I'm currently on an R9 390 but looking to buy a 1440p 144hz monitor and I think it would struggle (please correct me if i'm wrong!)

My choices are:
GTX 1070 ($318)
Vega 56 ($330)
RTX 2060 ($357)

the next level up 1070ti etc are all $100+ more expensive.

My questions are 1) is it even worth the upgrade? 2) if so which of these cards would you choose?

Thanks a lot in advance!

All three choices are pretty close in performance...
If power consumption is a concern - scratch off the Vega, as it'll draw more than the other 2.
Then between the 2060 and 1070, get the 2060 simply because it's newer.

Thanks I think I'll grab the 2060 and overclock it
