I've just completed a new build with the following hardware:

  • Ryzen 7 2700x CPU
  • Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB CPU Cooling
  • Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra gaming mobo
  • 32GB Corsair Vengeance RAM (2 x 16 GB modules)
  • Adata XPG SX8200 Pro 1TB M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe SSD as my primary drive running Windows 10
  • Crucial MX500 2.5" SSD as 2nd SSD
  • Seagate Barracuda 4TB SATA III 3.5" Hard Drive to store all files, photos, etc.

 

Now I have 2 GFX cards and need to know which one is best for my needs, which is for photo editing, occasional gaming, general computer work & internet. I will keep the better card and return the other. I am not much for understanding benchmarks, etc. and most of the reviews talk about things I don't even know. Anyway, the 2 cards are:

  • Zotac NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB Mini
  • Sapphire RX 590 Nitro+ Special Edition (8GB GDDR5/PCI Express 3.0/1560MHz/2100MHz)

 

Or, can anyone recommend a better card in the same price range?

 

Appreciate all help.

 

TIA

What is the brand and model name or number of the PSU, this is a major factor when choosing a new GPU.

 

Benchmarks place the GTX 1070 above the RX590, for good measure a third card has been added to the comparison and comes out on top, benchmarks here

Power supply is Corsair TX-M Series 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold Certified.

 

I am now considering the MSI GEFORCE RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC Turing Graphics Card
