Given that you are okay with tuning some settings to get 60fps @ 1440p, I'd still recommend the 1660ti, should be fine for 4-6 yrs.(with RTX off )

Maybe you should wait for Navi. 3 months more I guess.

I can't see myself buying into the ray trace stuff for a while so perhaps the 1660Ti is the target for now?
Here's a LTT on the 1660ti. I set the time for when the benchmarks start. Seems like the 2060 has a 10 fps advantage at both 1080p and 1440p.

I'd say from a price/performance then the 1660ti makes more sense though you do seem to keep your gpu's for awhile so that extra performance of the 2060 might come in hand later on.

I've had good luck buying used cards here on the marketplace. As a fellow original Skyrim player, I agree that VRAM is helpful if you are modding. Some of the best mods are still only available on the original and eat lots of VRAM.

I tend to steer clear of the churlish crap on Youtube.

This is a good view of the 1660 performance. https://www.techspot.com/review/1799...ega-benchmark/

Good luck.

Depending on budget I would look at one of the following. GTX980ti, GTX 1070, GTX 1070ti, GTX 1660ti. I own a pair of 780ti and a pair of 980ti cards and have been comparing. I also stuck in a 1070ti and the 980ti and 1070ti are massive upgrades over the 780ti. But again budget is going to play a big part in what you get. With the 1660ti being at the price it is I would lean strongly towards it if you have no plans of SLI in the future.

Good luck.

That exact review is what started my thinking of the 1660Ti or the 2060. I can't easily compare the 780Ti to any current card/game title. The closest I can get is an old 780Ti bench in Witcher 3 and work my way up because this title is included in the current gen cards. The only 'current' title I play is Kingdom Come and there certainly arent any 780Ti benches for that and Skyrim (even SE) is too old to have 1660 or 2060 benches so I can only extrapolate from the Witcher 3 benchmarks. From this I get that the 1660Ti scores about 15% less than the 2060 on Kingdom Come and Witcher 3 but is about 60% more than the 780Ti for Witcher in average FPS and a 300% increase in min FPS.

I'm honestly swaying toward the 1660Ti at this point. The price is more affordable than the 2060. It appears the performance would still be a rather noticeable bump. I know its only 6Gb and not an 8Gb card but I'm doing OKish today on only 3Gb so its still double.

From what it seems like the closest card to the 780Ti is the GTX 1060 3GB (both slighly faster than the 970 and slightly worse than the 980). 60% sounds about right https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...ming_X/28.html (100% [1660Ti] / 61% [1060 3GB] = 64% increase).

Honestly, can't really go wrong with any card in your price bracket.

I just upgraded from a 780ti to a rtx2080 big jump in performance. For what you are after like most are recommending 1660ti or rtx2060
Put the cards your considering into the benchmarker and you will get an idea of performance difference.
