    Forget about prices you provide

  2. Cezar Hirsescu on December 1, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    Watching this before the 30 series and 6000 series cards. Can’t wait to see the 2021 list very soon

  3. Alex Hostetter on December 1, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    Honestly you are wrong.

    The best budget, for your money, then and even now is the gtx 1660.

  4. Wuh U looking at on December 1, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Cant wait for early 2021

  5. SpeedSoft on December 1, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    If you’re looking for a cheap graphics card under $100, the 660 is pretty good.

  6. Ghostwind Toys, LLC on December 1, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    OK here it goes: I have an AMD A10-7700k Radion R7, 10 Compute Cores 4C+6G 3.40 GHZ CPU in a HP 700 Envy with an MS-7906 Ver:1 motherboard and an open PCIE X16 slot. This computer is used to run Fusion 360. Should I add a video card?

  7. justin gant on December 1, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Hey man been watching your videos for a while now and going to build my first gaming pc. What graphics would you recommen me getting ? I have intel.i7 10700k and the msi mag b460 board. With 16gb ram. I dont have much money but I’m willing to pay my parts off ?

  8. James Newman on December 1, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Linus : "You still got christmas money right?"

    Me : *Doesn’t get money for christmas nor daily chores

  9. Robert Garcia on December 1, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    ok but what do I go with when everything’s out of stock?

  10. James de Blois on December 1, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    make one for late 2020 now because of the new releases

  11. Aayush Kumar on December 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Who else just came here to see who has bought 2080s right before the launch of new rtx cards

  12. David Desfosses on December 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    “Twists and turns for 2020”?!?! So it’s your fault!

  13. steve0h2004 on December 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    As of right now, everything seems to be 100 bucks more than what was mentioned in the video AND out of stock. What the hell happened (haven’t been keeping up with tech news lately)? Was looking forward to upgrade my PC, but now gotta wait for price to go back down on GPU’s.

  14. Kaleb deschaine on December 1, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    xbox > PC

  15. Laughing Man on December 1, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    Linus sounds like he inhales oxygen and exhales helium. Either that or his testicles are too small to be detected by modern science.

  16. Fade Harry on December 1, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    I’ve got the RTX 70 super

  17. MrHarumakiSensei on December 1, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    Oh yeah, 2020 brought some twists and turns alright!

  18. Vytautas pakenas on December 1, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    i have gtx 1650super 4gb and ryzen 3 3100 and it only 462 dollars

  19. Henry Playz on December 1, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    2021 16k with the rtx 4090

  20. Mahdi Sakr on December 1, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    3:17 can I have the source for that exact chart. Thank you!

  21. Eric Montiel on December 1, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    I hate people. They literally bought all of these and are being sold at a higher price in ebay and amazon. FFS man

  22. Zorro9129 on December 1, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    I got a 5600 XT because no sellers I could locate were selling a 5700 without the XT, and a 5700 XT was beyond my budget. If you’re in this situation the 5600 XT works great, and if you’re lucky you can pick up the Sapphire Pulse version with triple cooling fans.

  23. PoloFNBR on December 1, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    You have no idea how this year is gonna go, Linus.

  24. rudra samrat Bhardwaj on December 1, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Can i use ray tracing on gtx 1660 super? How?

  25. Gian Rayandayan on December 1, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Bought a 2060 as an upgrade to my 730 and it is so worth it, this GPU will last me 3-4 years. 2070 and above GPU are 35%-40% more expensive in my country so a 2060 is the best bang for the buck here.

  26. Allan Kurian on December 1, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    Is the RTX 2060 Max Q
    Good for Architects ?
    They use 1080p more often !

  27. Ganesh Karhale on December 1, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    I have mini atx case so I will need a low profile graphics card that can run 1080 p monitor with 1080 p netflix in windows 10.

  28. Geo1310 on December 1, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    rip people who got a rtx 2080 super before the rtx 3070 was announced

  30. Fade Harry on December 1, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    What ever you do don’t buy the GDDR 50 everyone who bought it is having PC crash problems I had it couple days ago my PC kept crashing didn’t know what to do we change the graphics card to an arty X 70 super works so much better all the crashing of stops

  31. Doug Harlow on December 1, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    I value your expert opinion. I have the below computer and want to start gaming. Also, my Dell™ UltraSharp™ 2407WFP monitor stop working. So I was wondering if my computer would support/compatible with a Dell Monitor S3220DGF or a Dell S2721DGF and “if needed”, what parts to upgrade in my PC. Thanks

    A few specs of my Dell desktop XPS 8930 computer:
    7th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.5 GHz)
    NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX 1070 with 8GB GDDR5 Graphics Memory
    16GB (2X8GB) 2400Mhz DDR4 Memory, up to 64GB
    256GB M.2 PCIe x4 SSD + 2TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive
    Chipset: Intel 2370
    460W PSU
    Windows 10 Pro (64bit) English
    802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.2
    Integrated with WAVE MAXXAudio Pro

  32. The drum knight on December 1, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    All I wanna know is which gpu do I need for 1440p max settings?

  33. Francis Stapp on December 1, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    2020 having some twists and turns hmm haha it was a different time a simpler time

  34. James Walker on December 1, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    What’s a good computer to purchase for online gaming

  35. FineSniper 2188 on December 1, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    Lol I have a Rtx 3080

  36. 1 on December 1, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    This video hasn’t aged well

  37. Icewalow Come on December 1, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    I have a Sapphire 5600xt, great card for the price.

  38. Laffyraffy on December 1, 2020 at 10:00 pm


  39. Crb on December 1, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    I can’t find a 1660 or 1650 for under 300

  40. Sharcc on December 1, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    "And maybe a few twists and turns for 2020"

    *oh no.*

  41. Hamas Dar on December 1, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    hey linus
    can you please tell me which card is better from these two
    gtx 1650 super or gtx 1660

  42. Gun Slinger on December 1, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Is a used gigabyte GTX 1070 8gb worth or should I go for a slightly used 1650 super sc ultra?

  43. Reuben McDonnell on December 1, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    bru i bought first pc and bought it came with a 1650 geforce gtx but now every time i play a game it restarts the pc

  44. Hansel shajal on December 1, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Newegg is a good place to look for GPU and CPU just if you live in india like me i dont recommend due to a GTX 1080 being 158,149 rupees and no i am not joking if you search it on newegg india its the one you get now maybe it will change later.

  45. cruchy salad on December 1, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    i’m looking for a 3080 GPU but right now there way to overpriced like i can by 4 pre-build computers for one of them

  46. yeah no on December 1, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    1650 super went up quite a bit. When is a good time to buy?

  47. E C on December 1, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Can someone advise me to buy for pc Optlplex 7070 32GB ram? Please

  48. Fanuel Girma on December 1, 2020 at 10:16 pm

  49. John f Kennedy on December 1, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    10 months and I still don’t know if it can run crisis

  50. Itzz-Milk :D on December 1, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Love how the Gtx 1080 Ti is more expensive than literately any other Graphics card.
