Graphics Card Upgrade for i5-11400f

I have a PC right now with an i5-11400f and want to upgrade my GPU from a 1650 SUPER to something higher.

I've heard and seen that I should get a 3060, or a 3070, but I'm just here as a way of verification for what I should actually get.

I don't want too much bottleneck, but also not some obviously crazy expensive GPU.

Thank you, if you respond.

 

I'm adding this in as an edit: my budget is 300-400 dollars

Rather get a 7700XT it's faster and has 12GB VRAM, 8GB is a bit meager if you plan to keep your GPU for some time

Where I am, 7700XT new is >30% more expensive than a store offered used 3070 with warranty. Ebay is cheaper and private sales go even lower.

 

IMO 3070 would still be sufficient for a great experience up to 1440p for foreseeable future. Just don't expect the highest settings in newer more demanding games.

ok, there's 3060 with 8GB (to avoid) and 12GB

But the 7700XT is 60% faster, so sure it's more expensive

You are better off getting a 4060, will be able to use frame generation to get better fps. For 1440p, a 4070 is better. If you do not care about all the new features i.e ray tracing, path tracing etc, go for AMD.
