GPU for Intel i7 9700k

What's a good GPU to pair with a i7 9700k if I run 1440p 144hz at high/ultra? 

AMD or Nvidia idc

Feel free to recommend other upgrades but I plan on getting another ssd and probably a better psu depending on my gpu

If you need more information just ask. Anything helps. Thanks.

Just a tip, if you haven't bought the PC yet don't go for a 9700K. 3 year old CPU with no HT, and a bit overpriced. The 10700F - 11600 are much better options. The ryzen 5 5600x and 5800x are also much better than the 9700K.

Now if you already have it, in this current market i'd say anything from a 3060ti - 3080 would be good, but you can't really buy them. What is your budget?

You can reasonably pair it with pretty much any powerful GPU you like, but the budget is a factor. An RTX 3070 would be fine overall if it's something you could afford.

 

Also you can edit a pcpartpicker list to show that a part is already purchased.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

$1,000 I guess.  I don't really have budget because I can get help to pay

Okay. at MSRP the 3080 is what you should get, but in this current market you will get lucky if you find a 3070 or 3070ti for around $1000.

I agree, with that budget and that resolution, for the best experience a 3080 is what you want. Things are (slowly) improving so if you can wait it out, jump on one for under $1000. Or just get lucky with Best Buy drops @ $699.
