    Hello,

    I currently have gtx 970 and 4770k and I am wondering should I upgrade. Will my cpu 4770k bottleneck rtx 2060 at 1080p@60Hz? And if not which brand you guys recommend? Msi, Asus, EVGA

    I got a 2070 and a 4770K overclocked to 4.4 GHz and, while I'm sure there are bottlenecks here and there in the newer games (most noticeable in Assassin's Creed Origins and Odyssey, in the cities), it's nothing to worry about and the CPU seems to be holding up quite well considering its age. The 2070 offers a noticeable improvement over my former 980 ti. A 2060 should be right between these two cards in performance and should be a fantastic upgrade coming from a 970. So, my advice is to go for it, but make sure to OC your CPU if you haven't already.

    ASUS, MSI and eVGA are the top brands, any of them should be fine. Personally, I like eVGA and MSI. My 980 ti and 2070 are both MSI cards.

    Nope
    If you had 144Hz monitor then yes but it would be still pretty much irrelevant as frame rates would be still pretty high

    Your CPU is capable to handle RTX2060, I don't think there will be any bottleneck atleast on 1080p

    I'm running an i7 970 and it's fine.
    You should be fine as well.

    I bought asus one. Oc-ed cpu to 4.3 and division 2 beta works on ultra very good. Very good performance 2060 have. Low consuption, low temps. Very nice gpu I must say.
