Hello All

 

Have the money,  now just to decide on which card, and get it ordered asap

 

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER MINI 8GB GDDR6 256-bit 14 Gbps Gaming Graphics Card, IceStorm 2.0, Super Compact, ZT-T20610E-10M

 

Or 

 


MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti DirectX 12 GTX 1660 TI VENTUS XS 6G OC 6GB 192-Bit GDDR6 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

 

1080P Gaming

Asus G11CD-K Desktop (pre built)

Intel I7 7700

16gb DDR4

Current video card

Geforce 1050 2gb

Western Digital SSD

and Western Digital Black 1tb storage

 

Games played

Battlefield 4

Need for Speed payback

American truck simulator

Grand Theft Auto v

Secondlife

Euro Truck simulator

 

Minor video encoding at times,  watching shows on youtube or Netflix off and on

 

Hope this covers all the usual pre questions,  and such,  plan to buy as soon as possibly can,  though disabled so hard to buy at times, and might have to figure out how to get a gift card to purchase online 

 

Bottleneck calculator said i'd have a bottleneck with Processor if I chose the 2060, is that correct or false?

Well Budget is up to $399, or I can go higher a little bit if need be.

 

And Will continue reading reviews right up to purchase submitted time

With a 7700? I'd doubt it...

If you are only considering those two cards, I'd opt for the 2060 personally.  You'll get better performance in most situations.  Enjoy your new card when you get it, whichever you end up with!

Thank you, i'm sure I will enjoy it, and leaning towards the 2060 at this point...but will keep reading the reviews, then get it purchased, then installed, and should be set.

Between a 2060 Super and a 1660ti ... the 2060 Super w/o question.

You should consider the Radeon RX 5700 XT.

 

It's $399 and it's almost as fast as the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
