[SOLVED] How much more will I get out of a 1080p 144hz 1ms monitor going from a GTX 780 to a GTX 1660 Ti?

Specifically, it's an Asus VG248QE.

My CPU is an i7-4771, and I've got two 8GB sticks of Cas 9 DDR3-1866 for RAM.

Thanks for any feedback!
 
A graphics upgrade is always good.
But how much better will be determined by your processor and the types of games you play.
Sims, mmo and strategy games may be limited by the processor.

For fast action games, the graphics card is all important.

Try this test:
Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu is strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you are likely more cpu limited.

I'm pretty confident that the CPU can handle quite a bit more. Lowering resolution / settings certainly does always improve performance. Anyways, sounds like the 1660 Ti is a good upgrade path, overall.


Thanks guys!
