I'm putting together a gaming rig with an i5 11600k (liquid cooled) and GIGABYTE Z590 mobo... average RAM, GIGABYTE AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD, beefy PSU... everything is coming along nicely... with the end goal being to be playing on 1440p with in-game settings pretty high.
But now i need to choose my GPU. I have access to a 3060 Ti or a 3070 Ti for the same price (friendly scalper). I've read that the 3070 will likely cause a CPU bottleneck while the 3060 will be the opposite. I'm pretty new go all this, so I'm not sure I fully understand the issues involved with bottlenecking... or maybe I'm making it more complicated than it needs to be. Is the main problem that the component being bottlenecked will not be able to use 100% of its "power"... meaning that you're maybe not getting your money's worth out of of that component?
If that's the case, then I'm thinking I should definitely go with the 3070 Ti since it is costing me the same as the 3060 and will provide some future-proofing or perhaps get me a better resale price (if i ever choose to go that way). Does that sound about right or am I missing something that would actually make the 3060 Ti the better choice (with better performance) in my situation?
