold it back in most instances. Hope this helps :)
  2. What about GTX 650, R7 240 and R7 250? They're low price around 50-43 USD in Vietnam currency, I might consider buying one of these cards

    They are a lot weaker than the cards i mentioned earlier but if it has to be out of those cards, the R7 250 and GTX 650 are fairly even but the R7 250 typically pulls a fraction ahead on average from the few benchmarks I've seen.

    The RX 550 or GT 1030 would be good choices if you are trying to spend as little as possible, see how much you can find them for. In older generations, the GTX 750 Ti and R7 370 are often priced fairly cheap and also not bad depending on the prices.
  4. If I were you I would definitely go for GTX 650.
    I think that this GPU can run most of the games on low-medium settings.
