I have a 2060 + i5 9600k. I want to use 4K DSR a lot because a lot of games have poor AA implementation. 
 

I play PS4 also and I want to get a PS5 for the exclusives. I can’t decide.

Can you play anything you want to play on the PS5? Then that is probably the better purchase for you. Get the GPU if you play games only available on PC and/or you have other uses for it that require a powerful GPU.

Is 3070 going to destroy the PS5 graphics?

No one knows, but judging based on previous gen consoles

For the same games, yea, PC graphics are higher

 

But PC also costs more too, so...

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I'd just wait before making a decision beforehand.

As @Moonzy said, we don't really know yet. It's very likely that games will look better on PC. But you're also paying a lot more for a PC than you pay for a console. So it really depends on whether the better visuals is worth the (much) higher price to you.

I'd wait until both are out for a few months and well-reviewed before making a purchase.

 

It'd come down to what you want to play and how you want to play it.  Platform exclusives might also sway your decision.

It's worth noting that, once you've bought your 3070, you can sell your 2060 for $250-$300 or so, recuperating about half of the price of your 3070. You can then use that money to save for a PS5.

 

If you saving more money is not an option, then I suppose a point to consider that may speed up your decision is: Do you want better visuals or more games? Buying an RTX 3070 isn't going to increase the number of games you can play unlike what buying a PS5 will do. Is 4K DSR worth it that much to you?

I don't know about "destroy" as these consoles will PROBABLY perform well enough that anything you'd be missing on the PS5 wouldn't really detract from the overall experience.

 

We REALLY need to see independent reviewers when they do release. Speculation can result in disappointment.

Since you already have a PC I would say get the 3070, it sould be really close performance wise

Main PC [The Rig of Theseus]:

CPU: i5-8600k@5.0GHz | GPU 1: GTX 1660@2070MHz | GPU 2: GT 710 | RAM: 16 GB DDR4 3000MHz | Case: Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic | PSU: Corsair RM 650i | SSD: Corsair MP510 480GB |  HDD: 2x 2TB WD Black | Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro | OS: Windows 10 Pro, Manjaro

 

Secondary PC [Why did I bother]:

CPU: AMD Athlon 3000G | GPU: Vega 3 iGPU | RAM: 8 GB DDR4 3000MHz | Case: Corsair 88R | PSU: Corsair VS650 | SSD: WD Green M.2 SATA 120 GB | Motherboard: MSI A320M-A PRO MAX | OS: Windows 10 Pro

 

Server [Solution in search of a problem]:

Model: HP DL360e Gen8 | CPU: 1x Xeon E5-2430L v1 | RAM: 12 GB DDR3 1066MHz | SSD: Kingston A400 120GB | OS: Debian Buster

 

Server 2 electric boogaloo [A waste of electricity]

Model: intel NUC NUC5CPYH | CPU: Celeron N3050 | RAM: 2GB DDR3L 1600MHz | SSD: Kingston UV400 120GB | OS: Debian Buster

 

Laptop [A hunk of shit]:

Model: MacBook Air Late 2010 | CPU: Core 2 Duo L9600 | RAM: 4 GB DDR3 1066MHz | OS: MacOS Catalina 

 

PSA: No, I didn't waste all that money on computers, (except the main one) my server cost $40, the intel NUC was my old PC (although then it had 8GB of ram, I gave the bigger stick of ram to a person who really needed it), my laptop is used and the second PC is really cheap.

I like tinkering with computers and have a personal hatred towards phones and everything they represent (I daily drive an iPhone 7, or a 6, depends on which one works that day)

Console games are too expensive, PC all day for me.

 

I looked into getting a switch and it was about £700 just to get my family up and running... 

 

A gaming PC is a higher initial cost but I have a whole back catalogue of games I can play, no need to buy everything again!

Meh, big difference between game prices on Switch vs Playstation. Playstation games drop in price fast, faster than Steam. Switch games stay high forever, at least the Nintendo first party stuff.

Yeah, sometimes in cases with EPIC exclusives they are even more expensive like tony hawks pro skater 1&2 remaster. I was shocked to see a new release that's more expensive than console.

Look at games like Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Part II, they look incredible on the base PS4 so i think they're going to be able to do amazing things with the Sony exclusives in the coming years.
