New GPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, 

 

So I currently have a i5 6600k and I'm overall happy with my system and don't really want to replace the whole pc.. But I'm still using a gtx 1070 fe. 

I'm wondering what would be the best card I could go for to replace this with without having to replace the cpu.  I will do that at some point.. But probably not for another year or 2.

Im currently using an asus PG279QE, so it's being used for 1440p at 165hz.

 

Would I be able to use the new 3080 or is that too much and if so could I get away with the 3070? 

 

Thanks

i'd go with the 3070 for 1440p. the 3080 is more of an 4k card.

there are differences between 2080ti and 3080 at 1440p, so it's still worth it if OP can afford it

See im thinking a 3070 at my resolution would be better.. Just wanted advice if I'd be foolish pairing it with an i5 6600k.

Right so if I am going to go ahead then 3080 would be fine for now and it'll future proof it for the cpu upgrade later on... Is that a good summary?
