GPUs - Performance v. Open Source


Budget (including currency): <=$1,750.00 (excluding taxes)

Country: United States of America

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming, Virtual CyberSec Labs

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 


Currently trying to sort through how I want to do my build for the new year. The system I currently use is a Ryzen 7 3700x + Nvidia 2070 super, and while it's worked great, I'm hoping to upgrade so I can give my current system to my wife.


My main issue in my build is my GPU. I play a lot of games like Call of Duty & Battlefield that I feel may enjoy the raytracing boost that Nvidia would give me, but I'm also a big open-source fan and trying to justify using a team red GPU since I like to work with Open Source projects, and I feel as though AMD tends to play nicer with that community.


Can anyone maybe shed some light on how their AMD GPU works within games like Call of Duty and Battlefield, and how their Nvidia system works? Currently here is where I am at on my build (building it at the Kansas, USA Microcenter), would love to get some more input!
