RTX 2070 replacing GTX680 Sli

Ok, probably and old point, but I have been out of the OC scene for quiet awhile now and haven't change any HW in yonks.

is it worth me replacing my 2 x GTX 680 4GB (GIGABYTE GV-N680OC-4GD) with 1 RTX 2070?

Will it bring much improvements to my gaming?

Appreciate any insight / experience here.

Well a 680 sli would be close to a 1660 in performance. So yeah the 2070 would be a massive improvement. As long as your CPU doesn't bottleneck it.

It's far below, it loses to GTX1060 already.

a GTX 1070 would be a great used buy. It would absolutely demolish your SLI 680 setup, and still proves to be a great card for 1080 high refresh gaming.


you can find them very cheap these days, under 250 in some places
