Hi There,

I have the ABS Stalker X ALI012 with the following specs:
- Chipset Intel Z97
- Intel Core-i7-4790K (4.0 GHz)
- 16 GB DDR3 2 TB HDD
- Nvidia GTX 960 2 GB (Not the 4GB)

The CPU is overclocked and I've never ran into any overheat problem. I do have some budget ~350$ so can you please suggest which graphic card should I upgrade?

I play games, but never at max/high for GTA V or Hunter Monster World. I have to set everything to Low, otherwise the FPS drops significantly and unplayable at med/high.

Thank you.

I have a 3770k and went from a GTX 960 to a 1070 Ti (MSI Twin Frozr). I OCed it slightly (+500 on memory & +150 on the core) and it now performs like a 1080 while temps never exceeding 70C. Great improvement in PUBG (1440p ultra), GTA V (1440p ultra), Rocket League (4k ultra), CSGO (4k ultra), and other titles.

Thanks, so out of those 3, what is your top pick? i could spend a little more just to get the new 1080 or 1070ti if it's recommended (up to 400$).

I would only get a 1080 or 1070 Ti if I could buy them cheaper than a RTX2060. If more expensive, go with a RTX 2060. I got my 1070 Ti for $280 used.

Thank you, your solution is what im looking for. Since i'm not really familiar with picking any 2060 out there, can you please let me know which one of these are better: (or any other link to the product should help as well), really appreciate it

Performance is going to be the same and they both offer 3 year warranty. This comes down to personal preference. I prefer double fans over one and I like having more display ports over DVI. MSI has 1 hdmi, 3 dp while EVGA has 1 hdmi, 1 dp, and 1 DVI.
