I need public opinion on what GPU to buy
Waterblocked Vega 64
GTX 1660 ti
I don't need 144 FPS. I have a 60hz 1080p panel. I also have a 4K TV and 3D TV hooked up to it. I saw the 590 didn't really hit 60FPS on everything on Ultra, so this is where I started looking elsewhere, or I would have already bought a 590. I don't need EVERY FPS per dollar, I NEED 60FPS ON ULTRA ON ANYTHING I PLAY. I don't care if I spend $600 and end up getting 75FPS when I could be getting 120FPS with an i9-9900k. I JUST WANT 60FPS at 1080p ON ULTRA, ON ANY CURRENT AND FUTURE GAME (at least for awhile)
1. 60FPS at 1080p on Ultra
Anything else, 4K, 3D Vision, PhysX, Dropped frames, Bottlenecked CPU, Wasting money, is SECONDARY to my final goal. I am throwing a water block on whatever I end up getting, whether I overclock it or not, so again, I'm NOT trying to penny pinch or get EVERY frame per dollar.
Hopefully that cleared this up.
If I can get 60FPS at 1080p with Ray Tracing on Low with an RTX 2070, I WOULD BE HAPPY WITH THAT. I don't understand how this turned into hostility towards my platform, a misunderstanding of what I wanted, and me necessitating repeating myself and defending my secondary, kitchen/office light gaming PC. This isn't my main gaming rig, and I'm not upgrading it, except for the GPU. NO OTHER MOTHERBOARD OR CPU WILL EVER GO INTO THIS PC. So thanks for pointing out the obvious, that this 6 year old CPU is showing it's age, but that's not what I'm asking.
