Graphics Card Upgrade Suggestions

I've been holding off on upgrading my 670 due to the bitcoin mining price gouging; however, I think it's about that time to upgrade. I'm not interested in the 1080ti or 2080ti due to the crazy high prices. Even the 2080 seems a bit pricey at the moment. My question is, should I go with the 2070 or look to the 1070/1070ti series? I should note that I am also looking into purchasing Battlefield V, so those free downloads with the 2070 purchase are tempting.

My current PC specs are below.



Prefer to stay under $550

Gaming; other tasks are minimal

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 2GB
PC Power & Cooling 750W ATX12V / EPS12V

Acer Predator XB271HU 27" Monitor (1440p)

Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Cooler Master HAF 922 ATX Mid Tower Case






There's an added incentive for me that some of the card listings come with Battlefield V (Newegg).

Wow, you end up with a lot of stuff after several years. Good thing I found this subreddit. Anyway, I have a lot of used stuff to sell and it all works. Prices aren't set in stone but are preferred. I need automotive work done. Here's the broad picture.
ITEMS FOR SALE: EVGA GTX 570:$165 EVGA GTX 550 Ti:$65 EVGA GTX 550 Ti with messed up casing:$45 6GB (3x2GB) 1600Mhz PATRIOT RAM kit:$35 NETGEAR WNDR3300:$45 Cisco-Linksys E3000:$50 Palm Treo Pro:$25
GTX 570:Works fine, nothing wrong with it at all. Purchased from a close friend as an upgrade from my 550 Ti's.
GTX 550 Ti #1:Works fine, nothing wrong with it at all. Purchased from Newegg along with GTX 550 #2.
GTX 550 Ti #2:Ha. Here's a story. I bought the 550 Ti's to use in an SLI configuration. I was disappointed with the performance so I upgraded. Currently I have a GTX 670, GTX 570, and GTX 550 Ti #2 in the same computer mining Bitcoins. My mobo doesn't really like that and I had to cut (well, melt) the casing on the 550 Ti to fit around my SATA cables. It works completely fine but an eighth of the casing is removed.
Pretty components!
RAM:Works fine, nothing wrong with it.
WNDR300:Works fine, nothing wrong with it.
E3000:Works fine, nothing wrong with it, running DD-WRT, not the original adapter but has the same specs.
Treo Pro:Old unlocked GSM phone from Palm running Windows Mobile 6.1. I think on XDA you can find a way to flash it to Windows Mobile 6.5. Works fine but has a lot of cosmetic damage although screen only has a few small scratches. Battery doesn't hold a charge very long. No charger included but it's a normal MicroUSB.

[Build Help] Seeking Advice for 1500 USD Build

Hi all,
I am looking to build my first computer and would love to get your expert input. For the sake of putting all the information out there, I copied my post from Tom's Hardware, so it's a bit lengthy.
Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP.
Budget Range: Around 1500 USD.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: 1a. research/data work/programming (python, MATLAB, etc.), 1b. trading (possibly algorithm-based but not like high-frequency), and 2. general use.
Are you buying a monitor: No. I have 4 Dell 2007FP monitors that I would like to use w/ this system.
Do you need to buy OS: Yes.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference.
Location: Cambridge, MA.
Parts Preferences: No preference.
Overclocking: No (maybe out of curiosity in the future).
SLI or Crossfire: No (maybe out of curiosity in the future).
Your Monitor Resolution: 1600x1200.
I have a few specific questions:
  1. Is there a need for an aftermarket CPU cooler, or will the stock device be sufficient (given that I won’t be overclocking)?
  2. My impression is that the motherboard doesn’t have wireless capabilities (correct me if I’m wrong). If so, what wireless adapter should I get?
  3. Windows 7 or Windows 8? I know that there is a lot of debate about this. If it doesn’t really matter for my purposes, then I plan to go with Windows 8 for the simple reason that it seems more future-proof (by definition).
  4. Graphics card. I realize that it may be too much for what I plan to do esp. since I don’t game much, but I do need to be able to support the 4 Dell 2007FP monitors. Last night I also realized that I could just use the card to mine bitcoins/litecoins most of the time, which is why I made a last minute switch from the GTX 670, which apparently is bad at mining. In light of these comments, do you think the card is appropriate?
Any thoughts and recommendations would be greatly appreciated keeping in mind that my goal is to have a system that runs well and will be pretty solid for the next 3-4 years. Thanks in advance!

NVIDIA GeForce MX230 vs NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670. Comparative analysis of NVIDIA GeForce MX230 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 videocards for all known characteristics in the following categories: Essentials, Technical info, Video outputs and ports, Compatibility, dimensions and requirements, API support, Memory, Technologies. Yes, You can mine BTC with GTX 1050 Ti. But it will be highly unporfitable is you do such a thing. Instead just mine a different altcoin like Monero which is comparatively easier to mine on GPU’s. Tip: OR YOU COULD FIND ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA WHERE IM... Bitcoin mining is a new form of virtual money. The economics of it are fascinating, but the real interest for us is that you can use your GPU to accelerate the mining process, and you’ll be shocked at the difference between NVIDIA and AMD GPU performance. If you want to setup a Bitcoin box, this article will get you moving in the right direction. I have two GTX 670's in SLI and i've been trying to setup zcash mining software. I know that these maxwell kepler cards are older and won't have much earning power but they're what I have currently: I've tried setting up Nicehash on both Windows and Linux and both throw up a "Shader Model 5.0" not supported. I've seen this page: Since eth difficulty raised at 1.5T and expanse coin (eth fork), it's simple to mine with 2GB cards (with decred dual mining too) this coin. Expanse is announcing good things so I'm think it's undervalued with a good potential soon with tokenlab.
