Hi people, need some thoughts on this. My current monitor is an ASUS 24 in 1920x1200 that’s probably over 5 years old. I want to upgrade to G-sync one (probably the Dell one that’s gotten a lot of good buzz, despite being a TN panel and not an IPS one: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Gaming-S2716DG-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B0149QBOF0 ).
So given that rather modest ambition, should I go for a 1070, a 1070 Ti or a 1080? The price of a 1070 vs a 1080 MSI Gaming X is right around 100 bucks (435 vs 535 after a $25 MIR this month). I’m a little leery of going for the 1070 Ti, given how new it is.
Datapoints: my mobo is an ASUS Z170-A and the CPU is an i7-6700. 16 GB of 3000 MHz DDR4 RAM. The games I’d be playing would be stuff like the current big AAA games (AC Origins, Wolfenstein II, etc. but also older ones, at native resolution or at the highest one supported). And my current card is a 970 (also a twin-fan MSI).
Thanks for any advice.
