I just picked up a new monitor (34" Ultra Wide 1440p 144MHz 1500R Curve Samsung Panel -VA) to replace my 3 monitor setup (24" ASUS 1080p). Now I need a new video card to drive the monitor.

My current rig is:

Intel Core i-7 4770k Processor
32GB DDR3 Memory
Gigabyte Z97MX-Gaming 5 Motherboard
Radeon RX 570 Video Card

This card is going to struggle to push anything more than low to medium graphics on games with this new monitor. Where I'm torn is the cost of new video cards.

If I'm looking hard enough, I can stumble across an open box 5600 for $200 or $230 new. A 5700 for $320 (open box) or $350 new. But at that point... why would I just not drop another $100 for the 6700 at $449?

Ultimately... that makes the 5700 a non player and I'm left choosing between a 5600 at $230 or a 6700 at $450. I'd rather not spend an extra $220 but I feel like the 6700 would probably be the last video card my current build sees.

Then what about the 20x series by nVidia? By paying a touch more I get Ray Tracing which is cool but I'm not paying for a 2080, for what I would pay for a 2070 I may as well snag one of the new AMD cards. A 2060 is going for $320 new... I don't know that Ray Tracing is worth nearly $100.

Better yet... do any of you fellow nerds have an itch to update and want to sell me their 5k/20x series cards?

Meh, the budget cards will drop in January.

I need to update my rig but I dont want to spend 1000+.

Current GPU prices are ridiculous

While I realize that Dirt Rally isn't a killer game to get benchmarks off of... this is what I got on a benchmark at "High" quality.

RTX 3060 for $399. 1440p gaming, faster than a 2080, for a really reasonable price.

I'm thinking 3070 Ti will end up being my sweet spot.

Or I might just wait and upgrade everything to 4K when the 4000 series come out in a couple of years.

1060 vs. 3090

Kind of an apples to oranges comparison. According to Zotacs website their 3090 isn't even a half inch longer than their 2080 ti AMP Edition card.

Is that your picture? Because that 1060 almost looks like a mini card the way it ends right after the PCI slot. Looks more like their 1050 Low Profile card.

Here is the picture I took during installation of my 3090

this is vs a to80ti founders, which is a pretty beefy card in its own right

I picked this up last month. Snagged the Amazon credit card and got $100 extra off the purchase price. 34 inches of 3440x1440 gloriousness.

Not my pic. From reddit. You might be right about the model.

FYI... This monitor has gotten really good reviews from multiple sources. Both GSync and FreeSync compatible. 165Hz capable with DisplayPort connection. Supposed to be a real steal for the price point:
