Hello, I "stole" the graphics card from my old build (my wife's new build) and I want to put it back so she can game with me. I am hoping to find an upgrade instead of just getting another 1060 so do you guys have any suggestions. No real budget but $1000 is my max

Double checking....$1000 max ceiling including the above linked build? or just the GPU?

What display resolution and refresh rate are you running? (eg. 1080p 144hz/etc)

If the linked build is included in the budget:

  • is this for gaming only?

  • maybe link up your old build as some parts may be relevant for the newer one.

  • can you share the parts belonging to the older build

$1000 for just graphics card I alread have the rest of the build I'm just looking to switch out the graphics card. I run 144hz 1080p

$1000 opens up greater possibilities which are more inclined to higher resolution gaming with the likes of a RTX 2080 SUPER ($700-$750) or a RTX 2080 TI ($1000-$1050).

For 1080p 144hz I wouldn't look past the RTX 2070 SUPER which is achievable for around $500. The higher end cards at 1080p will deliver a small performance gain for a vastly fattened up asking price. For eg:

  • 2070 SUPER averages around 130-140fps in demanding games on top settings. Much higher FPS counts with lesser demanding titles with the likes of fortnite, overwatch, etc.

  • For a fat $200 more the RTX 2080 SUPER only delivers 10-20fps more (or 10-15% greater performance). Bad value

  • For a vastly fattened up $500-$600 more, the RTX 2080 TI only secures around 20-30fps more (or 20-25% greater perf). Terrible value!!

If you don't mind spending more and just want something superior for the budget prospect, I guess the RTX 2080 SUPER is doable. Personally I'd stick with a 2070 SUPER and look for an earlier upgrade path with greater performance gains in the near future (few years in the least).
