    better get those than 6600/3060 imo. a lot more performance for a small premium, and he'll be able to get a 1440p high refresh in the future.

    Don t buy 3060ti for 1080p, ur better off with a 3060 , the only exception, warzone 2.0, if u play that, u might need a 3070, 3060 could be just enough to maintain those 120s and 130fps so that u don t feel input lag with freesync, i d say 120 fps is gonna be ok for 144hrz freesync, but not.less

    I say buy it, the price difference isn't big and you're leaving yourself open to the option of going 1440p 144hz

    True or you can game at 1080p with 3060ti it will easily handle even raytracing.
