Hello, I am looking to upgrading my GPU.

I currently run a GTX 660 with a Ryzen 1600 @ 3.9 GHz on a 1080p 75Hz Freesync. Monitor might be upgraded to a 1440 or more.

I am between these two cards. Keep in mind I want a long run GPU that will hold for some years on at least 1080p for now and 1440p later on.

RX580 https://www.computeruniverse.net/en...lor-radeon-rx-580-red-devil-golden-sample.asp

GTX 1070Ti https://www.computeruniverse.net/en/products/90722762/inno3d-geforce-gtx-1070-ti-ichill-x3-v2.asp

Games Played:
Battlefield games, Fallout 4/76 , World of Tanks, Doom 2016. Prefer to max them out.

Thank you

I would go with the 1070ti in all honesty

For raw gaming performance the 1070 beats the 580 by quite a bit so the 1070 TI would be even better.
If you're trying to save money and intend on getting a FreeSync/AdaptiveSync panel the 580 is still a good option. I have a 1080 and a 144hz 1440p panel and have no issues getting games to run fast enough for my panel. I don't play any new AAA titles but Doom and Fortnite run over 144 fps with mixed high/ultra settings. I could probably max out both games but I try to keep my minimums as high as possible. If i were the kind of person that had to max out every option even if it doesn't look any better I'd still have no issues keeping 72 or 60 fps.

I'd pick the 1070 TI of the two cards but new cards will be out in a few months so you might wait and see if you can get a 1080 or 1080 ti for a similar price or even get the new 1170.

Hi,
Just the boost clocks alone tells the story but yeah 1070ti all the way.

If you can wait a little longer I'd do that. You can either get todays cards cheaper (new/used) or get a new 1170 which may out perform my 1080.

For the budget I'm not sure why the 580 was ever an option? There's what 130 euros difference? If there's a bang for buck consideration there...neither of those cards are all that great when p/p is taken heavily.

Oh I should probably ask what sort of games you play. 1080p will be easy on both cards for a long time or possibly forever. If you plan on 1440p/144hz waiting for the next GPUs is a really good idea if you intend on keeping the GPU for a long time. If you can't wait I'd probably get the fastest card you can afford to get.
A 1080 is plenty for 1440p now but when next gen cards hit the newest games will get harder and harder to run unless something changes. As I said before most games that I can't run on ultra settings over 144fps usually don't NEED 144fps. IMO 72-60fps with ultra in open world/exploration/role playing games is great and I don't see a GPU coming that can run every game on ultra at 1440p with 144 fps minimums.
A 1070 TI is probably plenty fast enough for 1440p for a long time but that really depends on what your standards are for graphic settings and the type of games you play. Had I not killed my 980 I'd probably still be using it.

I play on a 1080p monitor for now but i plan on getting a 1440p or an even higher one. My budget is about 500 eu for now. I play World of tanks, GTA V, Doom 2016 and most battlefield 4/fallout4 (and 76 when its out). I dont mind about playing at only 60 hz. my current one is a 75 hz with freesync but its only 22 inches.

Hi,
As long as you can fit the wildly long 1070ti you posted too it should run pretty cool :)
Hopefully it has a pretty good oc tuning utility that can deal with all three fans
My 1080ti ftw3 also has 3 fans and only evga precision can control them all.

I have the Corsair Obsidian 450D it can fit any GPU due to the empty front :)
