Hi all, so my dust-old amd hd 6950 is about to break down (black artifacts) and I'm itching for a replacement for a while now.
I wanted to ask for your recommendations.
I mostly play Grip and Overwatch, both at 1680x1050 (so far, an upgrade to 1080p would be reasonable). Managed to squeeze out about 40 fps on overwatch and about 30-40 (tanking at times) in Grip. I'd very much like stable 60++ fps in both of these.
My whole specs are as follows:
Processor: Core i7 2500K @ 3.4 Ghz , Sandy Bridge (native)
GPU: AMD 6950 HD 2gb.
Mainboard: Asus P8P67
16GB ddr3 ram
power supply: 530W be quiet! Pure Power
storage: 1 tb SSD
I was eyeing for a gtx 1060 (218€ for 3gb, ~270€ for 6 gb) or even the 1070 (400-500€) (probably an overkill, as I don't usually play the very demanding high end games as Battlefield).
However I rarely buy a new graphics card, so I'd like to prepare for the future aswell (Prob. 4 Years).
I guess anything at this point will be a substantial upgrade.
Thank you for your suggestions!
