upgrading PC


I'm currently running a Ryzen 7 2700x with a 2070 Super. I'm in the market to upgrade, i want to get into 1440P gaming now. However, i'm troubled on graphics cards. I can not decide if the 4080 is worth the extra $400 over the 4070 TI. I will be paring it with a 13600k processor and DDR5 ram. I am looking for a hand on what to decide. Thank you!

    I did some quick research and found a few links to help you decide!


    If you are more concerned about getting the best value for your investment, then the Nvidia RTX 4070 is the way to go. Not only is it a very competent 4K graphics card, it's arguably the best 1440p graphics card you can get, and even with the 20% price hike, it's the most affordable next-gen card you can buy.

    Still, the RTX 4070 is a 1440p graphics card at its core, and it's meant to strike a middle ground rather than go whole hog on performance. For that, you have the RTX 4080, which frankly runs circles around the RTX 4070 when it comes to gaming. You have to swallow the premium that comes with all that performance, but if you're willing to do so (and the RTX 4090 is just a step too far for you), then the RTX 4080 is the card you'll want.

    I personally wouldn't know which one is better, but I hope these help a little!!!
