Good time to buy a GPU?
« on: August 04, 2020, 09:38:29 pm »
So I've been using a GTX 970 for a few years now and with all the heavy titles coming out this year (hzd, cyberpunk, valhalla etc) I was thinking of getting a 5600xt. With RDNA2 around the corner, is now a good time to upgrade bearing in mind I'll be gaming at 1080p.
