I need help replacing my MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card. I would like to update my 2014 computer build to extend its use and continue to game for a bit longer, but without exceeding the cost of a brand new build . (My wife and I currently saving for a beastly build for her, but my old build is getting a bit creaky.) I realize I can only update my old rig so much , so I am looking the most bang for my buck while we save for bigger builds.

Specs.

Motherboard: MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Extreme OC High Performance Triple CFX/ SLI Intel Motherboard

Tower: Corsair, Graphite Series 230T Windowed Compact Mid-Tower Case, CC-9011042-WW

Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper T4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Processor: Intel Core i5-4670K - Core i5 4th Gen Haswell Quad-Core 3.4 GHz LGA 1150 84W Intel HD Graphics Desktop Processor - BX80646I54670K

Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9

Anything you want. With that psu there's no restrictions at all on size of the gpu. The only 2 restrictions are budget and monitor.

Budget: well that's kinda obvious. But plan on $700 or higher, even for a used gpu.

Monitor: if all you have or plan to have is a 1080p 60Hz, you won't need anything more than a 2070Super/3060/5600xt/5700 to get the most out of almost every game. Even works well if using a 144Hz monitor since the cpu will be the limiting factor there.

If 1440p same if 60Hz, but start looking towards 2080Super or 3060ti/3070/5700xt class cards if 144Hz.

For 1440p 144hz or 4k, 3080/6800xt or better.
