Something like this is worth the difference in cost imo.... assuming it fits in your case.... if that is a single dimm of ram its going to cause you some issues.

As far as 1650 super goes you probably gain more from overclocking and it uses less power I really like this model

Otherwise they're pretty much identical in performance right now but I would probably go with the card with more vram.

1650 super for sure. Maybe you lose some slight performance with high vram usage, but you're about twice as efficient - enjoy not pumping 150+W of heat into your case.

Personally I would go for the RX 5700, but if that does not fit in your budget, the RX 5500 is a nobrainer.

What's your budget? ~$170? Can get 1070's for a bit more used. If you're stuck new, buy a 1650S.

I would vote for the 1650 Super.

Power efficient, cooler temperatures, and better drivers.

Also since you have an average power supply, the power efficiency of the 1650 Super should remove that from being a potential problem

If you don't mind going preowned

The GTX 1070 or Vega 56 is stellar options

At 1080p the 1650 Super is marginally quicker but literally only by 4% according to our review of the card but at peak load it has roughly half the power consumption of the 580 so unless you can get the 580 for considerably cheaper and/or you can get it cheaper in 8GB guise then for me it would be the 1650 Super.

Considering you can pick a used ebay 580 up for $100 and the 1650 super will cost you nearly twice as much, is a no brainer or as others have pointed out you can also snag some used 1070's and vega 56 for nearly the same cost as a new 1650 super, there aren't many used 1650 super available so I've taken this into account when quoting new and used prices.
