1080P resolution? And do you care for DDR4 RAM?

These two GPUs should do you well esp. since they are newer but can you give me all your PC specs like Motherboard and such?

Would you recommend anything else from the screenshot I sent you?
Does your motherboard support the RAM you chose? and next upgrade you should go for is definitely the GPU as the GTX 1070 is starting to become the "good enough" GPU on some games so an RTX 2060 or 2070 would do you well in the future that is just my opinion tho!

Yep I know I meant next time you have this kind of money but again does your motherboard support the RAM? and if you dk do you know how to check that? that way you don't waste money
