upgrade path towards 3070 grade of performance

i seldom do gpu upgrades, like once every 6 yrs.

now i have rx570 for 1080p 75hz gaming

 

$500 just for a gpu looks to be too expensive even perf is amazing, although it is overkill for this monitor and i might not get a new one soon..

 

so how about if i get a $200-300ish gpu like 5600xt as place holder and also buy $300 ish next gen gpu (hoping to match 3070 in 3 yrs time)

this way total $ spent will be roughly the same, but i get a extra mid end gpu

 

anything i missed from my assumption?

Wait for RDNA 2/Big Navi. For your setup that would be the best idea.

Radeon 6000 series drops later today. Wait to see what they have to put on the table before making any decisions.

The big question you have to answer is, are you able to wait a month? Two months?

 

The next few months will be transformative for the GPU market. Maybe in January you can buy a card with 2080 super performance for ~ half the cost. That means we're in "buyer's regret" territory and you have a lot to gain from waiting.

 

If not, then I would recommend getting the 5700 XT if you can since it is the performance-per-dollar king.
