recently built new pc with i7-8700k, 16 gb memory. didn't have enough money for a new gpu so re-used my Radeon R9 390 Gaming.

Trying to decide what to buy to upgrade it. Leaning towards RTX 2060 at the moment. Would love to get a higher end model but they are way to expensive.

My monitor is 1920x1080.
Actually, the games I am playing now are working fine with the 390 so maybe I should just hold off on upgrading until I actually need it?

Can't think of any games I want to play right now that might require something better.

If you don't actually need the performance then waiting is probably the best decision, you should get much better value for your money when Navi arrives.

If your gaming a 1080P, I would not bother with a video card right now, an RTX 2060 is overkill for 1080P gaming.

If I was in your shoes, I would invest in a really nice monitor, 4K or a 1440P high refresh rate gaming monitor, then grow into it with time.
