Hey,

Here's my current build.

CPU: Intel i5 4690k 3.5 GHz Quad Core
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Motherboard: MSI z97 PC MATE
Memory: 16 gigs ddr3 1600 8x2
Storage: Western Digital 1 TB 7200RPM
GPU: EVGA GTX 960 2GB V-Ram
Case: Corsair Spec-01 ATX Mid Tower
Power Supply: Corsair - CX 500 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi Modular Power supply
Case Fans: 3 case fans

So I need to get a new graphics card. I have only 2 gigs of V-Ram and I want to get a new card that will last me a while. I'm thinking of something between 300-400 dollars so a GTX 1070 or an RTX 2060 but the problem is the RTX 2060 has 6 gigs of V-Ram and someone told me that for future games that won't be enough which kind of surprises me so I'm leaning towards the GTX 1070 with 8 gigs of vram which is about 300 ish dollars on PCPartPicker but I don't know if I should get the RTX 2060. I don't give a shit about ray tracing, I just think that the price on the RTX 2060 is pretty good seeing as a 1080 or 1080 ti is expensive as shit, at least in the US.

Maybe even a 1660 TI
 
The 1660Ti would be a good choice, it matches or beats the 1070 and is usually cheaper, also it would be fine on your current PSU. As for only 6GB of VRAM, this is only a problem if you're playing at high resolution (1440p or 4K) on ultra settings, the 1660Ti isn't really made for that so it will be fine for many years.

Thank you so much! You just put everything into perspective.
