EVGA 2060s or MSI 2070

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

should I buy an EVGA 2060 Super for $530 CDN, or an MSI 2070 Ventus for $560 CDN?  Don’t want AMD drivers, so these are my options.  I know that the 2070 is more powerful, but is it worth the extra $30, or should I go with the 2060 super from a great brand like EVGA?

$30 is a tiny jump. In terms of a full PC build, assuming somewhere in the ballpark of $1000, that's a 3% price increase, so you should get the 2070.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

yes, i would say its worth it to pay an extra 5% and get around 13% more performance

Personally, I would choose EVGA every single time because imo it's always been an amazing brand. I bought an MSI one this time around (since I could not afford an EVGA one) and part of it broke. Usable, but you know. Realistically, the only question you need to answer for yourself is: do you really need the extra power? 

As for AMD, I bought everything team red this time around, and I have no issues with the drivers. You might wanna consider that. Don't forget, Nvidia drivers are a pain to deal with at times, and you have to use a third party software to uninstall them, it never fails XD

Definitely 2070. Why leave performance on the table if you pay a few bucks more for more?

 

I am a die hard EVGA fan due to the customer support I have previously received, but in your case I would get that 2070 for sure.

I love EVGA due to the quality of their items. But if you really don't need 150%, 200%. 250% power, no point paying for an inferior brand (despite that specific card being more powerful). Then again, only the OP knows what he needs it for.

I do video editing/photo, as well as gaming, and my AMD RX 580 Armor OC is more than enough for all that. Since the cards he's looking for are technically higher tiered (I would assume) he'd  be fine.

It's more like a 4% jump in 1440p performance.
