Ok, so I'm coming from a (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125462) Gigabyte GV-N770OC- GTX 770 4GB.

I want to grab a 2070 but with the issues with the Micron chips, I don't want to get the wrong card. What is the sentiment right now beside a huge lack of price/performance reduction for this series. I would buy a 1080 ti but I just feel that going current gen is best option from the 770.

Thoughts?

If i got 1660 ti, i might as well just buy the 1080 ti. Better card with same capabilities. I know it's ultra cheap. but I am willing to spend the $5-600 for the 2070. But thank you for the suggestion.

well, the 2060 is $349, and slightly faster than a 1070. That might be an option. And I have heard nothing bad about any of them.

But you said:

1660ti is current gen, and fairly cheap, and a big leap over a 770. (as is a 2060, of course)
1080ti is not current gen.

But we don't know what your CPU is or what you intend to do with your new GPU.

The micron chip is some less intelligent people talking about stuff they dont know anything about. If you want a 2070 you get it, gamersnexus has debunked the "higher rma on rtx series" so has most other none usless tech people on youtube. All you got left is the less intelligent reddit crowd and about garbage level youtubers. I have the first batch of FE 2080TI with the micron chip first in the europe shipment. It does +1100Mhz for 24/7 load. According to this "people" this is not possible and the card should be dead long time ago yes. :rolleyes:

Actually building a new comp all together. But didn't want to post in the build guide section as this was just limited to the GPU. But for the sake of the question, Im going:

i5-9600k
32 GB DDR4-3000 Corsair Vengeance
Z390 Aorus Elite ATX
SX6000 Pro 1 TB M.2 SSD
BarraCuda 4 TB HHD

No real OC right now, will consider it with the option to OC the CPU

If you're concerned about some of the reported issues with the RTX series, whatever GPU you decide to go with, buy an EVGA card as they tend to have really good service if you should need it if you get a card that happen to give you "Space Invaders".

This is definitely what I've been seeing.

Went from an EVGA GTX780 to an EVGA RTX2060 (pushing 1920x1200 resolution)
VERY satisfied.Zero regrets.
Wouldn't even touch the 1660Ti unless there was some sort of budget constraint.

If you have the money for RTX2070, go for it. Bad cards were from the early batches from what I hear. Stick to EVGA if you are worried.

RTX 2060 would be a much better value, as its only 13% slower than the RTX 2070, yet something like 30% cheaper.

Alternatively you could buy the RTX 2080 which IS in fact a better and newer 1080ti. RTX 2070 is the worst card you can get right now.

i just pulled a GTX 970 from my PC and installed an RTX 2070 from EVGA. WOW what a difference. The bench number was doubled. I now wonder if there was something wrong with the 970.

apparently Kepler is going to be moved to legacy Support next month, so totally a good moment to get rid of it.

I know Kepler is old, but given how a 780 performs on most games and DX11 it feels like they should've waited until 2020 when the new consoles are out... oh well..
