Was not on here for like a long time.. So hey,

I probably want to buy a new GPU, but I'm not yet sure if it's worth it (I have good knowledge about PC's and everything, just want second oppinions).

My current PC:
  • i7 8700k @ 4,7GHZ on all cores
  • GTX 1060 zotac AMP
  • 16GB corsair vengance @3000mhz
  • gigabyte aorus gaming 3 (z370)
  • PSU: 600W be quiet! Pure Power 10 (yes for my system maybe bit too much)
So.. I currently do only play at 1080p but will probably get a 1440p display soon.
Even tough I really think that the 1060 is such a good card, I do see it's aging.

Just bought Borderlands 3 a day ago, and it's actually really demanding and I have to set details to either medium to get over good fps, or at highest a medium/high mix. I also record or stream it sometimes, and if my GPU is at 100%, my Stream will just lag.

So.. I thought about the RTX 2060 Super, cause it has 8GB of VRAM and many newer games will probably appreciate it.

Thanks.
 
for 1440p, 1060 is not really good. This is for sure, especially for those 1440p 144/165hz monitors. 1060 is only at 970 -980 level.
I would grab anything at least 1070 or better. 2060 is about similar to 1070..the rest, you do the math.

If you aim for really high FPS and if you want to keep the GPU for a while, 1080ti (2080) or better would be nice.

Do not focus on VRAM, if the GPU chip is already at it's limit, having more VRAM will not help much.

Thanks for your answere!

Yes, 1080TI would of course be nice, but finding one is the other thing.
I will not focus on VRAM.

In all your answere was pretty good and helped. I will still see if others have tips.
