GPU for 1440p

Want to make the step up to 1440p. 60fps is fine for High/Ultra AAA titles, but if I can push frames a little higher the better, 144Hz not necessary.

GPU prices are stupid presently here in the UK, so what are my options? Browsing around it seems I am looking at any of the following 1070ti, 1080, 2070 or Vega56/64. Seem about right?

UK pricing for decent GPUs that are sold as new:

2070 prices start at £460

1080 prices start £450

1070ti prices start near £400

Vega 56 is about £400, 64 is £450

Won't be pulling the trigger now unless I see a good deal, especially with Black Friday in the not too distant future. I've watched and read reviews for these GPUs and they are reasonably close in terms of performance, especially when factoring in price (UK prices).

The hierarchy goes something like this give or take: 2070-1080-Vega64-1070ti-Vega56.

If those prices stay where they are what are your thoughts and suggestions?

I'm presently using a MSI 1060 6GB Gaming X for gaming at 1080p. It's fine and I can hold on to using it for now. Plan on selling it to offset any upgrade costs.

Edit: I've seen a MSI 1070ti Gaming X for £400 new, always liked those coolers. Combination of decent cooling and pretty quiet.

Grab a Vega 64, you won't regret it. Prices for them right now are lower than I've ever seem them here the in UK

Personally i would go with the rtx 2070. Its the fastest card in that list and the difference in price compared to the others is small.

Unless you have a Free-sync Monitor i would go with...

RTX 2070 / GTX 1080 > GTX 1070Ti. (in that order)

The RTX 2070 is a good option if you can find it at/by MSRP
