GTX 1060 upgrade, please advise

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all, 

 

I'm currently on a gtx 1060 6gb (2600k @4.7Ghz, 16Gb 1866Mhz RAM). I blay Battlefield 5 in 4K.

 

My 1060 only manages BFV on low, 4k with 80% resolution scale.. (about 70 fps consistent). I borrowed a 1070 from a friend, I can now get 70 FPS with 100% resolution scale with a mix of medium - low settings. 

 

I can get a 1070 aftermarket card for 230£, a 1070Ti (reference) for 310£.. 

 

May I have any suggestions? Is the 1070Ti worth 80£ more?  I would OC the card... No mater what I get! I try avoid blower coolers... 

Also I'd be happy with an AMD card if it would fit in the price range!

 

Any helpful input/suggestions welcome! 

 

Thanks

RTX2060, Vega 64, 1660Ti ?

 

Pretty sure some of them sell for the same price as you quoted for used cards 

 

 

but, if you really NEED to play 4K then obvious choice is Radeon VII or 2080Ti

Go for a RTX 20xx, it is really worth, after all those months at the end of the day.

1070 is like a vega 56, so quite a good deal

 

my own 1070 ti can outperform a stock 1080, so i think it's worth it if you want the extra power

i Agree with storm, looking at the 1070 ti as instead of it being like a beefed up 1070 its more like a cut down 1080 as the specs are closer to the 1080 than the 1070. personally i would look into either amd cards, 1080's or 2070's especially for 4k gaming as what is the use of playing at 4k if you are only playing on low?, personally i would prefer 1080p ultra over 4k low

IMO, 1060 to 1070 isn't a big enough bump in 2019 to be worth it, especially with 1060 prices where they are. If you're really after 4K at low to medium settings, I'd save up for an RTX 2070 or squeeze together the pennies for a used 1080.

I would go with the 1070ti or a 2060. You can't increase the voltage on the 1070ti's so overclocking it comes down to silicon quality.

I haven’t been able to unlock my voltage in msi afterburner. I remember reading that voltage changes were locked out on the 1070 ti. If this has changed I would love to push my card further since I bought the hybrid style.

Look for AMD VEGA56 Cards that don't blow ;)

Or rather have a custom cooler.

 

They should be around 250-300€. Don't get a Blower.

Yea, the voltage control is grayed out. I've tried unlocking it in MSI afterburner settings, but it doesn't change anything :/
