I am speccing a new computer I would like to buy and I am not sure if its worth going for a RTX 2070s or paying a bit extra for the 3070.
I am hoping someone who knows more about PCs than me could help me decide. I currently use a 1050 but this new PC will much more powerful than my current one. I am happy to spend more on the 3070 if it is worth it over the 2070S
Any help would be greatly appreciated:-
The 2070s isn’t a bad card. However when you compare the price of it to the 3070 with the alleged performance then the 3070 is a much much better buy.
Something very obvious is that 3070 has newer architecture and drivers will improve over time to utilize the architecture…
If you think you might upgrade complete system in 2-3 years then 2070 super might make sense… but if you have budget to get 3070 it gives you a nice upgradability in future…
E.g. in 2 yrs you might have to upgrade CPU+mobo+ ram… you can keep 3070 1 more year and spend better in this upgrade… And later in a year or two you spend better on gpu upgrade… 2070 might get too old And won’t be wise all CPU + gpu + mobo+ ram together… it makes price double and will make you have the compromises in few things.
