Hi All ,
So I have desktop computer with Core i7 6700k processor. Recently , my GTX 1070 graphics card failed. Now, I am planning to replace it with something comparable in 2022 [Also need to ensure that it does not bottleneck my old Skylake CPU].I need a video card that can be used with two 1080p displays.
What do you think is a good option in this case ?
Thank you in advance.

Your PSU is rated for anything up to the 3070ti although I would temper that with a consideration for its age. IMO a GPU from the 3060 up would be a considerable upgrade and leave room for a later CPU/mobo/(RAM update.

OK thanks for info ,so what would be the best option from below -->
(My Max Budget is upto RTX 3070Ti)

1. Buy a RTX 3070Ti --> Use it even if it bottlenecks a CPU little bit --> Can be used as it is in case I plan to update entire system build including CPU and MOBO00-->Could be risky as you said Power Supply needs to meet to power demand
2.Buy a RTX 3070 ---> Little more safe in terms of Power consumption may be -->Can be used as it is in case I plan to update entire system build including CPU and MOBO
3.Buy a RTX 2060 ---> My build is old --->It would be stupid to spend money upgrading this build

Note : I am inclined more towards 3070 over 3060 as it is my upper budget spectrum
