Thanks for clicking in, I needed a title to grab you guys!

 

Currently have an R9 270 relic, willing to spend up to 400$, going red or green, I want a substancial increase, like a gtx 1070 or rx 590

 

What card should I upgrade to? Almost got a 1070 but noticed 590 has similar FPS and cheaper. 

 

Also have a monitor with FreeSync not being used currently

 

Just have to run Fallout 76 (Max settings), PUBG (max), games like those

 

Thank you for your input!

 

Happy Holidays Everyone!

1070ti will be fine.  I hope you aren't getting fallout 76 yet because it was a huge flop and doesn't run amazingly on even really good systems.

I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

 

Try using the PSU Tier List!

1070 off used market will be cheap and good.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Refund it man it's not worth it imo.  Also you can find a good 1070 ti under $400 if you find sales

Ultra runs like butter on my rig, and the patch last night helped with a lot of things.  Haven't had an issue logging in or changing worlds to join friends.  Lots of things I would tweak tho, but Bethesda always thinks they know better than others doing things before them.  Plus waiting on UW resolution support.

 

I'd get the 1070Ti as said above for $359...

it depends on your resolution, the 1070ti is the best you can buy under 400usd, but in terms of value, the rx 580 for 200usd with 2 games free is the best bang for buck atm (or the rx 570 for 140), you can sell the games for 80usd (division2+RE2) and end up with a rx570 for 70usd or rx 580 for 130usd.

Okay, so the Gtx 1070/1070ti sounds like the best choice, but what about my monitor? I run 144hz at 1080 and it has a FreeSync capability, does that by itself make AMD the better choice or does team green still have the lead?

Game dependent.  PUBG is showing 1070Ti is faster, for example.

 

Either way, can't really go wrong with the 1070Ti for $359 or the Vega 64 for $399.

If power draw is expensive for him the Vega is a worse choice.

You need to get ATI imo, because of your monitors ability to freesync.  If you had a G sync monitor I would say go green.  If your monitor had no sync then go with 1070, but since it does have freesync go with a RX580.  It will play nice with your monitor and best bang for the buck.  Just remember to run DU in safe mode uninstall drivers.  Put the ATI card in and boot up and install latest drivers and you should be set.
