RX 590 / GTX 1060/1070ti for long term usage

Hey guys,

 

So I'm currently running a Ryzen  5 2600X with an AMD R9 285 2GB that definitely need to get replaced. The GPU served me well since I'm not really the guy who need to play at max settings, so I lowered them over time in newer games.

My current options are:

  • RX 580 8GB ~250€
  • RX 590 8GB ~300€
  • GTX 1060 6GB ~260€
  • GTX 1070 8GB ~320€
  • GTX 1070Ti 8GB ~400€

I know they all run pretty good with high/ultra settings at 1080p but how about in a few years? Which one would be the best price/longevity ratio? I don't mind playing at low settings in ~3-5 years.

1070ti in terms of performance is the best card you have listed. This will give you the best experience short and long term. You should check out the prices on Vega 56s and 64s as well.

Yeah thats what I thought, but the performance gain of adding 80€ from the 1070 to the Ti is smaller than lets say from the 1060 to 1070 right? (Only seen a few benchmarks so I am not sure). Which makes me think the 1070 might be the sweet spot?

no, you can overclock a 1070ti to match the stock performance of a 1080.

Just wanted to thank you again. Got a PNY 1070Ti Blower now. I have a cheap & toasty case so I thought blower style cooler would be better for now.

Reached 21508 in default Firestrike 1.1 with max temps of 75°C, that should be in 1080 range right?
