Hey all,

So i am currently looking to upgrade my gtx 970 on a budget.

I mainly play csgo on 1080p 144hz. Most of the time I maintain 150+ fps but my gpu fans are making a weird noise and sound like their going to fail soon so want to upgrade. I found a local deal on a gtx 1070 for 250$ (he said that it was purchased january of last year), or i can save up and get a gtx 1660ti for 350+ tax which = 395$. Any advice would be great thanks.

Side question
I have an i5 6600 and a 650w evga gold rated psu, will that be enough power for both of these options?
 
They perform very similarly, but each card will out do the other by a alittle depending on the game. Another option would be a RX 5700 which will outperform both card.

IMO 250 is alittle high for a 1070 since the release of all the recent cards, I would say closer to 220 would be a better price.

They are nearly even.



But what is more important is the fact that you'll get a full warranty with the 1660 TI, and you'll get NO warranty with the 1070, because manufacturers do not extend warranties to third parties 99.99% of the time. There are a few exceptions but if that 1070 is not an EVGA card and if you are not buying from a seller willing to help negotiate the warranty tranfer, then forget that idea. Regardless, the warranty would be half gone anyhow.

You are much better off buying a new card and getting a full warranty. Gaming cards fail far too often to not have the protection that comes with the standard three year warranty for practically all of them these days.
