So I'm looking to purchase a graphics card and I'm going to have $600~ by the end of the summer. Here are my preferred options:

  • Strix 2080 (I can get this for $630 after eBay sales)

  • Strix 2060 (I can get this for $340 after eBay sales)

  • Wait for Navi and hope the performance is good.

2080 or 2060 is going to depend on what resolution and desired frame rates you want to hit as well as what quality settings.

Navi is most likely not coming out this year. AMD stated they are only refreshing their product line for the rest of the year.

At best your looking at a reveal in Q4 with an actual launch next year with later retail availibility.

If you want higher quality settings then the 2080 although you might need settings turned down.

2060 can do that but would need settings reduced further then the 2080.

Navi would most likely be only further behind as it is intended as a Polaris replacement not Vega 56/64 replacement.

If you're getting a rtx 2060 at this point of time, it's better to get it new for 10 dollars more that has warranty and it's, of course, brand new.

If you're playing games 1440p 144hz, the rtx 2080 will hit that barrier at higher settings more often than the rtx 2060. The 2060 can reach it but may need to lower settings or slightly less demanding games to reach that barrier.

the strix 2060 usualy goes for $400~ though

Fixed the error. It should of been a 2080 not the ti lol.

And why specifically the strix 2060? You're screwing yourself over without that warranty to be honest and there's decent rtx 2060 for 350 dollars out there.

Mostly just for the looks and rgb software compatibility. And there's a pretty beefy heatsink too
