Upgrade from rx580 for 1080p gaming

Looking to upgrade my rx580. I game on a 1080p 144hz monitor, want something that can run AAA on Ultra 60+fps and esports Ultra 144fps. (Overwatch, R6S, Division 2, Metro Exodus for some examples) I was thinking a vega 56 or maybe rtx 2060? Is rtx any good and if not does it look promising? Around $500 USD budget.

Just get an RTX 2060, i currently use the 1070Ti and at 1440p 60hz i am very happy with it (came frrom a 1060 @ 1080p) and when i run it at 1080p (lolololl). The 2060 @ 1080p/144hz its super nice even more so cause its under YOUR $500 budget. But if the budget is burning a whole in your pocket there is also the 2070 for "around" that $500 mark.

Been thinking about it for a couple days. Think I'm going to wait to see what AMD has to offer. I've come to the conclusion that I just want a high end GPU and I want to be done with it for a few years. I was thinking about a used 1080ti, found a couple near the 500 ballpark range. But also not completely closed on 2080 ti, depending on the price. Thanks for the advise!

Honestly, f*&^ a 2080ti and 4k gaming as well, lol. (1440p /165hz) I was going off the notion from your post with $500 only but if your holding off then i would save a bit more and just get the 2080, have no regrets and never look back! :D

Right on! It started with 500 but moved up pretty quickly lol I just want something I'll have for awhile, looking at the 980 that thing is still kicking 5 years later!

Check out these benchmarks (Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 benchmarks: faster than the GTX 1070), including RTX 2060, 2070, 2080, GTX 1070, Vega 64.

I would love to help but sadly I have no knowledge. This video by Tech Deals shows you the comparisons between different RTX 2060 cards. More fans mean better cooling and overclocking potential. Hope you get your answers.

Would you sell your RX 580? and if so how much?

At the moment I'm not exactly sure. I've really been teetering with selling my PC whole and upgrading. But with ryzen 3000 right around the corner I want to hold off a little while longer and see what happens with prices.

The Vega cards are getting stupidly cheap right now, if you're willing to deal with a fairly hot card & most likely a blower cooler. I'm seeing 56's for $240 & 64's for $300 currently. Personally, I ponied up the cash for a Strix 2060. RTX or not, it's a really nice card. Peak temps are around 62C & it's dead silent. I don't think RTX will be a worthwhile feature for a good while yet, though. It looks really nice on Exodus, but I could live without it. I upgraded from an RX 480 & couldn't be happier. Either way, 1440p gamers have a lot of options right now. Also, Navi is right around the corner, so that might be worth waiting for.
