So I’m currently in the process of upgrading my PC, and am sort of stuck on the question of which graphics card to pick. I do quite a bit of gaming, and recently some machine learning (though rather basic stuff locally right now).
I’m looking for feedback on which card would provide the best value overall, and long term.
My candidates and the price I can get them at so far are:
GTX 1080 for ~520 EUR
GTX 1070 for ~400 EUR
RX Vega 64 for ~575 EUR
Vega 56 is out of the question since it’s currently not meaningfully cheaper, and even harder to get, and the 1070Ti is a similar story.
I do have a FreesSync monitor already, but not having FreeSync would not be a deal-breaker for me, just a nice-to-have.
If you’re buying today then I’d lean towards a 1080. While I personally find Freesync to be an awesome feature I wouldn’t buy any of the currently available Vega cards on account of their coolers. Hopefully the third party designs will be released in a couple of weeks, but nobody knows for sure yet.
I have my fingers crossed on finding a third party Vega 56 for the winter, but I can also wait so the choice is easier for me.
