Changing 1070 for a 2070 Super worth it?

Hi,
I was thinking of exchanging my 1070 for an RTX 2070 Super from EVGA.

In some games my GPU is 99%, I believe it is a bottleneck.

I wonder if the gain is considered to be worth the purchase.

My monitor is 60hz full hd, but I intend to buy a 144hz one in the future. Is it worth swapping or it's better to wait a 3070 price drop?

Thank you!
My PC is:
Ryzen 3600x
asus rog strix
b450f
2 x 8 gb at 3266 MHz
EVGA GTX 1070
Masterwatt PSU 750w CM

a 2070 super is like 70% stronger than your 1070. if you get a used 2070 super for less than 350 USD id say thats worth it

Get a 3070 if you can - it will be a massive difference from a 1070 and will future proof your setup for a good few years.

Sounds like the right thing to do.
