    Cheap non-gaming Graphics Card for x299-e gaming

    Hey,

    I have an ASUS ROG Strix X299-E Gaming, and am currently in transition to a new rig.
    Because 3080 Ti isn't out yet, I will use my 1080 Ti in the new rig.

    Meanwhile, I still need to use the x299 e gaming, for non-gaming things. Nothing graphics intensive. So, I am looking for a recommendation what cheap, non-gaming graphics card can I take for that purpose. To give an idea, under 50 euro would be perfect. I need something to draw GUI of Windows and Ubuntu. If you have recommendations, please feel free to share it.

    Ideally, that graphics card would be reusable with other mobos, if only just to test if the rest of things work fine.

    Thanks! <3

    Thanks, Arne! I wanted to give karma but the site won't let me just yet. I will keep that point stashed for later.

    Just to report back that this card has been working fine wiht x299 e gaming for a few months now. I wish it had a DP output but fine, I already had a HDMI to DP converter (not to be mistaken with a DP to HDMI) if you are lookikng. Those HDMI to DP things need additional power srouce, which happens through an exta USB connection. At least x299 e gaming has plenty of free USB slots to offer.
