Modern games, like MW2019, require beefy cards if you want reasonably high settings and to avoid heavy lag. I would go with their 'recommended' spec just to start (in this case a 1660) but even their recommended cards tend to be lacking. However the 1660 would be in that range price-wise as a mid-range card.

1660 Super or 1660 TI would be a good place to start looking.  They bench about the same with the TI version being about 3% faster or so.

For nvidia cards the $400 US £360 2060 Super is the best bang for the buck, It performs Better than the $500 US £450 2070 but not quite as good as the $550-$600 US £495-£540 2070 super. I would not piss around with the 1660 when you can get a card with 40-50% better performance for only £90 more.

The Vega 64 cards are selling for $250-$300 US used on ebay if you want to try to sell yours.  Which sucks because they were around $600 new when I was looking to buy a new card. I ended up buying a RX 480 instead because I'm a cheap ass. lol I would try to sell it if if it doesn't do what you need it to do.    

 

Great point @BoomSlang. They are a power hungry card. If your Power Supply isn't up to the task it will cause problems. @Markoff What power supply are you running? Please don't tell me it's a Thermaltake TR2 lol. I have a Thermaltake TR2 850 Watt power supply sitting in a box in the closet. It says it's 850w but it had problems running a R9 290x which has similar power consumption to your Vega 64. 

 

lol Check out the power consumption of a Vega 64 under load. It draws almost 2x what a 1080ti does under full load. 448 watts under full load.

Corsair HX and AX series are the best that you can get but they cost quite a bit more than there RM,CX and TX Enthusiast grade power supplys. And for good reason. The 80+ certification is a big deal when choosing a power supply for a system. If you build a decent system with a power hungry card you need a damn good power supply with a high 80+ rating.  The Vega 64 is a very very powerful card but it requires a very good power supply to power it. A 650 watt power supply is not enough for your card + all of the other stuff in your computer when under load.

I noticed something when loading into a map in Warzone.  My GPU usage goes to 100% for a few seconds and my fans ramp up as well. It must be using the video card for most of the rendering. My CPU usage stays at around 20-25% even when in game. Kinda makes sense when you look at the minimum CPU requirements. The Intel Core i3-4340 is only a Dual core chip with hyperthreading.

Cheers guys for the info my psu is a cool -master  v1050 

 

This one?  https://www.newegg.com/cooler-master-rs-a50-spha-d3-silent-pro-hybrid-1050w/p/N82E16817171062

That should be more than enough.  What driver are you using?  I've been using 20.1.3 and it runs everything really well. I'm not going to update it until I absolutely have to. 

 

Give it a try and see if it works for you. Direct download link for 20.1.3 Win 10 64 driver. https://drivers.amd.com/drivers/win10-radeon-software-adrenalin-2020-edition-20.1.3-jan29.exe

 

I tried the newest driver which is 20.2.2 and was having strange latency issues with it in 1 of the games that I play so I ran DDU and put my slightly older driver back on. DDU is Display Driver Uninstaller. It will uninstall and remove all traces of the old drivers that were left behind by previous installations. It's a good thing to use before installing a new display driver. You can get it here. https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

Newegg has the RTX 2070 for $399, I have a 2070.  RTX 2070 Super goes for $499.  Just got to decide on how much card you want and how much you want to spend.... then go for it.
