Hello folks.

So I have following current system
CPU: i7 2600k
RAM: 2x2GB + 2x4GB
HDD: 2x 1TB WD
GPU: HD 5870 (planning to change it, recently has coil whine when idle, so scary)
MB: GA-PH67A-UD3-B3
PSU: Gold 500W High-Power(taiwan) (recently upgraded from a 380W(same brand) due to too much coil whine)

I just bought an GB RX 580, but I could not post boot, and finally realized GPU is defective. Seller agreed to give me an 1660 ti instead. GB agreed the card is defective, replaced it.

Now I'm wonder if I go for better option as RTX 2060?

I'm a programmer, but sometimes I like to hit some gaming, why not! Mostly in 1080p, my monitors are 60Hz. I don't want god like FPS, but like smooth play. Maximum 4 hours a day 1-2 days in a week. but surely 1-2 hours a day. No OC at all.

As RTX 2060 comes with new stuffs, maybe it worth the money?! IDK

So I have one option as MSI 1660 ti Gaming model I could afford so soon, or just wait a little more and get an RTX 2060, what's your recommendation?

Much appreciated

For 1080p 60hz you really only need the 1660 ti. The extra features in the RTX are not exactly that useful, as the RTX 2060 doesn't have enough power to run raytracing at decent framerates even on a 1080p monitor.

Thank you so much, Yes I see. So id my PSU enough for 1660ti? My current card drain more power. I used to work with this system with a 380W PSU for around 7 years, so this new 500W will be okay?
HD 5870 also has more TDP over 1660ti.
Correct me, if I'm wrong. Thanks

Yeah in theory it's enough though i'd like to know more info about the PSU.
Just because it says 500W doesn't mean it can deliver that.

Couldn't find any info on it but if the site isn't lying then it looks pretty ok.
Much appreciated! As you stated about new features of RTX, just checked on video, 2080 ti could hit below 50 when RTX stuffs were on! since it's a new tech, so it needs its times to get some place in dev's heart.

Now I think I'm going with 1660ti, thank you.
