    Hey guys I have some questions

    I ordered a RTX 2060 to replace my old GTX 970 cuz I like to play everything in max settings and the GTX 970 begins to suffer with the new games of 2019.

    So my first question is, I made a good choice ?
    My second one is, its enough 6GB for my resolution ?

    Im running 1080p resolution, and I have no plans to change it.

    yes, the 2060 will be a great upgrade. And yes, 6gb vram is plenty at 1080p.

    You should be fine, here is a video about current VRAM usage in games with GTX2060, even though it's been tested for 1440p resolution.

    Get a 2070 instead, it will last you longer.

    6GB is enough even for 1440p and also still OK for most 4K (of course a 2060 won't run 60FPS 4K on most modern titles.) But it might not age as well as a 2070. For 1080p though, it should last quite a while. For 1440p, it depends on your target FPS; if you intend to switch to a 1440p high refresh monitor at some point and want to target "better than 60", a 2070 would be more future-proof.

    Anyway, TLDR: perfectly fine card for 1080p and high FPS.

    That's a huge upgrade. I also use 1080p and my 1060 handles everything just fine.
