Conflict of upgrading and not upgrading to GTX1660

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I can afford to upgrade the gpu now. I had the 1050ti since before the RAM price increase.  When I got excited to have the extra funding, there are other passions this can go to,  I reevaluated my pc usage and experience. I do mild digital art, photoshop when needed, play games at 1080 but not all are max settings, enough to stay above 30-40fps. I am a mild gamer who has a small library and will play games that I know will enjoy and get what i pay for.  Empyrion and Arma 3 are examples. Cyberpunk is a game I want to play depending on review. The potential Elder Scroll release and graphics, I do want to have it at high setting at least.        The over all question is, " Will I not regret upgrading?"  " Nvidia  has been a good experience for me and comfortable with the green team for now."
