Hi

A gtx 1660 super is 50% faster the your gtx 970 but there's seems to be a shortage of graphics cards at the moment.

What's your budget ?

There are new cards some have been released with lower end ones released soon. Problem is availability as with most cards at the moment looks like your going to have to wait .

I have an i5-4690k @ 3.5Ghz
Z97P mobo
8GB ram

Just upgraded from a 970 to a 1660 Super (second hand, ebay, £170) and it's a really big upgrade. Runs ultra on everything but hairworks at 1440p on Witcher 3 @ 60 FPS and it's so SO much quieter than the 970. It's a Zotac and their Firestorm OC software has really made a difference too. Well worth the money for an aging system I first built in 2015.
