Broke monitor, is it time to upgrade GTX 670?

Hello all,

My 1080p Hp Pavilion 22xw monitor just broke and that got me thinking whether it is time to upgrade my GTX 670.

I was thinking of getting a 1080p 144hz monitor. I mainly play DotA2, Stardew, Minecraft and other light games.

My current set up is a ryzen 5 2600 with GTX 670. Perhaps getting a cheaper monitor + GPU upgrade would be better? I was hoping to get the RTX 30xx cards, but they are not available anywhere.

Regardless, any good monitor recommendations. I will not be going beyond 1080p. For a monitor I am willing to spend up to £200, but I might probably be better off getting a cheaper monitor with a new GPU.

Monitors I have been considering:

BENQ ZOWIE XL2411p - £190
Acer Nitro VG240Ybmiix 75Hz - £120

I'd say get at least a 27" with decent framerate then look into something like a 5700XT would be a decent card and not overly priced or wait for the 6700 cards or get lucky on a 3000 series, i think your be able to get a decent monitor for less than 200 put the extra towards the GPU.

Honestly with the games you play and the resolution you play at there isnt much point waiting for a 30 series card.. I would go for a 1660ti, RX5600xt or 5700xt.

In regards to the screen I would make sure it was at least 144hz with freesync as it makes for a much better user experience even just using the pc for day to day use.
