The only reason that it’s not higher on our AMD graphics cards list is its price. It could be cheaper, especially since the Super RTX cards that Nvidia just rolled out.

It’s in the mid-range level where AMD traditionally shines, and the Radeon RX 570 is a perfect example of why. This is an extremely affordable AMD graphics card, but one that’s capable of running many AAA PC titles at high settings and still reach 60 fps. It’s not quite as powerful as the AMD Radeon RX 590, but you’re saving quite a bit of cash for an impressive performance. Just remember to go for an 8GB model, rather than the 4GB.

AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT

The AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT is plenty powerful for gamers on the budget.

Designed with 1080p gaming in mind, the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT is plenty powerful for gamers on the budget. Sure, it isn’t the most powerful graphics card out there, but it’s powerful enough for its price point, and an easy choice when put up against the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 for the value. With this GPU, you can run most games at 60fps, though it might struggle with extremely demanding titles like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Metro Exodus. If you want the best budget option for 1080p, this is one of the best AMD graphics cards for you.

If you’re on a budget, picking up a pricey graphics card doesn’t really make a lot of sense – especially when there are a few budget AMD graphics cards out there. Take the AMD Radeon RX 560, for example. We’ll be straight with you – this is not the most powerful GPU on hand right now. However, when you’re spending as little as a hundred bucks in the US, it’s hard to complain.
