I need your help with upgrading.

BANGINGxBT

Specs of of my current Computer

-64gb of ddr4 - ryzen 7 5800x - rtx 2060 - 2tb of m.2 etc..

I want to upgrade my GPU; it's my only remaining component to upgrade. I would like the public's help in deciding what to do.

 

I usually play single-player games at 4K-1440p 60Hz. I'm considering the 4070 at £500 or a used 3080 Ti at £500. Which should I get? I won't be able to purchase a new GPU for a couple of months. Alternatively, should I wait longer for the 50 Series to release and see what happens next? Also, I want it to last me for two generations like my RTX 2060 did. 🙂

Then ask again when you're ready to buy. No sense deciding now if prices end up changing in the future

The used rx 6xxx series looked like the best value. you can probably get a rx 6800 on kijiji for 300-350 CAD if the seller still has them. This bad boy will do 4k120 max settings in most games, has 16GB of vram and the asus version has an overkill cooler.

 otherwise I recommend this as a starting point: https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_value.html

CPU: Ryzen 2600 GPU: RX 6800 RAM: ddr4 3000Mhz 4x8GB  MOBO: MSI B450-A PRO Display: 4k120hz with freesync premium.

3080Ti performs almost identical to the 4070 Super, except it needs much more power to run and runs hotter. I would not be comfortable with a used card unless you get to see it in action yourself.

 

For an additional £70-130 to get leap from 4070 to 4070Ti/Super performance and 16GB of VRAM... you be the judge if its worth the extra money

 

If you want to cut back on spending, you should still be able to attain good 4K60 performance through DLSS with the 4070. Although keep in mind the image quality may not match native 4K and you cannot expect all games to support this feature. It will also leave you wanting if you upgrade to a high refresh rate 4K display.
