Is 2060 Super sweet spot for 3440x1440 gaming?
In all the craze of the sales over the last couple of days, I snagged myself a $300 35" 3440x1440 monitor (unbelievable bargain, really). If you must know, it's a Monoprice Zero-G 35" Gaming Monitor. I bought it mostly because it will come in super handy for my work from home, but the gaming side of it is a nice bonus!
It'll arrive in a few days, so meanwhile, I'm researching on which video card I should get to support the new monitor. Right now, I'm running a GeForce 970. I know it can run games at that resolution, but only if I'm willing to crank the quality settings WAY down.
I'm looking long and hard at a 2060 Super, but the Radeon 5700 XT isn't out of the question, either. I know both are perfectly capable cards for what I'm looking for. I'm leaning towards the 2060 only because I hear a lot about driver issues with the Radeon, not to mention that I'd have to go through the hassle of COMPLETELY removing any NVIDIA drivers/software from my PC prior to installing the Radeon. That's a pain I'd like to avoid.
So, is the 2060 Super good for high, or even ultra, quality settings for some of the games I want to play on my new monitor? Examples would be the Exodus series, Witcher games (all 3), and probably some incoming games like Cyberpunk and Kerbal Space Program 2. Flight Simulator is also possible down the road, but I know that game punishes a lot of cards. I should note, I'm far more interested in FPS than I am in refresh rate (doesn't hurt, but it's not like I'm gaming competitively, so it's irrelevant in my book).
Final question: When will the 2060 Super cards be back in stock, if at all? (Mayfield Hts., OH location)
