Best GPU (and affordable) for 1440p ?

Hi guys!

 

My build:
Motherboard, Z97-G5.
Processor, i7 4790k.
Cooler, NZXT cracking x61.
RAM, Corsair Venganve 2133mhz.
GPU, Gigabyte G1 1070.

 

My screen setup consists of three screens
2x 1080p 60 / 144hz

1x1440p, 144hz (main screen)

 

Right now im in a sticky situation.

Im thinking about upgrading my gaming computer to a gaming/workstation/streaming.

Now the problem is, im in the 1440p heaven and wants to maintain a steady 144fps in competetive games and lets say 100+ fps in story games (ofc 60+ in the most demanding AAA games).

This is whilst streaming, and i cant maintain that right now with the current setup.

 

Now this is gonna be a more expensive upgrade since i need to upgrade motherboard + RAM.

 

What are you guys recommending? 

Right now im thinking a AMD 2700x for CPU

But what for GPU? 1080ti or a RTX 2070?

 

Also, if i go for this setup. Will my "old build" be a good "streaming" computer?

 

I'm biased in Sweden so prices here are a BIT more expensive then in the US but that doesnt matter. I just want opinions on more affordable/good performance thoughts.

 

Seeya!

This is quite tricky, your system is already very good and balanced and indeed to get more you'd be looking at lots of spending.

 

Given how you want to use your current i7 4790K as a dedicated streaming PC I don't see a point on getting a Ryzen 7 2700X since it's deal is mainly being able to stream. You want refresh rate gaming and for that you'd want the i7 8700K instead, which still is by all means a "workstation capable" CPU.

 

Now for the GPU the RTX 2070 is a GTX 1080, that is just 1 single tier up from your current GTX 1070, if you're going to spend all the money on something new I'd honestly try pushing it to be as meaningful as possible with the GTX 1080 Ti or RTX 2080 coming in mind.

I would suggest get those 1080 ti before they extincted, I mean production for it has been stopped so yeah. And then don't get a 2070 because it didn't even beat the 1080 ti. Unless again the 1080 ti are out of stock

Mention me if you want to summon me sooner or later

Note 10, S10, Samsung becomes Apple, Zen 2, 3700X, Renegade X lol

Yea this is a tricky choice indeed!

I mean, if i could have one streaming computer it would be quite nice. But nobody will buy my other parts since the used market isnt as big here in Sweden. I might tops get a 600Euro for it i think (the whole computer plus a harddrive). 

But then again, who doesnt want two computers?! Kinda always have been a dream, and if I ever go on a LAN i could just use my "old" computer.

Will the 1080ti be that big of a gap for 1440p gaming then? Right now we have a deal on a 1080ti here in Sweden

It's kinda 850 USD (converting it to USD since Linus channel is based in the US).

Is it a good 1080ti?
