Hello everybody, im thinking to upgrade my GPU, I Have a Ryzen 5 2600, 16GB of RAM running at 3000mhz, M.2 SSD as boot, and remaining storage SSD as well, would a Gigabyte RTX 3070 bottleneck? Or a ASUS RTX 2060 Dual Evo 6Gb?
 
For 1080p 75Hz I’d feel a 3070 is a little over the top. With 75Hz there is no point getting more than 75 FPS and a 3070 can generally do more at 1080p. A 3060 is probably as high as I would go. An R5 2600 should be able to go 75 FPS in most games, yes a faster cpu would likely give higher FPS it is not worth worrying about when limited to 75Hz.

For which gpu you want, a 3060 or something below that depends on budget and how important it is to run maximum settings. For example a 2060 is still a decent card for 1080p 75Hz but may require compromises on game settings in certain games to average 75fps. The 2060 is also a bit too weak to really run ray tracing but personally I feel ray tracing is a bit pointless and adds nearly nothing.

Not planning to use RayTracing to be honest.
So in your opinion, in my specific case
I have to choose between RX 5500XT, RTX 2060, RTX 2070 Super, and a RTX 3060
What is your advice in my circumstances?

There are benchmarks, take a look at reviews. There isn’t a right/wrong choice, just which suits your budget and how much you care about running max settings. Any of those could be a good choice although in the current market the price of each option is a factor, can you get any of these at a reasonable price.

Ok, i feel you
I was just asking like
If it was you in my situation
Which of them would you go for, you know?

I like running highest settings and budget is not a problem so for me I’d get the 3060 assuming a reasonable price close to MSRP, I don’t like paying ridiculous prices even if budget isn’t a problem. However someone else could get equal enjoyment out of the other options if it fits their needs.
