Should I keep my 2070 Super or go with a 3060 Ti?

So a friend of mine who was stacking up parts for a PC build ended up winning the newegg shuffle and got a 3060 Ti, a few days ago though he had some thing change and he needs to sell off the parts. So he offered the 6030 Ti to me for what he paid for it to get it gone quick. My question is this, should I buy it and sell my 2070 super and get this 3060 Ti or should I just keep my 2070 super. From what I have seen it performs as good as a 2080 super and in some tests beats it out by a few frames. Only worry is if I buy the 3060 Ti and sell my 2070 super that the cards might come down in price again and im left with a 3060 Ti that I have to sell when I really want a 3080 instead.

 

For reference my 2070 super is an MSi Gaming X model and the 3060 Ti is a EVGA FTW3 Ultra

 

Thanks guys

so roughly getting a 3060 ti for msrp and then selling the 2070S for market prices? it's decent

the key is how much you'd get for the 2070S, and the most efficient thing to do is for one of u to just sell the 3060ti off brand new while u keep the 2070S

Negotiate the price from your friend as it's a giveaway card. I would do the switch if your PSU is fine with it. It seems you will not lose any money or lose little to non for extra performance.

If you're not happy with the price you will have to pay after selling your existing GPU then don't.

For MSRP, get it, it's a sidegrade but hey, you got a newer card.

You can sell the 2070 in scalper price, it would be gone in a minute.

I tried to do the rough math, 2070 supers are selling for 650 and the 3060 ti is selling for 850 to 950. SO if I get it for 500 I could just turn around and sell it and make 300 bucks, or I could keep it and sell my old card and only make 150. So I guess what I am looking at is making 300 or so bucks or doing a slight upgrade and making 150 bucks. Of course this depends on how much ebay takes in fees or what not.
