Do I purchase? ( I am pretty darn picky about big ticket items... yes this is big for my budget )
At the moment I have a really good Radeon HD 7850 2gig DDR5, which with RoF on low low settings
can give some respectable frame rates, 150 fps + etc.
( how "good" the frames are is another matter )
It's been a really great card, however the RAM size is small and gpu clock speed is under 1ghz....
Do I want ray tracing ? NOPE.
Do I want 2K/4K/8K/16K ? NOPE.
Do I want VR ? NOPE.
Do I want Vsync ? No idea.
Do I want 1920 x 1080 at max FPS and max settings ? YES.
If/when I upgrade to this card my next upgrade will be 1MS, 144hz 1920x1080 monitor.
with all this new gear I expect to be future proof for the next 10 years.
( depending on how developers push their minimum specifications ...)
I do not want a giant monitor, VR or RGB lights or insane details in game with stupid bugs with
clouds etc. A wholesome reasonable size small picture that is fast and cheerful is all I need.
What do you think?
Is the 1660 SUPER the way to go? ( Swapping teams in the process too...)
