Hi, so im currently working on a upgrade on my Pc im moving to a I5 9600KF from the I3 8100. Im also looking at upgrading my 1060 3gb to either a 2060S or a 2070S and wondering which would be a better bang for buck?

Keeping the same motherboard?

What monitor resolution/refresh rate?

The RX 5600 XT/ 5700/XT is the best value for gaming right now in most places, though the prices went up recently.


I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Moderate gaming and general use so games like COD, GTA, Forza 4 at 1080 120hz

If you have no need for RTX, then you might want to check out the cheaper AMD cards @Streetgurumentioned above.
