Rtx 4070 w/lesser cpu or 4060 ti with better cpu

Recommended Posts

Hi, I will be purchasing a new pc for GA flying using 1440 resolution. My budget is less than $1500 and that has me looking at a 4070 gpu (12 gb VRAM) with a cpu Core i7 12th Gen 12700F. the other option is a 4060 ti (8 gb VRAM) but with a i7 13700 cpu. Is the 12 gb VRAM the way to go? Thank you.

If you don't think you will ever go above 1440p or ever want to try VR, 4k or multi-monitor then I would go with the better CPU. The 4060TI should easily handle a single monitor, even an ultrawid, at 1440p. The CPU will be your limiting factor in that case.
