Within this month, probably towards the end i'm looking to upgrade my GPU and subsequently my monitor.

I would like to get a 1440p/144hz monitor. Just wondering what kind of GPU would have enough power to justify buying it?

Current specs:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600x
MOBO: ASUS Strix B450-F GAming
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 2133MHz
PSU: 700WATT Bronze EVGA
GPU: XFX RX-470 4gig


I was thinking along the lines of maybe a 1660ti? Don't know if it'll be powerful enough to handle it?

The game I spend most of my time on is FF14, a little Black Ops 4 here and there. Pretty much nothing else.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Edit: Budget would probably be around 600$.

google fps benchmarks for those games at 1440p.

Eyy,

I too have a 1440/144HZ monitor.

I've owned both the 1080 and 1080 ti. (2070 and 2080ish equivalent)

The 1080 Was "Good enough" and ran most games between 75-120 FPS like PuBG, AAA titles like tomb raider, High settings.


I could squeeze the 144 in games like overwatch and Rainbow 6 Med settings.

The 1080 Ti was more like 90-160 and felt like I was getting way more out of my monitor,

1080s are still insanely expensive.
What about a 2060SUPER? Was looking at the 1070ti but for maybe 30-40$ more the Super seems to outperform.

Or maybe the 5700? Which isn't quite as good as the 2060S but falls back 30-40$

So many options..

I bought my 1080 Ti used from a Crypto miner for $500 USD. It had an unregistered warranty that was still good for another 20 months.

The used market will always get you more bang for the $. Just test the hardware before you buy and ask for their proof of purchase so you can warranty it too. (EVGA is a brand that you can second hand warranty on all cards bought before May 25th 2018 (So 1080 and 1080 ti's)) Even if they already registered it the first time.

It depends what games you expect to play and what kind of frame rate you find acceptable. The best thing you can do is search for gaming benchmarks using various GPUs and CPUs

Example: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=2600x+1660ti+1440p+gaming+benchmarks

I'd say pay particular attention to performance in titles like:
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Metro Exodus
Far Cry 5
Assassin's Creed Odyssey
Battlefield 5
Witcher 3

Because these games are graphic intensive and will actually push the GPU and CPU.

did you read post 2?
I guess not cause I mean your nothing more then a bloated echo at this point.
User should search the games he playing not what he may never use.

I was being helpful by making sure they get a fuller perspective on how they can expect that hardware to perform. Searching games he plays is a good idea, but that shouldn't be the only thing they look at. You can't seriously expect somebody will never play a different game ever. Looking only at benchmarks of super light games is a disservice to knowledge and making an informed purchase. Because a potato can run those light games. No harm in having a full perspective. Sounds like you just want to argue.
