I have a 8 gigs ddr3 2400
an intel 4670k at 4.3
and I am rocking a gtx 670
I need a decent gaming video card upgrade without breaking the bank. Right now on 1080, but would like hit 1440 when my monitor goes TU. it's 7 years old.

Thoughts?

AMD RX580 can be had for less than $200, and will handle 1440P very well, if you want to stay with Nvidia I would look for a second hand GTX 1070.

Yes RX580 8GB will be a good choice. Although 1660 non ti overclocked matches 1660ti but 6gb ram may be a problem 3 years from now at 1440p.

RX 580. It comes with 2 free games and most 580's can be had for $200 and LESS. On sale you can find 580's for as low as $160, with two free games at $60 value, that amounts to paying only $40 for your graphic card.

So you essentially buy 2 games, add $40 and you get a graphic card, that is a sweet deal. You have a choice of 3 new games as well, Resident Evil 2, Division 2, and Devil May Cry. All new, triple A $60 games.

RX 580 if you're happy at 1080p (and interested in the bundled games), 1070 or 1660TI if you want 1440p.

The 580 struggles at 1440p in many newer games unless you are willing to dial back settings a fair amount.

Though, it really depends on what you mostly play. The 580 will be fine for 1440p if you mostly play older games or games like Fortnite or Apex Legends.

I think for 1440p a cheap used 1070/1070ti would be as far as i would go.Would be pretty dang good for 1080p as well.I think the 8gb will be future proof too given you seem to be more about keeping a gpu for a VERY long time.Any titles you may play in the future that include RT will be bottlenecked by both the i5 and 8gb most likely.No point in the RT tax with a RTX card.

I do know for certain my i5 4460 and 8gb held back my 1070ti at both 1080p and a bit at 1440p as well.Given you got a oc i think a 1070 would be a perfect fit.People find them occasionally around $200 used.

What is your budget? I would probably go with an RX 580 or GTX 1660, but if you can spend more on other upgrades as well such as more ram and the 1440p monitor, then I would also consider higher cards if possible.
