Is the GTX 1660 TI for you?
As far as performance is concerned the GTX 1660 TI fairs well in 1080p and 1440p gaming on fairly decent settings.
By the way, the GTX 1660 TI is the same price as an RX 590.
Now with just decent performance and with no ray tracing capability I’d rather save $50 and buy an RX 580.

Or, I’d rather stretch my budget a bit and add $50 and buy an RTX 2060 graphics card.
