Hello, I found a used GTX 980ti for 200$ and was thinking of my whole system. be enough to play all latest games from 2018-2021 at 1080p (144Hz) or 1440p (144Hz) settings?

My computer specs:

i7-980x (12M Cache, 3.33 GHz ) (NO OC)
GIGABYTE X58A-UD7
G.Skill 16GB DDR3-2133 memory
SSD 256 GB WD 1 TB
Corsair RM1000i PSU
Windows 10 Pro Professional

Please don't suggest me a new PC because i dont have alot of money.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!.

A gtx 980 ti in 2020 is still quite powerful. The only drawback of it is that the power consumption of the card is so high which causes the card to generate a lot of heat. It will win a normal gtx 1660 by about 5 to 10% but loses to a gtx 1660 super. A gtx 1660 super is about 250usd and consumes a lot less power than the gtx 980 ti.

A GTX 980 ti is rather old you will get a 1660 ti for 100 $ plus or the same money GTX 1650
No don't buy GTX 1650. Rather buy RX 570 than that card. Better buy GTX 1650 Super that has better technology (GDDR6) which will gives better performance for around 20$ish than the GTX 1650 (GDDR5).
