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?

The problem, for me, is that by the time you can actually find these cards, say mid-2021, you're only going to be 6-8 months away from next gen. Am I going to pay $600 for a new card when it's about to be relegated to second place?

Now, I'll admit that this gen was a huge step up from the last. So it's entirely possible that the cards coming next year aren't that big of a jump. I don't know. I want to do a new build and I feel like I'm caught in no man's land.

The leaks about Ada Lovelace (4000 series) so far indicate another massive leap in performance. So you definitely have a good point.

Walked into MicroCenter a couple of days ago at 7:30 pm and I guess someone didn't show up for their voucher So I snagged a 3090 Card for a hefty price. I was looking more towards a 3080 or 3080TI(hopefully soon) but I guess You have to strike while you can. :-)

I hope this holds its value like my 1080Ti did, I paid $675 for it and now its worth more lolz.

How much is a 2080 worth right now?

Depends on who you ask, I mean i see them going for up to $1500. They are currently the most sought after card on the market and honestly should be around $700 or so.

*edited*

Thought you meant 3080, lolz 2080ti is probably still going for around 700 to 1000. 2080 probably around 600 too 800.

EVGA raised prices on all their 30xx cards due to the new China tax. Those currently on their wait list are grandfathered in to old prices until April 16.

You promised me it would only be 4 months tops. I'm holding you to that... :-)

I'm fairly certain my card is fucked. Bought this computer in 2011, I don't do much gaming on it. Put a new SSD in a few years ago, nothing else has really changed. It's always ran pretty well. I'm not great with these things. I open up the device manager and my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 has a yellow triangle and says "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

I've tried restarting, reinstalling, etc and I can't get anything to work. My screen is zoomed way in and I have lines across my screen. Considered just getting a new GTX 1080 and calling it a day since it's about $100. I'm sure the immediate thought is to get a new computer but I don't use it enough. Is there a different fix or is that my course of action?

That's a pretty old piece of hardware, man.

You can try downloading the latest driver they had for it and see if that helps.

If you're around KC, I have a Radeon 6870 that my friend borrowed and used for a few years. When he returned it some years ago, I never got around doing anything with it. It's from the same era as your 570 and still works. You can have it if you want it.
