Thinking of upgrading my 780Ti

I'm not a heavy gamer. My 780Ti mostly handles the titles I occasionally play. They include the Crysis series, Skyrim, Civ V and IV and Kingdom Come: Deliverance. I tend to play at 2560x1440 at whatever detail level that gives me 50-60 FPS (and I'm OK with the occasional drops to 40ish). As I close in on age 60, frame rates down to 35 or so really don't bother me that much but I do prefer staying above 40. I do like to throw a few mods into the mix so I think the 3GB ram on the card may be holding me back in these titles at least as much as the GPU is. I'm not looking for RTX 2080 quality, just a decent upgrade without breaking the bank. I have no idea what to consider.



What should I consider?

Vega 64 or 1070 Ti gets my vote, 2070 if you care (lol) about RTX.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)

For today's games @1440 p 60Hz, u won't need a rtx 2070, the only games it can't fully max (ignoring RT) at that res. and get over 60FPS was like FC5, Deus Ex:MKD, and thats about it.

A used 980Ti would probably be enough in most games, but it's old. So what about 1070ti, rtx 2060, the vega 56, gtx 1660 ? The market really thins out at the top

Depending on the country, a 1080 is way over priced and also overpowered for your needs, same for V64 imo. A RX 580 is not enough power, if u want to max setting and be near 60FPS

If skyrim is apart of the gaming list, be sure to get as much VRAM as possible especially if you mod with high textures. It'll eat 6gb in a hurry.

I'd also suggest SkyrimSE, not oldrim simply as it's a 64bit process and better manages hardware resources.

The RX 580 is an excellent deal, but it's only around the level of a 970 ti or 980 iirc, so I guess thats not very far ahead of a 780Ti. The RX 590 is probably around a 980ti level. If money is no real issue tho, I'd go more power than them tho.

Enjoy your games young man, LOL.

I think I've narrowed it down to a 2060 or 1660Ti. In looking at benchmarks, the 1660Ti competes fairly well with the 2060 for about 70 bucks less and would likely provide a noticeable bump from where I am. I can't see myself buying into the ray trace stuff for a while so perhaps the 1660Ti is the target for now?

I was gonna recommend the 1660ti. Almost equals a 1070ti in both 1080p & 1440p. Seems like better perf. for the price compared to the 2060 or 1070ti.

2060 ... maybe Vega 56

I wouldn't go lower for 1440p unless you want to upgrade in a year or two again

Well, I do not see myself upgrading again in the next year or two, four to six maybe but not a year or two. I simply don't put enough hours in anymore to justify that frequency of a refresh cycle. As it is, I get between 60 and 90 minutes a week (in a good week) to enjoy a bit of game play. I haven't updated my video card in 5 years nor have I updated the CPU in over 4 years (and have no plans to do so until my 4790K can no longer run the software I use) so I don't just upgrade on a whim. Budget wise I'm thinking the 1660TI or the 2060 are about the limit of what I can personally justify based on my use cases and I'm not sure the performance difference between them merits the 70 or so dollars. I think the Vega 56 is just a little too high priced to consider.

Honestly, if you plan on keeping it for that long, I would look for a used 1070/TI/1080 or a Vega 56/64 (unless you can get one for <$300 new). The 6GB vRAM on the 1660Ti/2060 might not look so great in a few years.
