I have 2 Samsung C24FG70FQU and a RX 580 4gb oced to RX 590 speed

Old games with my i5 8400 runs fine, latest game i got (humble bundle) was grid 2 from 2013, great game and performance but if i want to go for a gtx 1660 ti (won't spend the money on a RTX 2060 that to much atm), would i be able to use freesync?

Is the diffrence really that high ?

But you would pay 280$ for a card that's about 10% faster ? An odd choice.

The difference would be bigger if i oc the gtx 1660 ti also if i sell my rx 580 i can get half the price of a gtx 1660 ti for it (low tier gtx 1660 ti).

The question wasn't if i would pay $280 for a card that's about 10% faster ?

It was if i could get freesync to work with a Samsung C24FG70FQU + gtx 1660 ti

As i see it, it's more than 10%

i have the low tier Gigabyte OC 6G ... (GV-N166TOC-6GD) ... compared to GTX 980, i think it is faster... and cheaper... i paid 650CAN for the zotac gtx980 AMP! extreme... and was never satified with it, or two of them in SLI.
it was 380CAN for the GTX1660ti.

i was able to Overclock the gtx1660ti to 1640g and 1750 (1875 with green flashes, so unstable)... in afterburner +140G, +1000M)

yes. if your monitor has freesync, the gtx1660ti can use it (setup is the same as if you have a gsync monitor...) but in the case of a gsync monitor it is enabled automatically... so the setup for a fresync monitor is the same as disabling the gsync monitor (just turn it on) ... the nvidia controlp ppanel does not really hidden the gsync item.

i have a ex3270u and gtx1660ti, freesync is amazing on gtaV... only problem is that is is a bit of a pain making sure that the frame rate does not go below 40Fps... and if if goes above about 70 screen starts to tear/ studder. and if you set vsync on... you need watch that the framerate does not go below 30, or you have to wait a minute for it to pop back

i do not know about the rx580... and only graphics card that i used later are gtx980's in SLI etc (just problems)... the interesting thing... it I have been as really happy with gigabyte gtx1660ti oc (280 CAN)... and of course with the ew3270u... i finally was able you get GTV running at 40 to 60+ fps on 4K, with just overclocking it (+140g, +1000m ) and using a i3-8350k at Stock with 2800ddr4 14x3,34,1t...
just had to set everything to veryhigh, but grass Q ULTRA (finally) and postfx to ultra.
(i also have a 2 gsync monitors (xb280hk, xb270hu)...

the only BIG problem (IMO) is that you CAN NOT install a AIO to cool the Card. (the reason is that GDDR6 is sensitive to the circuit board trace "roughness!!!" and warping... (reflection problems)... thus OC quality.

I don't change cooler on my gpu, i try to run the fans at lowest possible speed to keep it quiet (not always the same as the lowest rpm i can run the fans at)

i would check the samsung forums, I have a DELL freesync monitor that I know won't work with my GTX 1660ti*

*I can manually set the refresh rate in Nvidia control panel to the monitor maximum in resolution settings but according to Nvidia the monitor should have a G-Sync logo on it in Control Panel along with a check box for "enable G-Sync" that allows it to work with Free Sync.

You need a display port to get free-sync/G-syncish working.
Once plugged in reboot and you'll have the option in Nvidia control panel.

His monitor does have a display port so I would figure it would work but you never know. My monitor is HDMI and VGA only so I knew it would not work not that Nvidia offered the support when I purchased the monitor.

There is display port

I ask because my monitor wasnt on the first list

https://www.techspot.com/article/1779-freesync-and-nvidia-geforce/
My monitor isn't on the list either but it works. There's a test you can do to see if it syncs or you continue to get screen tears...
I kinda remember a list from users somewhere... I'll look for it and the screen test tool app.

Anyways here's that G-Sync Test
https://www.nvidia.com/coolstuff/demos#!/g-sync


If G-Sync works you get a nice smooth bar across the screen.
I think that's the best test.
