Worth upgrading my GTX 1070 - to GTX 2070 ?

Wanted a quick opinion on the final decision I am making around my new build platform for AME/Premiere/After Effects etc.

Currently have an GTX Nvidia 1070 in my old  i7 6700K machine - and was planning to just swap that into my new  i9 9900k based machine.

New machine all SSD drives, with NVMe drive for project files/Previews/Cache as it is so fast. New machine also has 64GB DDR4 3200 memory. Z390 Motherboard.

I assume, ..... as I don't produce ultra complex Premiere projects with loads of layers/effects, the current GTX 1070 will be OK versus buying a new say .... GTX 2070. (GTX 2080 a bit expensive !)

You opinion/experience would be valued.

Maybe upgrade to a GTX 2080 - one day .... when my wallet has cooled down.

Thanks

At this point I would not waste money on that RTX 2070 if you're going to upgrade to an RTX 2080 or 2080 Ti months after the initial upgrade to that 2070. If you're going to eventually upgrade to an RTX 2080 anyway, then I recommend that you stick with your current GTX 1070 until you saved up enough money to buy that RTX 2080. I would only get that RTX 2070 if you're planning to stick with it for the longer term (say, several years).

Thanks.

Sounds sensible.

I'll replace the GTX 1070 with my GTX 470 in my old machine once I have finished my current project and can remove it.

The i7 machine will sit there as a weak back up !
