What would be a worthwhile upgrade over a GTX 780Ti for about $200-300?

    I have a 6 year old rig and was wondering if a $200-300 investment on a new GPU might freshen it up? It is a Core i7-4770K based system with an eVGA 1300 80+ PSU and Samsung EVO SSD

    Used 1070/1080 would be the best.

    That's a horrible recommendation, Pascal is being phased out. And who the hell wants a four year old used card?

    They are cheap and still decent. You are the guy who bought a 1660ti and selling it a two months later, thats a horrible decision.

    Or a 1070Ti, most of them still are under warranty for a few months. Bought one second hand in November last year, great card for the money i payed, about 300$. They now sell for about 250$ where i live.

    it's a new rebrand, they'll call them RTX super or something like that, expected around AMD's 7nm GPU launch next month. 7.7.2019.

    anything blow rtx2060/gtx1070 will be significantly slower.

    you want to go for that 2060 and up your budget if you can't wait or can't get the deal, or simply wait for the AMD cards, anything below that simply performs much worse.

    So? If I can get a newer and more powerful card without losing any money it would be stupid not to.

    Wait a few weeks for refreshed Turing and get RTX 2060 or RTX 2060 "Super" or RTX 2070.

    RTX 2060 non-Super is on par with GTX 1080 and Vega 64.

    RTX 2070 is 15-20% faster than all of these.

    If you need something cheap look at the VEga 56 pulse, great card for the money, trade blows with the 1070 ti and on vulkan is faster then a 1080.

    Compare ref to ref or custom to custom. Vega 56 is between 1070 and 1070 Ti performance-wise.

    I'd rather look at Navi offerings or Nvidia 2000 series (RTX Super incoming, price drops will happen on existing models)

    Or second hand 1070 Ti, 1080, 1080 Ti ...

    To me, this is a problem with buying such a high tiered card (xx80Ti). If you ever want to go cheaper, you kind of need to wait 2 or 4 more generations to have it make any real fiscal sense. Otherwise, you buy the same tier again.


    Even my 1070 (a decent option here) isn't that dramatic an upgrade over the 780 Ti (I have both in use now). It's clearly superior, but I think your best bet is to get lucky on the used market or wait just a little bit longer for Nvidia to release their refresh. Should drop pricing a little.

    I think the 780ti is still a decent performer and tbh paired with the i7 4770k, i wouldnt spend anymore upgrades on it. Im guessing you game on 1080p.
    Id get a new system next year :) more exciting.

    With 200 to 300 get a vega 56, Great card for the price, you cant get better.
