    Howdy all,

    I am currently using a MSI 1070 and looking at upgrading and was wondering if the 2070 was a worthy choice or should i wait for something like the radeon vii?

    Cheers.

    Why would you get a second hand 1080ti for around the same price or more than a new 2070?

    If you already have a 1070 I'd just wait.

    So your argument is why buy a faster 2nd hand card for nearly the same price as a slower new card...?

    Yes, given the resolution, limited gain in performance and potential for issues due to it being second hand.
