Just got my new build running and now I want to pick out a compatible video card. It's going to be a gaming pc but I don't really care about graphics to much so long as it can handle the games okay.

Cpu- i7700k
Mobo- asus rog strix z270-e
Power supply is 550watt but I can always upgrade if the card needs more juice.

Any recommendations will be welcome.

What monitor resolution?  And what is your budget?  By "don't really care about graphics" I'm guessing you mean you don't mind about high or ultra high detail settings and things like that?

Screen Resolution 1400x1050
Budget 200 to 300
And nope I don't need to be able to count the individual blades of grass while hunting dragons.

TBH a GTX 1050 Ti sounds like it might be a good all rounder, and it would be good at 1080p should you decide to change monitor.  The AMD RX 560 would also be a reasonable choice depending on price. It's a little less powerful than the GTX 1050 Ti (except on DX12 titles where it does relatively better).  Both of these should be well under your budget.  https://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/#c=380,395&sort=price&page=1

 

Note there are two versions of the RX 560 - the best one is the one with 1024 shaders.  

 

I don't really see the point of spending top end of budget on a GTX 1060 6 Gb or similar because at that resolution it's kind of excessive.

Monitor doesn't sound suitable for gaming. I would change it too.

Even RX460 is bit overkill for curent resolution. Unless you have already assembled your PC, I recommend getting something else than 7700K.

Not a fan of AMD so the GTX 1050 sounds good. Thanks.

AMD does make good stuff though, right now is not a good time for them GPU wise though thanks to cryptomining and the lack of availability of Vega cards.

Processor wise AMD is awesome right now, Ryzen is very capable
