Hi I am still a noob in the PC gaming but I was just wondering whether I should buy a 2060 or a used MSI 1070 ti Titanium for $440 CAD so roughly 330 USD.

*Card is not overclocked or used to mine.

Good post naitsyrk….. Yes that is what I thought for 1440p gaming the 1070 or 2070 are not enough uh ?  Im talking everything maxed out in nvpanel all settings on and set to max plus game settings set to ultra I get avg 110fps in Quake Champions.  So if I get a 2070 it wont sustain 144hz right ?  So I need a 2080 or a 1080Ti ?  Also would I lose out if I dont get a 2080 or 2080Ti.  I mean 1400 bucks for a video card is something I will not do ya know, even if I was rich and what not.  I just want 144fps sustained @ 1440p.  I do not want to game @ 4k.  You would suggest a 1080Ti or a 2080 naked non Ti as I wanna keep the money under 1k and what not.

I’d get the 2060fe based off looks alone. 

Performance being somewhat marginal between the two mentioned.  

That being said nothing wrong with a 1070ti as it performs well. Not my go to for 1440 but thats entirely on you and your gameplay. As that’s for both cards, but I’m a 1080p person.
