  • Fortnite tends to run better with Nvidia GPUs based on benchmarking I've seen done by Techspot, with a GTX 970 being within 2% of an R9 Fury, and slaughtering its old competition the R9 390 by something like 24%. This being the case, I'd be recommending something like a GTX 770/680, or if those are too much locally, dropping down to a GTX 670/760. HOWEVER, all those cards are limited by the 2GB frame buffer, even at 1080p, so I'd be remiss not to mention the HD 7970/7950 as alternatives, especially for GTA V where that extra VRAM can come in pretty handy for running higher texture settings. Someone actually accepted my offer for the equivalent of $47US on a GTX 670 a few weeks ago (didn't take, but that's besides the point) so that would look to be a pretty budget-conscious choice. Performance should be a tiny bit worse than a 1050ti.

    If you're limited by power or really want to be a cheapskate, you could try a GTX 660 since it will be pretty cheap and should only need a single 6 pin connector, as opposed to all the others I listed which usually run a 6+8.
