hi all,

i think this is my first post on this forum. so i apologise for any inconvenience.

here is my current system

i mainly do gaming with this. last day my graphics card died. Thats the current diagnosis but i still look for the cause. i never do overclocking. :(

of course now i an looking for a replacement card.

which way should i go? a 1080ti, 1080 or a 1070 will do? i am a bit confused on this.

thanks inn advance for the answers

regards

Kerem

Well, depends on how much money you wan't to spend. GPU prices are still very high. If money is no problem, why not going with a 1080(ti)?

Also depends on what you are doing with your PC and what monitor(s) you have.

If you are just playing at 1080P 60/75Hz a 1070 should be enough, a 1070TI would also be an option.
 
Wow! a dead GPU in a very bad time to get a decent new one. You have quite a very bad luck my friend.

Your I7 4770k PC is still very powerful and can take any GPU you can afford.
What kind of monitor you are playing on? The decision for the GPU depends on the monitor.
1440p 144/165hz? GTX1080Ti
1440p 60hz? GTX1070Ti or 1080
1080p 144/165hz? GTX1070
1080p 60hz? GTX1060 6GB

Demanding games at 1080p/60-144hz or 1440p/60hz 1070 is good most of the time. 1440p/144hz or 4k the 70ti/80/80ti start to make sense. Examples of demanding games would be bf1 for cpu and wildlands for gpu.
 
The only problem now is, that I paid €480 for my 1080 about 2 years ago but you have to pay perhaps €800 for a 1080.
Now, with €400 you get only 1060 6gb.
Either you have to dig deeper into your pocket or lower down the gpu.
e.g. For 1440p 60hz, 1070 will do also just fine...even it is also ok with GTX1060 6gb. YOu just have to reduce more settings.

thanks for the comments,

seems that 1080TI is not that good to justify the price difference with 1080 (3600TRY- 5100TRY)

my current monitor is an old one but that OK, because i will change it in 4-8 months time to a 1440p one.

the games that i play for exemple, BF1, SW Battlefront2, Space Engineers, World Of Tanks/Warships, Total War2 etc....

i normally use one card for around 4 yrs.

if i buy a 1060 or 1070 i fear that after 2-3 yrs they will become useless...

on the other hand, even today i can not find a new LGA 1150 CPU for my mainboard to update it... so i start to think that buying high end hardware and using it for a long time like 4 years (to justify its price tag) is something that is not advisable...

decisions decisions.

Its better to pay less and upgrade more often, then when you can sell the old card for good market value. The top end cards are always very bad value for money.

I would grab a 1060 6gb or 1070 depending on the prices. Either will be a good upgrade over the 780.

Yeah, thats tending to be what most people are doing.

Im sure it will sort it self out in time, eventually ASICs come out that can mine the different currency much more efficiently, or it just becomes too slow and non profitable.
