    CPU: Intel i5-7400 3 GHz Quad Core 14nm Kaby Lake Socket LGA1151 Desktop CPU
    RAM: 16GB DDR4 2400MHz
    HDD: 256GB Samsung Evo SSD.
    PSU: 550W
    Current GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti ZT-P10510B-10L 4GB GDDR5 128-bit OC PCI-E 3.0 Desktop Graphics Card

    It really depends on your budget but currently cards are way over priced. Would maybe look at a 1660 super

    You best bet to get something decent is going secondhand. Once my 3060ti arrives, I will sell my 1060 6gig for about R4500. You may laugh at that but these cards are selling within minutes on Carbonite. Why because it may be a old card but at 1080P and decent hardware they range from anywhere from 60fps to over 100fps in most current games on high settings. My card holds up in Star Citizen and that the moment due to the game still development that is amazing. So look around.

    You would want a 1660 super or a rtx2060 but they are R8k-9k under the current condition. Otherwise a second hand 1070 should do the trick but I dont think you will see one for R3k.
