I was originally planning on upgrading my main rig to the new RTX2070, but with price bump and the less-than-expected performance increase seen with the rtx1080, I'm unsure of what to do. My current system is a [email protected] / ASRock Z68 ext3gen3 / 2x8GB [email protected] / Zotac 1070 AMP My budget is around the equivalent of USD$500. I probably don't need to upgrade, but wanted to cheer myself up. For the price of what I paid for my gtx1070 2 years ago, right now I can get a....erm.....1070. The games I play are Helldivers, Slime Rancher, Borderlands 2, CSGO, TF2, Truck Simulators on 4k60fps Here are what my options are: (sorted from least to highest spending) Scenario 1: Swap my 2500k @ 4.5GHz for a 1230v2 @ 3.5GHz and hopefully the extra threads and pci-e 3.0 will last me 1 more year. Scenario 2: Wait for benchmarks of the 2070 and then wait 1+ more years for the rtx2070 to actually drop to msrp prices. Scenario 3: Get a 1st gen Ryzen 7 system. AMD Ryzen 7 1700x / ASRock X370 Gaming K4 / ADATA Premier DDR4 2666MHz 16GB (1x16GB) Scenario 4: Get a Ryzen+ 5 system instead. AMD Ryzen 5 2600 / ASRock B450M PRO4 / ADATA Premier DDR4 2666MHz 16GB (1x16GB) Other: get something else instead such as an office chair or a new router or new monitor or headphones.
