Hey! I need a GPU for my computer, I used to have a GTX 1050Ti Windforce but it stoped working and it's out of shop warranty (I used it for about 2y and a half, manufacturer(Gigabyte) warranty is 3y but send it to them costs me 25€ and It's too much mess) so I prefear to get a new one, and I was thinking about trying an AMD (I could take another Nvidia too if it fits what I'm looking to spend, which's between 100€ and 170€) I use my computer to work and for games (I'm fine to run them at 1080p - 1440p 60FPS) EDIT: I'm fine with 1080p/60 so priece keeps in the range I said

My Computer:
Motherboard:
Asus Z170-P
CPU: Intel Core i5-7600 3.5GHz
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V Red DDR4 2400 PC4-19200 16GB 2x8GB
Power Supply: Owlotech GMPS Gaming 750W
Refrigeration: Cooler Master Hyper 212X

I did a little research and I found out that a RX 570 will fit pretty good with my cpu because it haves low bottleneck, here a picture:

I searched RX 570 and I found some options, and I was wondering which one is the best option and why, if you have a better suggestion for me, I'll appreciate it too!
I'm not english native so if you suggest anything It'll be so good if it was in amazon.es or in a shop called PcComponentes

Here the ones I saw:
Thanks in advance, and I also apologie if I did any mistake since as I said I'm not english native!

For 1440p/60 at ok settings you really want at least an RX 5600XT or RTX 2060 which both are way out of your price range.

Rx 580 smashes it for less

But OP you are still in warranty and talking about $25 to send it back for RMA when a new GPU will set you back at least $100-$150 for what you are looking at?

ummm there is a 580 on the list its worse...... Maybe you mean the 590 which is quite overpriced where he lives.

I would get a new power supply while youre at it too.

750W for €41 is an outright con. You might be thinking youre getting a great deal but you're lucky if that PSU can push 500W.

If something sounds too good to be true - it probably is. especially when it comes to power supplies - you want a good one otherwise you run the risk of burning your house down or frying everything thats hooked up to it.

a Seasonic S12-II 520W would of just cost a little more and would of powered everything comfortably with no risk of fire or frying.

I searched comments and opinions about Gigabyte warranty and they weren't so good tbh, I was like a full month trying to get the RMA but first they send me to Nvidia support, then nvidia sends me to Gigabyte, then Gigabyte sends me to the shop where I bought it claiming that the shop where I bought it (PcComponentes) haves to process the RMA, then PcComponentes send me to Gigabyte again, and then they tell me that I have to fill a RMA request and send my graphics card to germany (25€) and in case the issue is not included in the warranty I'll have to pay 25€ again if I want it back, I read in some commends that they try to avoid as much as they can to provide the reparation and if you send it you'll prolly just waste 25-50€ so I thought getting a new one was the better option

Yuo're right 1440p/60 might be too much for my price range, I'll be fine with 1080p/60 then, thanks!

Yeah owlotech is questionable at best and probably overrated.
