Thanks to r0xz for the Original PROGRAM20 20% off Selected Sellers on eBay Deal Post
damn, that's a good price
Is 2080 worth the 300-400 dollars extra?
depends how ?
What is 300-400 dollars to you.. for some people it is a months groceries for some others it is a seasons worth of groceries.
If you are behind on bills 300-400 dollars is the difference between lights on and lights off.
@AlienC: das deep
@AlienC: So true !!
Depends on if you want to game at 1440p and when you are going to upgrade again.
It is if you don't know the value of money :)
Basically if you have to ask it is worth it :)
1060's are going for sub $300 now just keep that in mind and the jump from 2070 to 2080 and 2080 to 2080 Ti is 30-40% max some titles obviously more but that is the average bump up.
Depends really what you are after I would say yes if you have the money just because you will have less headaches.
1660's make the decision a bit harder. On lower settings, they're as good as a 2060 (minus the ray-tracing/DLSS), and a good bit cheaper - it's a tough call.
Very true. The new 1660 / 1660 Ti add a whole new dimension to the gpu mid tier range.
But still fresh at this stage so they are pricey but will drop surely after a few months after a year should be very good value.
Right now I would honestly go for second hand 1070 / 1070 ti instead.
@AlienC: I've got an ageing 960 that I desperately want to upgrade but can't decide between them the good options!
@gone anon: You aiming for 1080p still I presume or you got other resolutions and frame rates in mind.
@AlienC: 1440p. I play a fair bit of fortnite with most options turned down and the 960 get about 80-90FPS. Have been considering a gaming monitor 144hz+
@gone anon: Honestly if you are budget restricted can't go wrong with a 1060 6gb nowadays.
Though probably want a 1070 to reach 144hz 1080p in most modern games.
@AlienC: Not really budget restricted - more mid-range. Want good bang for buck and the 1660 / 1070 / 2060 all seem pretty much the same. Leaning towards the 2060 as it has the edge over the other 2.
@gone anon: If you are not budget restricted why not go for the king of the crop? RTX 2080 Ti
@AlienC: Yep I did. $350 for a 1070. 2 years warranty.
@Hogey 74: Awesome deal.
Once found a used (maybe mining card but could have just been heavy gaming) titan xp for fame price 350 on eBay was either titan x or xp I can't remember in too old for this shit
So few reviews of the cheaper models, making it hard to get a clear answer on issues like noise. Just some Geeks3D review which says it's "easily heard" but "more than acceptable" under load, a Reddit comment describing it as "loud as shit under load", and Newegg reviews giving a mixed picture. One thing confirmed at least is it doesn't feature fan stop at idle.
have you tried searching videos on youtube for the reviews.
I have this card, the fan noise is annoying even idle, I have a nc headphone so can live with it, but if you mind fan noise, avoid it.
Anyone replace the fans? I replaced the two crappy ones on my 1070 for one large one off a CPU and it works great.
Yes this is a good mod to do which gives better performance with less noise than stock cooler.
I suggest buying two or three Noctua 92mm PWM fans for best noise vs. performance and a PWM splitter cable if necessary.
Remove the shroud and fans and attach the fans directly to heatsink using zip ties or wire.
May as well replace the thermal paste with something high end while you're at it.
Yeah that's what I did with my 1070, id pretty much do it again with any card I got, love the sound difference it makes.
I wish this was the ASUS card for this price. man i want that card….
Might be worth paying an extra $40 and getting the Gigabyte Windforce version, faster clock speeds and a lot quieter + fan stop at idle.
I agree. From my experience over the years, Gigabyte is better quality. I had an MSI card die after only a year. My current Gigabyte GTX 970 has been going strong for years under heavy load, and is quiet. I'm looking to upgrade to 2060 or 2070.
Umart have the Galax GeForce RTX 2070 EX 8G Graphics Card for $699.00 if that's of use to anyone…
"Galax" is the sort of brand name you arrive at when nobody has anything better after 10 minutes of brainstorming.
