The lower mid-range section of the GPU market is dominated by AMD’s Radeon RX 570, 580 and the GeForce GTX 1660 as each offers excellent value for 1080p60 gaming, providing ~10-20% more performance than their predecessors at the same price point.

So, if you’re looking for a discrete graphics card to game at 1080p with a budget of around Rs. 15000, the Asus TUF Gaming GTX 1660 is by far the best option. It is on sale over at MDComputers for Rs. 15,999 (Link). It is equipped with a 2.3 slot cooler which will allow for cool and quiet operation. Thanks to additional cooling the core has been clocked slightly higher than reference specs.

Other Graphics Card deals to look at….

MSI RX 570 8GB Armor OC for Rs 14,299/- (Link)
An 8GB RX 570 will allow you to play at 1080p60 and even try some 1440p gaming (assuming you don’t mind playing below 60fps). The 8GB frame buffer can also handle High-resolution 4k/8k Texture mods without breaking a sweat.

Galax GTX 1650 EX (1-Click OC) 4GB for Rs11,145/- (Link)
We generally do not recommend the GTX 1650 over an RX570 but the Galax 1-Click OC model is a great option if you are looking for a power-efficient GPU that can still do some light 1080p gaming.

Gigabyte RX 560 OC 4GB for Rs 8,499/- (Link)
This recommendation is for people who are extremely tight on budget but still want a GPU that can at least do some gaming. It doesn’t provide the best value but is still the best and the only GPU worth purchasing below Rs 10,000.
It is an ideal pick for people who own 768p monitors, which is still the second-most popular resolution according to Steam, or for folks who run really old/weak CPUs like AMD FX 6-core, Intel i5 3rd gen or below, i3 7th gen or below, etc. It can also do some 1080p gaming on low settings. For eye candy, just turn the textures all the way up and the 4GB VRAM will handle it like a champ.
