Video Cards

Hi. Looking for suggestions on what to get for a PC video card for a new build PC. I missed out on all the recent ~$150 RX 570 deals and can't find anything similar for a decent price. Not a gamer (although I may try out a game or two once I get a video card), nor do I plan on mining for crypto-currencies.

I have no preference when it comes to Nvidia vs. AMD, and I'm clueless with all the choices and models available out there.

Any suggestions?

If you're not going to game on it you may as well just get a motherboard with Intel graphics. They've come a long way.

That $150 Rx570 with 2 games, that sale happened atleast 2 times if not 3 times. If you can wait then I am sure it will pop up again.

I already bought a Ryzen 5 2600, so I can't go with on-board graphics now. I guess I'll have to wait out the ongoing deals.

Are there any older generation video cards still worth buying that wouldn't be useless in a year or two?

rx570 is already below mid end. It is competent at 1080 resolutions though. No worries about getting a 570 deals because they really have to clear this out and the sooner the better.

useless for what ? you said you were not gaming. If you want to do videoediting, cuda is great, so get a Nvdia card.

But a video card made by EVGA. Nobody even comes close when it comes to their warranty and customer service.

Can anyone recommend any other lines of video cards to look out for or to avoid? I really need to finish putting this PC together and I can't wait around for any potential sales.
