    Nvidia's current GPUs will be end of life in 3 months but don't let that worry you. Such a perfect time to upgrade :rolleyes:

    I'd have to agree, I'm not sure you'd be happy with the....not large jump in performance. If 1070 is working ok atm then wait to see what the new gen cards bring, only a few months to go tbh.

    Just keep adding to it if you can, even if it's 60/70 more then the 3070 may be reachable (and that'll be perfect for 1440p/144 and last you a good while).

    You could be like me, still rocking a HD7970 with a 2500k :D Seriously with the games I play, I've not needed anything else at 1080p.

    I think the arrival of Cyberpunk and the nextgen will be a hill too steep for the old girl. I'll wait for the Ryzen 4000 series and whatever midrange GPU's arrive before upgrading.

    You need to fiddle with Ubisoft games, which are a mess. I have a Vega 56 (so not far off a 5700) and it struggles with the latest AC games and the latest GhostRecon, I have to turn some settings down. I suppose I'm on an ultrawide, but still the AC games weren't performing anywhere near as well as the Tomb Raider games

    Recently upgraded from a GTX 1070 to a 5700XT.

    A good solid step up in performance, worth it.

    I recently upgraded from my gtx 1070 to a rtx 2070, managed to pick it up at a great deal at £389.99 and also selling my old 1070, which seemed a lot cheaper than I thought! I can seeing people on here saying there's no point to the upgrade but I'm going to argue with that, I think they're wrong! I upgraded to 1440p 144hz and although the 1070 was okay at this resolution, it made such a difference with the 2070 ESPECIALLY in newer games, I could almost have 100% boost in performance!

    For me I'm a sucker for quality/performance and the RTX 2070 hits the nail on the head with performance to cost ratio!

    I got the Palit rtx 2070 dual card if you want to know :)

    1080p @ 75hz, that 1070 should still be fine.

    What fps are you gettin in the games you play?

    Yea. Save your money for the Nvidia 3000 series. Madness to spend now.

    Yeah I'd wait if I was you. However if you can afford it then get a 5700XT. It's what I've done and I plan to get the XT cpus and then 4000 series and amds new gpu end of year, but it's what I do, my 5700XT is the powercolor twin fan, used to be £338.

    Probably best to wait especially with current stock levels. I have a GTX1080 but the GTX1070 is still good for 1080p gaming on very high or ultra settings depending on the game and get at least 60fps. Im gonna wait until cyberpunk is out and see what performance is like and for what AMD and Nvidia will release around then. It seems with everyone looking to Cyberpunk both companies will be looking to make some good sales :)

    If your motherboard and favoured game titles support SLI, I would not rule that out as an alternative avenue, especially given you can bag a (used) 1070 for relatively little - I had two 1070's in SLI prior to my 1080ti and in a fair few titles such as Project Cars 1 & 2 the SLI 1070's actually outperform my current 1080ti by a noticeable margin.
