I'm currently into my second year with my first ever PC build. I mainly built the machine for content creation (Photoshop, After Effects, etc.), but have shifted focus to playing video games. I've been under the impression that my graphics card is somewhat outdated for current popular titles. The games I'm playing are: Final Fantasy XV, Apex Legends, and Overwatch. I usually turn my graphics for every game all the way down because I dislike fluctuating fps and I'm sensitive to input lag at various frame rates; but even then, I'll still get lag in important game play situation and it sucks playing at a lower resolution than my monitor (1920x1080 @60Hz) for the benefit of more stability.
My main specs are:
CPU: Intel i5-6500 GPU: Radeon RX 470, ROG Strix Gaming (4GB) Motherboard: ASUS H110-M/E M.2 RAM: 16GB
Assuming that upgrading my graphics card would be the best solution to what I've described, which GPUs are reasonably priced and desirable in the current market? I'm just looking for something that would fit my needs! Thank you, and I appreciate any help offered.
