Hey everyone! I'm stuck on deciding what GPU i should get. Wondering if I can get some suggestions please!
I'm a designer and my main use for this setup is digital art, 3D and Vid recording. I occasionally play games but not any high demanding titles. (Overwatch etc).
I currently use 3x 1440p monitors (2x60hz & 1x144hz).

I am upgrading my whole set up this month and my build will be -
Ncase M1
Ryzen 9 3950x
NZXT Kraken X52
Corsair SF600 Platinum 600W
ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact
G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32GB 3600MHz CL16 DDR4


I really want to save money by keeping my current GPU (EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti HYBRID GAMING) But i cant figure out anyway to fit the 120 aio without sacrificing the X52.

So i guess the next option is to buy a new GPU around the $450ish mark, but basically something that I can still use to game at 1440p.
Should I get the 1660 super? Or look into RTX?

I hate myself for buying an aio GPU ?

Cheers!

Well, when you mention 3 monitors at 1440p, only thing that comes to mind is a rtx 2080ti. A 3950x is very expensive, so why not go all out too when you basicly got no budget?

If you are happy with your current 980Ti as far as gaming goes, then a 1660 Super might not provide similar experience as it is weaker. With a 450ish USD budget, a 2060 Super is a better choice.

Maybe buying an Accelero III would be cheaper than buying a new gpu? Or buying a "for parts" 980ti off ebay?
Oh man! I never thought of modding my current gpu! Thanks! Gives me more options to think about now. :)

Yea, im afraid that it would be a lot of difference with the 1660 Super. There's currently some awesome deals for the 1660 super though (around $320aud) which im considering. Just hope it wont be too different. Either that or ill look out for a 2060 Super during christmas. Thanks!

But having 3 1440p monitors would only matter if i game on all 3 at the same time yeah? I definitely have a budget, as im stretching it already. I only need to upgrade due to work. GPU is secondary for now since most of the programs I use is more CPU intensive. Would love to go a 2080ti though haha~
