Will be gaming at either 1080p or 1440p so I'm thinking either a 1060 or 1070?

Anyone have specific models in mind? I was going to originally get a evga gtx 1070 ftw but i'm not sure if the cards overheating issue has been fixed and I don't really want to worry and get the thermal mod kit from them.

If I get a 1070 i'll be pairing it with a 27 inch 1440p monitor AT 75hz.

I have money but I'm hesitant to spend so much. My build is just under $2000 AUD

I feel like your build should be cheaper since mine is going to be $2100 or $2200 (savings not deducted) for a 4k build.

Monitor: 32 in 4k 60hz $440 (on deal) Amazon (model is LG 32UD59-B for comparison).

Also if you get a 1070, you may want to consider a 1080 since they are on sale for about $500 right now. One even comes with game but that deal ends in about 6-8hours.

Prices are because of where I live. A 1080 is $800 here.

Oh I see. And they won't let you order from the American Amazon site? That's a bummer.

I agree with this, however just remember that all Vega 56’s are blower style at the moment. If this doesn’t bother you and you can get one for a good price then it’s a great choice as they are marginally better than a 1070. Also 1070ti should be available today, might be worth looking at, again price depending.

Yeah if you think spending $50~ for 1070ti roughly for like 10fps max more then fair enough I guess. Regardless what you buy you get what you pay for.
