Finding the right GPU for a processor is not always easy. We have to check different compatibilities and sometimes we can make a mistake, and there we will have to send the product back, or else, we have bad luck damaging it.
It is for these reasons that we decided to check it all out for you (yes, including the compatibilities), and share this list of the top five GPUs for the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor.
Best GPU for AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
- MSI GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER
- Asus GeForce RTX 2060
- MSI Radeon RX 580
- Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3050 8GB
- Asus GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
GPU Compatibility with AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
To first verify that our GPU is compatible with our AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor, we have to know which socket is used to connect to the motherboard. In this case, the socket used is AM4, which means that we can only buy a certain type of motherboard. For example, the Asus Strix X570-E is compatible with the Ryzen 7 5800X.
This way we can now check which slots are available to integrate the GPU on the motherboard. The most common at the moment, and most up-to-date, are the PCIe slots. These are the ones you should look for.
GPU Compatibility with a Motherboard
As we mentioned above, your GPU must be compatible with the motherboard you have, or the one you will purchase. Generally, most graphics cards are compatible with any type of motherboard, and for that, motherboards must have some PCIe slots available. Check your motherboard type, and see which slots it has to integrate your new GPU.
Does the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X come with an integrated graphics card?
No, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor does not have an integrated GPU. Its architecture was not designed with the structure of a graphics card, which forces its users to add a GPU to their PC build.
Which could be good, because generally the GPU’s integrated in a processor, don’t usually have a great capacity for image processing. In this way, you can purchase any of the graphics cards specified above, which will give you great added value, especially for gaming.
