What games are good to try out a graphics card?

The last game I bought before my GTX 560 died was Fallout 4, is that still demanding enough?

I pumped up Shadow of War and did a test. Pretty much all that game is good for.

I barely play anymore so I haven't kept up with GPU specs but it seems like i've read GTA5 can bog down even some of the 10XX cards on the higher settings.

Did you get a new card?
A used GTX 1050 TI off of Ebay. I'm building a Frankenstein gaming machine. I received a riser cable for it today and planned to play some games and see how it does. Just High settings 1080P and I'll be happy.

Try witcher 3. That game can be pretty taxing with high settings and game of the year edition can be bought for 15 bucks in most GOG or steam sales.

Its also the best game I've ever played, which is a nice bonus.

I checked on Steam, and thought maybe the next time it was on sale. Checked Amazon and GOG ... GOG has it on sale for 70% off. $14.99. Snatched it right up. I was playing Fallout and Steam or Nvidia were using the resolution settings for the old 460. 1260x720. It didn't even do graphics check, had to crank up the settings manually. Works great so far.

Witcher 3 has always worked great for me but I've heard people have issues. 1080P with a 1050Ti should be very do able.

Also, you got it from GOG so 100% of the profit goes to CDProjekt instead of 70%. Good job!

Might also be a good time to play Witcher 2 or 1 if you never tried them. I love both games but witcher 1 can be an acquired taste for some people.

I think I owned or pirated the original Witcher. I think the problem people had with it was they didn't understand the lore. Eastern European stuff didn't make into Grimm Fairy Tales.

Most people say they didn't like the click based combat where you had to build a sort of rhythm with your sword play. I never minded it.

Witcher III is 32gb!!! I've been downloading for Two hours and only have 16gb. I should have used the NIC instead of WIFI.

Doom is 60GB and Metro Exodus was 52G or 56GB. The future is large downloads!

I'm playing the Witcher on 1080P on Ultra Settings and it looks amazing. I noticed a few skips here and there, but nothing too unsettling. I could probably play at this setting but I'm going to bump it down to high settings. I can't believe I'd forgotten basic Keyboard stuff, like crouch, E for action, and shit.
