Is it worth upgrading from this GTX 980 to this Vega 56? My computer’s inside an NCASE M1, so I imagine the blower style cooler will be better for cooling, but is the performance upgrade worth 220€? Or should I wait for the next generation of graphics cards to come out?
To give some context, I want to play Red Dead Redemption 2 at 2560x1440 60Hz, and I’d like to spend no more than 250€.

Thanks for the advice, guys.
The GTX 1660 Super is not quite as powerful as a Vega 56, and it cost 30€ more, but this way I can move my computer out of the NCASE M1 and into a Lian-Li PC-TU100, it should still be a noticeable upgrade from the GTX 980.
As for Red Dead Redemption 2, when I get around to buying it I'll use these two videos to tweak the settings:
But I'm not in any rush; I've decided to stick to cool and quiet graphics cards under 250€ from now on, so I may leave playing RDR2 another ~4 years ;)
