I end up buying $400 cards for power consumption reasons, I don't have air conditioning and for about 8 months of the year I really don't want a 320W graphics card dumping that heat into my room.
I pretty much always buy the lower end/budget or maybe entry mid range cards since they are/were enough for my needs/standards for 2-3 years so far.
Power consumption does matter to me somewhat but the cards I'm buying/interested in don't draw too much anyway, as long as its max ~200W its alright with me.
My RX 570 is slowly aging out but if I have to then I can keep it this year and a bit more. 'not playing anything too demanding nor plan to this year and 40-50 FPS is fine with me'
8 months?This 3-4 months of summer here is already more than I'm comfortable with since I don't have conditioning either.
