Okay so here is currently my entire PC : https://pcpartpicker.com/list/MmvyD8

I could return my current gpu and receive the full refund and purchase a 1070ti for $464

What are yall opinions on this ? Is it worth getting the 1070ti?

Also, this is the 1070 ti im trying to purchase. Opinions please.

Would it give me a good amount of increase in performance?


EDIT : ALSO WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 1070TI AND THE 1070SC?

I reckon go for a 1080 Ti tongue.gif
1070 Ti and 1070 SC are different cards ( GTX 1070 Ti and GTX 1070). The SC stands for superclocked i think, a gigabyte card?
The 1070Ti is a better card, more cuda cores and shaders i think.

What resolution are you playing at? At 1060 might be enough if you are on 1080p

If I were you I would buy at least 1080, why you need this "almost" card as 1070ti or 1070 if you already bought 8700K ?! biggrin.gif

Aren't 1080ti like $1000 lmaoo way too expensive

Also this is the 1070ti I have picked out https://m.newegg.com/products/N82E16814932013?ignorebbr=1

Opinions on this card? Is it good?

That's what I was thinking. lol I can't have a 1060 with a 8700k. But 1080s are expensive. Any advice or suggestions on good 1070ti or 1080 around $500??

Yea, don't pair up that bad boy 8700K with a GTX 1060... Get at least a GTX 1070 Ti to make use of intels superior IPC/Frequency.

Otherwise, a Ryzen 1700 + GTX 1080 would be a better build for you with a similar price range.

Haha yea I know, I originally had a I5-8600k and returned it and laid $100 more for a i7-8700k and now I'm left with the 1060 which I can return and exchange also which is what I'm trying to do. I can't have a 8700k with a 1060 haha. Any suggestions on gpus 1070ti or 1080 that's around $500?

Op your monitor is 1080p no need to upgrade. The 1060 is plenty for 1080p anything more would be a waste of money. Unless you upgrade your monitor as well.

 

And NO your 8700k has nothing to do with the GPU. Most games are CPU bound anyways.
