  1. Buy it if the price is good

  2. Your CPU will bottleneck the 1070 some, but it would still perform much better than a 1060. The problem is that 1070 prices are crazy high right now due to the mining craze. You might want to wait a month or two and you could see the prices drop significantly. The MSRP for the 1070 is $350. So if it cost much more than that, you may want to wait and find a better deal. Remember, RBG lighting has nothing to do with performance.

    Do you have a graphics card now? If that is the best resolution you have, then I would tell you not to get either the 1060 or the 1070 and I would get he 1050ti and use the left over money to buy a 1080p monitor. No matter the CPU or the GPU, a 1060 and a 1070 will give you the exact same performance on a 768p monitor.

    The only reason you would go ahead and buy a 1060 or a 1070 now is if you planned on buying a new monitor soon. Below is a really good monitor that will pair well with a 1050ti/1060/1070.

    In truth, if you cant afford both the card and the monitor now, then I would wait. See GPUs pricing is crazy right now because of miners. I am seeing 1070's that are selling for $500 where they should be around $350. So if money is an issue, then wait a month and see if the pricing goes down and you can use the $500 you have for the 1070 and get it and a monitor.

    Your other option is to go with AMD and a freesync monitor. But that would mean getting an AMD card. Right now they are in the $400-$500 range, where a couple of months ago you could get a 580 for $225 all day long. If you wait for these prices to go down, which they should as the price of Etherium is going down, then you could get a 580 and a really nice freesync monitor all of the price of what the card would cost you today. Here is a really good freesync monitor.

    at that resolution with your cpu you would be crazy to buy anything more then a gtx 1050 ti


    the lower the resolution the MORE cpu matters, yours is fairly weak dont waste money on a 1070 unless you get a 1440p monitor LOL

  6. In my country gtx 1070 strix cost me around 606 usd and i don't think gtx 1050 ti can run forza horizon 3 and i don't have enough money to buy another monitor which is 1440p and another thing is that i want rgb lightning so badly i luv that to much and the main problem is my dad is agreed to buy me a graphic card but if i say that i don't need that then they will never i thinks they will never buy me that again so what should i do i will upgrade my build nxt year when i collect enough money to upgrade my mobo and cpu so plz should i have to buy it and don't use it with my rig or should i have not to buy it and wait which means i will never get that graphic card again in my life

  8. I wants to ask another thing what will happens if i play the same game i.e Forza Horizon 3 with gtx 1070 strix on 768P plz waiting for ur reply
    Reply to starlin_1
  9. You will get the exact same fps with a 1070 that you will on a 1050ti while playing Forza 3 or any other game because your system will max out the monitor's capability.

    You cannot overclock that processor, it is locked. You need to get a "k" processor. Also, that motherboard cannot overclock a processor. You would need to get a "Z" motherboard.

  12. What will happens if i use hp 22es monitor with gtx 1070 strix and i5 6402 p processor plzz urgent help
    Reply to starlin_1
  13. The monitor will be your bottleneck. You would only be using about 50% of your system's capability.
