Well, yeah, faster is better, but I wouldn’t be shocked if he could sell his 2060 for more than 3070 msrp. Then keep eyes open for a 3090 at msrp and sell the 3070 at near the same price.The card you actually want this gen is the 3080 - the 3070 is a fair bit slower, but with the current supply situation you gotta take what you can get.
That exactly what I did.
$480 well spent!
Plus remember, it's not important how 'ancient' your CPU is.
You can always simply move the card to a new build when you decide to upgrade your CPU, motherboard and RAM (and probably PSU).
It will scale with the upgrade quite nicely up to 1440p.
