It is time to update my EVGA 660 GTX video card. I play very few
games maybe a couple a year, and by the time I get one it is usually
an old one so I am by no means a gamer. However, I routinely do video
editing and I want to be able to support 4K. My PC is already
equipped for 4K= I7 6/core, 64 GB of RAM, Samsung SSDs and I will be
replacing my monitors with 4K supported monitors. But for now I want
to start with the video card and I am far more interested in PC 2D
performance then anything else.
I am debating between a EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, 8GB
GDDR5, and a EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB FTW+ GAMING ACX 3.0, 6GB GDDR5
... a 110 difference in cost and of course the 1070 consumes more
power and produces more heat... hmmmm
So what does the collective and our gamers think. Is moving up to the
1070 a wise decision or am I just wasting my money for performance I won't use.
