Hi,


I own a Lenovo Prebuilt PC (T530-28icb) with i5 8400 cpu and upgrades such as 16 gb corsair vengeance ram, seasonic 650W psu, 1 TB SSD and I just upgraded my GTX 1050 TI gpu tu RTX 2060 (bought it with aprox. 330 USD). I am ok with for my casual gaming and video editing with premiere but I am afraid that it wont be future proof for playing 1440P games at high settings the next 3-4 years from now. I can give back the card to the store and get refund or swap it with another one. I am not sure if my pc could run without compatibiity isues (the motherboard seems a cheap one) with a 2070S or maybe 3070. I can buy right now a 2070S with about 550 USD and a 3070 with about 800 USD (that 500 usd for founder edition is just impossible to get) so should I stay with this one, go for the 2070S or 3070 without issues?

Thank you,
andrei

Hi,


I am gaming on an LG OLED (C9) with g-sync and 120HZ at 1440p so that is the sweet spot to get great graphics at that level. With 2060 i tried playing marvel avengers at ultra at 1440p and got judder and lag with an average of 30 fps, so not that future proof imo....i think i will get the card refund and wait for a better version my only concern was that my mobo wont be able to run a 3070 (which is also very hard to get now).
