 Both are about the same price. I always have to monitor so if I see a 1080 for under 400, get that?

4790k OK with either Vega 64 or 1080?

Yep, CPU shouldn't effect the GPU. And if there's a 1080 for under $400 and that's cheaper than the Vega 64 then go for that. But considering your current monitor is FreeSync, I'd get the Vega 64 unless there's a good discount on the 1080. 

Hello,

 

Getting back into PC gaming. I have -

I7 4790k

16gb

Asus mg279q 1440p freesync monitor 

Nitro 390x

 

With the 10 series on sale and there are saphhire vega 64s still in stock what is my best option? Vega, freesync and 3 games I'll never play?

Or 1070ti/1080 and just a nice ISP monitor up to 144hz

 

I plays RPGs and MMO'S. No shooters or competitive gaming. My monitor is still in mint condition. No dead pixels.

Any advice would be appreciated. I have the itch to upgrade. Budget is only for the card the 4790k will still be used for a while

Thanks in advance

Vega 64 performs about the same as a 1080 in games, and should stomp it in any that use Vulkan properly, plus there's Freesync and it's much, much cheaper than G-Sync. I'd only get the 10 series cards if a) your PSU can't handle the Vega 64 or b) your games run better on Nvidia or have stuff like Nvidia hairworks and you think you'll actually use those features. 

 

If none of this matters to you, just get the cheapest one.
