GPU Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

First i'm a beginner trying to learn about computer parts and i was going to up grade my gpu on my premade system i bought in 2017 heres the specs.

 

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 - 69%

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 - 73%

SSD: Spcc Solid State Disk 512GB - 51.8%

SSD: WDC WDS100T2B0B-00YS70 1TB - 85.9%

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2TB - 82%

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 4TB (2016) - 90.5%

USB: WD My Book 25EE 10TB - 58.6%

RAM: Micron 16ATF2G64AZ-2G1B1 1x16GB - 34.8%

MBD: Dell XPS 8910

 

i was thinking maybe a nvidia gtx 1660 super but not sure if this will be better than what i got by looking at benchmark scores, can you guys help out a layman?

 

thanks

Nvidia 3000 series GPUs are releasing in about a month and a half. I would wait to upgrade until then.

Wow, I thought it was a good like 3-4 months away. Is that for all cards or just like 3080. I think 3080tis come out later, correct me if I'm wrong.

Barely an upgrade.

In fact your kind of downgrading with getting a card that has a smaller frame buffer 

Wait for ampere and big Navi which is expected to come out in Q3/Q4 of this year 


My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying 

 

@TofuHaroto so I can see your post

Technically yes but wait for ampere.

I think thats the release date for most models. But some like 3080ti or 3090 (if they change the naming) could be releasing a bit later.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Yes, ampere is the code name for 3000 series graphics cards. You’re current cpu might be a tiny bottle neck but it’s still a pretty ok cpu. I would upgrade that and motherboard next though.
