well, they said ultrawide, but also 1080p, so probably 1440x1080?

Not gonna lie, even for that I wouldn’t consider either of those gpus. I’d go with a 5700/ 2060 Super at least

How do you feel about a used 1070 ti?  That's only about $250.

1660ti and super versions is not very good for 1080p because dont have much future in 1 year games demands will increase since release of new consoles end of this year but I see you got fx 8350 processor who is not very capable present days so 1660 Super is best choice for you, because is cheaper and give performance almost 1:1 with TI in games

I'd imagine the price is comparable in the UK.  Check eBay.
