So I now use a 43" UHD TV as a monitor and the PQ is very impressive. However i'd like to game in UHD on cyberpunk 2077.
If I enable UHD I see a huge improvement but as I have an RX580 it is very low FPS.
Handles Forza ok @ 1440p

What are my options at the moment, I hear there is a shortage of GPUS ?

What sort of price would I looking to be paying ?

Thanks

If you seriously want to play CP2077 with everything on ultra + RT at UHD then you will really need a 3080 as a minimum - I can just about get away with it on my 3070 but it isn't an ideal situation.

2080Ti 2nd hand for cheap. Mine does 4k 60hz solid with dlss on balanced. Everything else maxed apart from rtx and a few shadow settings.

Or a 3070/3080 if you can get one around the same price as the rrp founders edition (470 for 3070/ 649 for 3080). I wouldnt pay much more certainly not scalp prices.

No problems using my 3070FE on my X79 board which hasn't even heard of PCI-e Gen 4.

Fair enough. I heard lots of Mobo's have revised support for Gen 4. Compatability issues perhaps ?

Fair enough. Providing the 3060Ti works on the latest bios update i'm fine with that. After much reading, Gen 4 GPUS will work in Gen 3 interfaces
