For 10k you should be looking for something like a 2600/x with a Rx580 or 1650ish (You should be able to get 60fps in most games on high)

Well the 2060 is a lot more expensive than the 1650 / 1650 s and the 1650 can still give decent price-performance
GTX 1650 is overpriced, under powered rubbish. It's got probably the worst price / performance of any card
Not something you would put in a R 10K gaming PC.

You do have a valid point. Will hold off selling it until I can get a better gpu on it.
a 10k build usually has to have minimum rx 580 or 1060 6g and above depending on the other components... even worse with ryzen and how it disrupted the cpu market considering a 10k build can feature
ryzen 5 3600 (3600) or 2700x(3000) 16gb ddr4 3200 (for 1300k) rx 580 (2k) and a b450 board for 1k psu 1k

1650 is the biggest load of junk.The 1650 Super.
The 1650 Super is almost at the same price as the 1650 and in most games is well over 25%

RTX2060 if you buy new retail is already more than half of the 10K you want to spend.

Will hit the 10K spot.RX480 is still a really awesome card for 1080 gaming.
