My 970 JUST died.. I'm devastated... I was planning on upgrading to a 2070 or whatever the line up of Nividia GPUs was going to be... Question is what do I do? I have some cheapy old GPUs laying around I'm using right now to get by... Should I stick with these and wait for the 2070 or should I buy a 1070ti right now? 4k is honestly not something I even really care about... And I'm worried I'll get burnt on release of Nividia's new cards as they're probably marginally better and don't really want to wait.

Going to be going to microcenter tonight... 1060/1070/1070ti or wait for 2070?

Thanks guys, been out of the hardware loop for a looooong time now.

Edit: Here's what I'm looking at buying, if I buy... but please if you have suggestions let me know.

You do realize you can get a 1060 from evga for like 200 right. Ah nvm it sold out, there is still one for 250 the mini one. Either way tbh buying any of these cards now at those prices is stupid. The used market is flooded. Hell 1080 hybrid was 499 at amazon today.

Grab a cheap 1050 or 1050ti and sit on it until next gen or just use your old cards.

Thanks for the replies... not really interested in buying used. I know it's a bad time but who knows what these cards have been through nowadays...

Edit: For anyone interesting in known, I bought a sweetly priced open box GTX1070ti for 389... I know it's a bad time to buy oh well... this card will suit me fine
